Sinclair Computer Designs featured in Printed Publications 2013
Even almost 30 years after the launch of the Sinclair QL Professional Computer, the QL still fascinates the world (at least part of). There's quite an interesting lot of coverage around Design and History of the QL in various 2013 printed publications, may it be magazines or even a book. Features include the QL, its predecessor, (potential) successors like the QL+, QL Wafer or Super QL and other Designs by Sinclair Research Ltd such as the Pandora Laptop Computer which evolved into the Cambridge Computers Z88 Notepad Computer in 1987. Rick Dickinson - former Industrial Designer at Sinclair Research Ltd - contributed quite a lot to the book DELETE by Paul Atkinson. David Karlin - former Chief Design Engineer of the QL at Sinclair Research Ltd - was interviewed by Urs König for an article in the QL Today magazine. All those publications can still be ordered online, see links below.
