Timex Sinclair 16k Ram Module - 1016

(Timex Sinclair)

16k Memory module for the Timex Sinclair 1000
One of the biggest limitations of the TS1000 computer is that it had only 2k of memory. This memory expansion module added 16k of ram to the computer, giving it much more usability and functionality... transforming the Sinclair into a practical platform for home computing.
This 1016 ram pack plugged into the bus expansion port on your TS-1000, expanding your memory to a whopping 18k... vastly increasing the capacity of the the computer to run larger and more viable programs.
I actually had two modules piggybacked on mine to have a total of 34k of memory even though to the best of my recollection, I never used more than 16-18k for even the most advanced programs I ran. It just looked "cool" and provided bragging rights.
