Released in 1987, the Spectrum+3 is the final ZX Spectrum, released by Amstrad under the Sinclair brand.
The Spectrum+3 is similar to the Spectrum+2A but with a 3-inch floppy disk drive instead of a tape deck. It is worth noting that a tape deck can still be added to the Spectrum+3.
Production of the Spectrum+3 ended in 1990, bringing an end to the classic ZX Spectrum computer, at least in terms of the original machine. There is still a huge following for the ZX Spectrum with many ZX Spectrum inspired clones having been developed.
