Komputer 2086

The Unipolbrit[1] Komputer 2086 was a Polish version of the home computer Timex Sinclair 2068, produced by a joint venture of the Polish state-owned Unimor and foreign company Polbrit International. The machine wasn't 100% ZX Spectrum-compatible (like all other Timex Sinclair versions) and a "Spectrum Emulation" cartridge was available (usually bundled).[2][3][4]
