Well, I'll agree it's a minimalist design. Beauty, however, is in the eye
of the beholder.

I thought the Sorceror had an internal mains PSU and you just plugged it
in. I will check before you apply 110V (or 240V) to the 5V line, though.

The processor was a Z80.

The only built-in 'language' was a machine code monitor. Basic and other
software - I have a text editor/word processor somewhere - were in ROM
cartridges that plugged into the side of the machine. These cartridges
were, in fact 8-track tape cases with a little PCB inside them.
