Probably I'm too late for this thread. But I would keep and at the
same time get a second assembled ZX81 to play with. To hell with the
monetary value, but it's nice to have one machine to run and another
box of parts to see, feel, and show off what it is made of. I recently
covered my own future with C64s and I bought two. One to run the other
to keep. If there had ever been a kit, I would have kept the kit
for the second one.
