Timex Computer Portugal TC 2048 Sinclair Zx Spectrum Clone tested:
$89

Timex Computer 2048 computer. It was manufactured in Portugal in the 1980s, in a factory that Timex had south of Lisbon.
It has plastic keys, on-off switch, joystick port on the side (Kempston compatible), a monitor connection and a high resolution mode.
External condition: in great condition. The case is very good. The keyboard overlay is excellent, quite rare to find it in this condition. Some keys are slightly yellowed, but it's only noticeable in the photos, when you look at the computer you don't detect it. 4 or 5 keys have minimal wear (q-a-o-p-ss). Please check the photos.
I've loaded and played the game "Monty on the run" without problems, using a cassette player.
The side Kempston joystick port works.
The image is great and both the monitor and RF outputs work (pictures shown were taken using the monitor connection on a Sony LCD TV).
The sound is also great.
Although the computer is working, you should note that it's more than 30 years old, so if you plan to use it regularly, please consider seriously a general check-up and refurbishment by someone qualified, replacing the capacitors, the voltage regulator, etc.
Let me know if you need more information. I am not an expert, but I will try to solve your questions as best as I can.
Included in this sale: TC 2048 computer only, so no PSU, joystick, accessories, box, etc.
Please note that Zx Spectrum PSUs (1.0 or 1.4 Amp 9v Dc center negative) and cables (RF and tape) can be used with this computer.
