Marathon a.k.a. almost any combination of the previous names that I mentioned. Once upon a time it was known as the cheapest home computer you could get, I think it was sold for less than a ZX-81. My big brother once had one, but despite my general interest in vintage computers of all kinds and having used one before, I'm not terribly excited about it. As mentioned, if you replace the ROM you can make it ZX-81 compatible. As it stands, it has 2K RAM, one channel of beeper sound and Atari compatible joystick port. There was a colour expansion and of course memory expansions for the Lambda, but I don't think it made it much better for being a computer available in 1983/84. You probably could get something like a Video Technology Laser/VZ 200/210 for the same amount of memory, if e.g. a ZX Spectrum was too expensive for you and a VIC-20 or TI-99/4A took too much desk space.
