● Description

Europe was weened on low cost 8bit micros in the home, spending in excess of £1000 on a home computer seemed absured when we were used to £399 for a complete machine including monitor. So how would we ever adopt IBM PC's with their huge price tags? Amstrad had the answer. Lets take a look at the PC1512 and PC1640 which took Europe by storm.
