Amstrad CPC/PCW


In mid 1984 Amstrad released the CPC464 taped based home computer into a market then dominated by Commodore's C64 and Atari's A800. Featuring a color or monochrome monitor included in the base price they were a bargain and over the five years they were produced gained a loyal following. Three models were produced as well as a dedicated word-processing derivative, not counting the rehashed Plus versions and the wacko GX4000 console.

This is the first computer I owned. It also saw the release of the first magazine to be produced by a fledgling publishing company called Future plc who released Amstrad Action magazine into the market.
