Nice story http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/02/12/archaeologic_amstrad_cpc_464/

Why should it interest you? Well, the CPC 464 prompted Amstrad Action and the PCW8256 PCW Format which indirectly led on to LinuxFormat.

Amstrad were late to the home computing party at just about the time 8-bit computing had become a known quantity and not that interesting. The Amiga was also around (in some form) in Jan 1984 and that was a truly amazing machine for the time.

Brings back memories - Richard, Dave and I were among the same close circle of friends at college. Halcyon days!

Still have my PCW in the attic, and it still worked last time I tried it.

Anybody remember the short-lived Computer Age magazine? I have a complete collection for sale - only a few dozen issues - if anybody knows how to put a value on them.
