You can use the dates on the ICs to tell when a CPC with serial number X was actually manufactured.

Bryce.


What we do know is that Amstrad made 70,000 664's. (source: The Amstrad Story) and that the total figure is somewhere near 3 million.


As a publicly listed company, Amstrad's Annual Report might yield info. Anyone ever looked?

Wow that is alot of revenue 3 million CPC say at £400 thats £1.2Bn in revenue, 8 million PCW at £500 is £4Bn in revenue a huge amount of money in the 80s.  No wonder Alan is so well off!  Wonder what sort of margin they made on each unit?

Anyway sorry to butt in maybe someone could contact Amstrad and ask if they still have records, I know they owned by Sky now but you never know.
