Title: New AMSTRAD!
Post by: kevin.c on 13:49, 25 March 15
I wonder if you know this AMSTRAD DA-155 and why it is not presented in cpcwiki. It  has some interesting functions, that other models doesn't.

Ah, a bright GT66 Monitor eventually, it was about time. However I don't like this Mac-like design.

If you combine this Amstrad tool with RetroBright(R) you can make a 464 look like the Grey Arnold :D That's how they build it

Ah all that modern crap. Everything built in and no way to expand. Really, too much apple ideology here.  :laugh:

Don't complain so much. It follows the Amstrad "just one power cable" rule.

It's a shame Amstrad was so quick to drop the spectrum name on products they got from the spectrum r&d dept. when they aquired all their stock  ;)

Where is the first time the word amstrad appears in spain?.

Was time time ago at finish of sigle xiii.  It appears in a relate of a news paper of the epoque in  a story write many years ago by a french writer called eugen sue in 1856.

The history is located in the roman empire near the city of magnuvia in the rhin river.  It relate the battle of victorino future roman emperor in the 130 a.d with the barbare.

Amstrad was the name of a defile where a battle begin.

As a curiosity the book was called children of the town. And was prohibited by the catolic chuch. Opps!
