Welcome :)

Well, you can always edit the poll and add it, but let me ask you this: if the EU was to invade your country, whose side would you fight on? :)

I'm British, currently living in Southampton, UK.

My sister and I got a CPC 464 back in 1984. I finally upgraded to a 6128 about 5 years later but I still had plenty of fun playing games from the old cassette tapes ;)

Oh, Turkey! This is very interesting. I see visits to the Wiki coming from Turkey, but we know nothing about Amstrad in this country... could you care to tell us something? How big it was, where was it distributed etc...?

    CPC was the third popular 8bit machine in Turkey. However, the popularity wasn't so much achieved by general market, but by especially education market. EKAKOMP was the local distributor for AMSTRAD, but they weren’t so talented like TELETEKNİK of COMMODORE. We had a Mag named "Sizin Amstrad". We can't talk about CPC scene in Turkey. So, what we have(about CPC or CPC related) nowadays are:

This is a nice collection of links. Do you have a scan of Sizin, maybe even the cover only?

I've got a spare 6128 Plus I could sell to you, but it's a french (AZERTY) one, are you interested?

Hi Alcofribas!

Nice info on Amstrad in Turkey!
So cool, never thought about there being something Amstrad related in Turkey!!

I am very curious!

What were the 2 most popular homecomputers of the era?
How many issues was made of Sizin Amstrad? Are there any scans?

I'm not sure about the total of issues. Approx. 10. It's sad for the CPC users.

But for the Commodore users:

For the Sizin Amstrad scans, please follow the Wiki :)
