A had a few really old (mid 90's) Atelco katalogues. Depending where you are in Germany, you probably knew Atelco too?

Bryce.


I cant remember that name, maybe it wasnt popular in the south of germany where i lived. I remember Vobis, Escom, comtech and later k&m and also pc spezialist.

I have a fair collection of the old UK Personal Computer World magazines.  I like them at least as much for the advertising as for the editorial. A lot of the earlier, and more interesting ones are on-line now on Archive.org. (Here's a good one for the true 464 fans: May 1984. ) Lots of prices to remind you how much chips and particularly RAM cost back in the 80s, and why the Apple II never really took off in the UK.  :o



And if you like ads from back in the day as well as the price lists, then there's a lot to see here.

Christ, the first 124 pages of PCW are 100% adverts! (But there's a nice one for @ZEUSDAZ on p.102 :D ).

Thanks for the nosher.net link, never seen that before...

I think we had a 15% general VAT back in those days in Spain and a 20% Luxury VAT.

Yeah, It's kind of laughable really. I used to live in Canada and a guy I worked with was telling me how he spotted a dodgy website because as he told me "it had VAT @ 20% and no sales tax in the world was over 10%." I had to explain to him how things worked in the U.K.. His jaw hit the floor. He was incredulous.
