Amstrad CPC was basically a “series of 8-bit home computers produced by Amstrad during the 1980s and early 1990s. CPC stood for ‘Colour Personal Computer’, although it was possible to purchase a CPC with a green screen (GT65/66) as well as with the standard colour screen (CTM640).” Video after the jump.

Amstrad initially promoted the CPC as being an improvement on the competing ZX Spectrum and C64 because it was a complete system – including everything required to use the machine in one box. Compared to a C64 or a ZX Spectrum, the Amstrad CPCs shipped with their own monitor, had a built in tape recorder or floppy disk drive and even a small loudspeaker
