Hey guys,I thought I'd start this section off with a trip down memory lane,I was 13 back in 83,This was my first PC.Such fond memories the clunk click keyboard,the sound of demented cat as a game loads.I used to sit for hours trying to type my own basic,and machine code.Can you remember the Poke command that would double the speed of the processor,then would crash 10 mins later lol.

My upgrade was the Amstrad 464cpc,now this was my favourite.Lots of features,loads of Ram well it was good for the old days.

My Parents had an Amstrad Word processor - the first one with a Black and White (opposed to Blue and White) Screen! It used a start up disc and Loco processor type, and had chess and this really weird Role Player/Puzzle and a limites spellcheck! Why do retro computers always turn yellow!

Did it have 8MB of Ram? or maybe even a Sound card! I love looking back at those old computer catalogues from 1994... WOW! 100Mhz!!!
