The Amstrad PC1512 was Alan Sugar’s attempt to break into the IBM PC Compatible market with a machine that was cheaper than the competition, whilst still being fairly well equipped. The PC1512 was a reasonable success that might have done better if it weren’t for nasty rumors (possibly spread by IBM themselves) and production issues meaning the HDD models were in short supply. Join me for this updated review/retrospective (because my original one a few years ago was a pile of unreserved crap), and let’s look at the history and details of this Amstrad PC.
