The Amstrad CPC is a series of 8-bit home computer consoles produced by Amstrad between 1984 and 1990. It was designed to compete in the mid-1980's home computer market that, at the time, was dominated by the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum, and it successfully established itself primarily in the UK, France, Spain and the German-speaking parts of Europe. The series was pitched against other home computers primarily used for playing video games and enjoyed a strong supply of gaming software. The comparatively low price for a complete computer system with a dedicated monitor, high-resolution monochrome text and graphic capabilities, and the possibility to run CP/M software also made the system attractive to business users, which was reflected in it's wide selection of application software.
