Not many know this (but we are about to fix this, aren't we?), but I really do love the Amstrad CPC 6128. And that's besides the sweet, sweet memories of playing with the thing over at a friends place... I do, you see, love its tiny 3" diskettes, the compact design, the proper keyboard and of course the fact that it was quite a powerful 8-bit computer that could really do multi-load stuff properly. Oh, and you can easily have a taste of quality CPC gaming on your modern computer with a little help from the excellently freeware WinAPE emulator.
Better yet, and provided you live somewhere in Britain (though there is an option for worldwide shipping apparently), you can grab this pretty amazing Amstrad CPC 6128 over at eBay. Not only will you be getting a complete CPC 6128 with a colour monitor, but also a CPC 464, a joystick and a ton of games both on tape and disk.
