Commodore 128 (25%)
Amstrad CPC 6128 (75%)
Brief synosis of these 8 bit systems
The Commodore 128 had 128 kb memory and, well, like the Commodore 64 had a good sound chip
The CPC 6128 had better graphics than the Commodore, but the sound is nothing extraordinary.
So vote in the poll!
Kinda addicted to polls there, ain't ya?
And, in answer to the poll, neither.
Dont think I have ever seen a C128! Was it much more expensive than a C64 ?
If you looked hard enough, you could get a Commodore 128 for £250 punts. C 64 would retail for about £150 punts
£1 punt = €1.27
If I had to have a Commodore and had moved on from the C64 I think the obvious upgrade path would be to the Amiga 500.
A similar thing was with the Spectrum.
Sinclair/Amstrad would have loved if everyone's answer was one of the 128k machines, but more likely people bought into the Atari At or Amiga instead.
Me, I just took a break and bought a Gameboy in 1990 instead.
Eleventy-six percent of Spectrum owners would burn both options at the stake.
yes i owned a 48k 'rubber wonder'
The awful colour clash was never got rid of though on the 128k Specstrad mind.
Amstrad 6128(+) all day every day.
Always wanted (still looking for one) a CPC 6128 .
My neighbour had one as a kid and there were some fun games on it.
Didn't even know there was a C128 till a few years ago tbh,
The logical upgrade from the C64 -and only we really knew of at the time, was to the Amiga 500 (or the Atari 520ST for some poor lost souls )
The real genius is the work done on the Spectrum within those visual and aural limits.
It's easy to get smooth scrolling and amaze-balls music from a C64, it takes talent to get that from a Spectrum.
I'd go for the C128, but i don't know of any software that was coded for it.
I probably would choose neither at the time. Better systems were available
Name one. Any one.
Do i have a budget?
