Announcement   Announcement : Amiga Vs Spectrum in MicroMart: Champions Computer Final
   posted by SvenHarvey on 13-Apr-2003 22:55:41 (1469 reads)
Sven Harvey makes the case for Amiga systems getting the glory of being MicroMart's computer champion. Colin Woodcock also summs up some of the Spectrum's good points. Which one should win? You can participate by voting at the MicroMart forums . Read more for Sven's comments on which matches have been won by both solutions:

Over the last few months the greats of the home computer world have been pitted against each other in the pages of the UK weekly magazine, MicroMart. The Mac was beaten in an earlier round by the Amiga and the PC knocked out in the same round by the BBC! The giant killing Amstrad CPC which took out the ST and C64, was finally subjugated by the legend that is the Sepctrum in the quarter finals, whilst the Amiga knocked out the BBC in its quarter final, and now its the final.

Can the Amiga really topple the legendary Spectrum? Only time will tell...

I never saw the attraction to the Spectrum anyhow. Sure, it was cheap and had loads of software and everyone and their pet tortoise wrote software that would be let down by it's cack hardware but compared to the likes of the Atari 8-bit range and C64 they were just that... cack.

(Just an "unbiased" opinion from a bitter old Atari 8-bit user )

Caught a bolt of lightning... Cursed the day he let it go!
