An information found from 1986 about the CPC sales figures :

An international American research firm (INTERNATIONAL DATA Corporation), has discovered that Amstrad has sold more computers in Europe in 1986 that any other manufacturer, IBM and Commodore together.

The british company has sold a total of 1750 000 machines, One third of all the computers sold in Europe.

True, those numbers mix both family computers and pro computers. But the performance remains very impressive.

Commodore, which like Amstrad is selling family computers and PC compatible machines, is dethroned by its british competitor with
1 200 000 machines sold.

This article was dated from june 1987.
