Well the Amstrad was a kind of all in one computer so parents will kept their TV.
Add to this that a C64 was expensive even more with a 1541 not counting A monitor.
I went the Oric way, but I wouldn't have bought a CPC having seen and heard a C64. Same story goes for Atari ST and Amiga.

It didn't worked because people here were not attracted by the colors / look / overall.

French prefered the CPC because it had this mix between Workstation and game machine mix. The word spread out very fast in engineers circles here. So much that on 100 people, you could find back in the day 80 having an amstrad CPC. C64 anyone ? Nooo !!!

Otherwise, we were very fond of the amiga, because it brought up Speed AND colors !
it was the best of both worlds.
