Absolutely. And it was confirmed by others above. Those are the models I suggested to them but I forgot about the Amstrads. (I have let them know since).

My NZ Bits and Bytes run out on Feb, 1988 but by that time it had become very business-oriented. The only ads I could find were for PC-compatibles and Macs.
Just to give you the latest update, the researcher sent someone to check mags etc. in the library. Thy found some ads and confirmed that the models above were the home computers at that time Some of the various bundles (mostly the C64) were within the ball park of those original figures.
