Default Re: Non-working Commodore PET 3016

The original IBM PC was launched as long ago as 1981, but IBM-compatible PCs did not really "take off" in the UK until the mid to late late 1980s, with the launch of the Amstrad PC1512 and 1640. Until then, the few firms that had already adopted 8-bit computers were still squeezing the last drops of life from them; and RM and Acorn had the education market pretty much to themselves.
