In total - for everything - games, programs, style etc.

Which was the better machine - I'm also thinking of technical spec here.

Sinclair but I have to add that it's only because It was home to my very first video game experience. Specs and stuff take a backseat in this poll. For me it's all about the nostalgia.."meeeeeemmmmooriiieeeees" :)

Oh, in that case i voted for the Speccy; it was the weaker hardware spec but was much better balanced on that front, the programmers did some incredible things with it and, although they both have their good titles, there are more games that are worth playing for the Speccy.

Gee.... Amstrad perhaps as an all-round super-duper machine from the 80's?

Or

Sinclair for the awesome C5 Moto-scooter-car-mini-thingy???

So Chaps it would def have to be amstrad for me purely on the nostalgia reasons though :D

Although certainly on a technical level the amstrad would have been superior anyway 8)

Amstrad all the way

Amstrad was great...if you wanted a word processor

For gamers , only Sir Clive's machine would do
