Computing in 1982 - October

The October 1982 issue of Your Computer looked at the threat to British manufacturers posed by a new wave of microcomputer imports from the US and the Far East.

Against a backdrop of delivery not-quite-in-28-days these new machines looked likely to offer an alternative of high street convenience, with no delivery delays if the machines were in stock, and should the machines be faulty, they could be taken straight back for exchange or refund like any other goods.

Whilst the reviewers were generally impressed by the new wave of machines, one stood out in particular - the Commodore 64, which went on to become one of the key machines in the development of home computing.

Also this month, the usual collection of low-level assembler and machine code utilities, and a little bit of Forth as well.
