Look for everything related to EP128, Videoton 64...
« on: 2007.March.04. 20:28:12 »
Hello,

I am happy to discover an english forum about one of my favourite computer as it's very difficult to get information in France.

I am looking for everything related to Enterprise and Videoton computer : hardware, software... I can trade with some french computers for exemple (but not only), or buy.

Bye !

Hello,

In fact, I know quite nothing on Enterprise in France. I know that Lansay (the name of the company who imported it) was near my high school but the computer was so expensive for me (300 pounds)...

Do you know Lansay ? They still sell in France a lot of toys here and some videogames (the TVGames froms Jakks).

This article (from "Tilt") is not a good one (they didn't tell hires was only possible on a 128K model for exemple), I prefered the one published in "Hebdogiciel" (they told the Basic was very slow).

From what I remember, only the 64 model was sold in France under the name of Lansay 64, very few units were sold, I have never seen softwares and books in shops, I have never seen an AZERTY (french) keyboard. Here the most popular computers were Oric, Thomson, CPC, ZX...

Of course I contacted Lansay (they moved), but they didn't keep anything about this computer and nobody remember of it. One day, while I was in University (1989 ?), I saw a man selling few Lansay 64 on a market under the rain. In this time, I wanted an Amiga, I was stupid to not buy this cheap Lansay 64.

Bye !

Can you found anywhere this article?

These are re-labelled as Lansay? Or only shown as standard english EP64?

I found one french man, who have Enterprise 64. On the photos I see standard english machine.
(Can you write to he and recommending our forum?)

Now you have any Enterprise? If yes, please write to the "Your Enterprise configuration?" topic.

Sorry I don't have this Hebdogiciel, it's rather difficult to find it now (I read it long long time ago and I didn't copy it). If I find it again, it'll tell you.

Relabelled box only I think but even that I am not sure.

If I well remember he sold his on ebay, I wanted to buy it few monthes ago...

Unfortunatly from what I know people who have an EP64/128 in France don't do anything with it, they are just collecting computers, sleeping in a cellar. The most active communities here are working on Thomson TO/MO, Oric, Amstrad, Atari ST/Amiga.

I planed to do it later as I am not near my EP128 now.

I told them earlier to summarize the topics and posts here in English, but it seems nobody does this regularly...
