By 1989, it was a little late to be introducing an 8-bit home computer. M.G.T., however, was hoping that its Sam Coupe system would appeal to the many owners of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, with which the Sam Coupe was compatible. The company managed to sell the system for a few years, going bankrupt once and reemerging as SamCo.
