Goupil G4

The G4 computer represents the real entry of the S.M.T. Goupil company in the professional computers world. The time of the craft period with systems intended for a small circle of computers hobbyists and teachers is over. With the G4, the french manufacturer clearly affirms his will to quickly penetrate the companies and administrations market.

The future will show that this new positioning will be successfull, partly thanks to the qualities of the G4 : modern and fast microprocessor, full compatibility with IBM standard, but also thanks to a dynamic and coherent european marketing policy.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).

At one time, the Goupil G4 was considered as the fastest available IBM-PC compatible.
The company went to Stock Markets and shares soared.
False statement were issued (the company started loosing money but issed false invoices to report non-exisiting sales increase) and Goupil closed with a minor scandal.
