The Amstrad PPC640 Portable 8086 Overview

Here’s an Amstrad PPC-640 I picked up a little while ago. It was an accidental purchase as I was explaining to a work colleague how eBay bidding works. And I won it… I’ll probably be passing this one along as 8086 machines are before my time. 8086 just doesn’t seem as whiz bang after seeing a 1983 Apple Lisa up and running…

It reminds me of a giant Game Boy screen though when it is switched off. Dual 720KB floppy drives with the worst ever viewing angles. Quite a beast back in the day I am sure.

Enjoy the video anyway, not much of an overview but it was late at night after a busy week. I figured that I’d put off recording a video of some sort for long enough. Enjoy!
