First of all, I'm not sure if I'm permitted to put this ad up as it's not pi related, and if its not allowed I apologize. But it is geek related, as my missus would say, and I know there will be some on here that will appreciate the nostalgia.
I've got an old(1988) Amstrad PPC640 portable PC that I am reluctantly moving on. I've had it for about 10 years and it just sits in a cupboard. Were having a major clear out and I've been told ' its got to go!'. But I would really like it to get a new lease of life rather than ending up in a landfill site.
The computer worked last time I fired it up and I will test it before anyone takes it away. Its got its power supply, manuals some discs and its carry Case.
For the technically minded here's some gumph about it.....
8088 CPU @ 4.77 MHz
2 - 720K FDD
LCD Screen with MGA/CGA video connector. Optional external monitor available gets DC power supply from computer. Or you can use a regular Mono or CGA monitor and control video mode with built in DIP switch.
101 key keyboard
2 Serial Ports
1 Parallel Port
Real time clock
Uses 10 "C" batteries or 12 volt AC adapter
Internal 2400 baud Modem w/standard telephone connection.
Software supplied with computer: MS-DOS 3.3 w/special Amstrad functions CrossTalk Mirror 11
Weight with carrying case, manuals, power supply and OEM disks is 22 lbs.
Realistically I don't think it has much financial value, so I'm up for a swap....anything raspberry pi related....try me.
Its quite hefty, so collection would be preferred but I'm prepared to cover the postage anywhere in mainland UK.
Thanks for looking and thanks to the forum admin for letting me post this.
