Amstrad PC1512/SD

This machine came from Grapevine Information Services. It was used very successfully for over 4 years as a viewdata editing machine until a fuzzy display meant that the machine has to be replaced. Until that point it had been in constant use for 4 years, with only the monitors being switched off.
