Amstrad PC1640/HD30

I used to have three slightly different models of PC1640, all of which came from Grapevine Information Services. As with the PC1512 they were used for about 4 years as viewdata editing machines, with only the monitors being switched off overnight. Unfortunately two of them had to be recycled, so I now have a single PC1640 left.
