Amstrad PPC640

Recently I acquired an Amstrad PPC640. It is a PC compatible portable computer, built in 1988. It has an LCD screen, but it doesn’t open like today’s laptops. Keyboard flips off the cover, and the LCD screen is then raised from inside. It comes with MS-DOS 3.3 and Amstrad’s Organizer software package, which includes card file, calculator, diary and phone dialer.


  • CPU – NEC V30 at 8MHz
  • RAM – 640KB
  • ROM – 16KB
  • Screen – 9″ LCD
  • Sound – Beeper
  • Weight – 6kg
  • Power Supply – 10 C Cell Batteries
  • Drives – 2 720KB Floppy Drives
  • Comms – Modem
