Amstrad PC 1640 / PC 6400

The Amstrad PC 1640 was first made in 1986. It has a Intel 8086 processor running at 8 MHz and 640KB of system RAM. 

It was sold under the name PC 6400 in the US and PC1640 in Europe.

At the time, it was a good cheap alternative to an IBM PC and was as good as 100% compatible.

The main power supply was not in the system case, but inside the monitor.
