Very nice indeed.

What was it with Amstrad and garish coloured keyboard keys?!

Looks a little like the Cambridge Z88 but nowhere near as cool-looking as Sir Clive's micro.

The Amstrad has a Z80, but the Tandy and other Nakajima series all have NEC v20 x86 processors.

Another nice bit of kit for the collection.
