Amstrad PCW 8256
We don't know too much about this Amstrad so to quote this page at trusy Old-Computers.com:
The Amstrad PCW 8256 was a dedicated word processing computer (PCW stands for Personal Computer Wordprocessor). It was supplied with everything necessary, the word processor, printer and dedicated keyboard (with Cut, Copy, Paste and Print keys). This model had great success because it was the first word-processing system available for such a low price. Once again Amstrad used the same principles with this professional computer as it did with the CPC-464 on the home-computer market. Two years later, 700 000 PCW systems had been sold!
This system was introduced in 1985 and some models were affectionately known as "Joyce" after the secretary of Alan Sugar, the founder of Amstrad. We would like to thank Jenny Lind for the donation of these two systems!
