Well, Amstrad wasn't really big over here, but they did sell a few machines.
Other Amstrad's I've got (second hand) are the PDA600 "PenPad" and the PC-20
(sort of a CoCo-ish/Atari ST-ish one-piece PC).

btw, there was another PPC640 that sold on eBay this weekend, but it was
complete, with power supplies, software, and a really neat case. I didn't
get it, though. 8^(
