The Amstrad mouse was almost triangular in shape both in planform and side
view, and had 2 oblong grey buttons on it. I have one somewhere but I haven't
got most of my collection sorted out yet because we moved house 6 months ago.
I have only just got our new house networked, sorting out the 2 spare
