   New here. Any idea what an Amstrad PC 6400 would go for? Everything
works great including the monitor. (From what I was told about it years
ago was that the works are included in the monitor, not the piece the
monitor sits on. I bought this computer new in the 80's..don't quite
remember if it was the early 80's or what.) I have the manuals and
everything for it. It has 2 dual disk drives (256K I think). I have the
software and everything. Funny though, I still use it as I have things I
put on word processing on those large floppies that I never knew how to
retrieve to a smaller disc for my modern computer. The monitor is not
the original one though. That one started smoking one day in the rear
and I never used it again and threw it out. I found an Amstrad color
monitor--the exact same one--in a pawn shop and use that one. Matches in
color and everything. Regards, Bob
