Fully restored Amstrad CPC 6128

Still haven't managed to grab my very own CPC 6128, still can't imagine where I'd ever manage to set one up, but I still absolutely love this powerful, sleek 8-bit micro and its brilliant 3" disks. On the other hand, more than a few people would probably be more than eager to provide a home for this Amstrad CPC 6128 that recently appeared on eBay. Seller ships worldwide.

This particular 6128 has been fully restored and cleaned and apparently works perfectly. It comes with its original manual, the CP/M OS on a disk, a typing tutor utility and a joystick.
