PCW 9512

The Amstrad PCW 9512 was a dedicated word processing computer. It was the successor to the Amstrad PCW 8512 and had the same basic characteristics. However, it corrected two of the main criticisms of the 8512: the low quality of the printer and the machine's non-business-like styling.

It had a paper-white monochrome screen (black on white) unlike the 8512, which had a green monochrome screen (green on black). It was equiped with a 3" 720k floppy disk drive (a second one could be added) and used a daisywheel printer instead of the dot matrix printer of the PCW 8256/8512.

Like the previous models, it could run CP/M+ and was supplied with the Locoscript V2 word processor including LocoSpell and LocoMail, and Mallard Basic, both made by Locomotive software. DR Logo was also supplied as standard.

In 1991, two new models were produced :
- A cut-down model called the PcW 9256 (same characteristics, but only 256 KB RAM and a 3.5" disk-drive) which was a replacement in the PCW range for the PCW-8256.
- The PcW-9512+ which replaced the PCW-9512. It was almost the same machine but with a 3.5" 720K drive.

Finally in 1993, these models were replaced with the PcW-10.

Becky, pretty sure 499 was the retail price back then! As this site mentions, they sold 700,000 of these! Since demand for them isn''t quite what it was, a bit of basic economics tells me you might get 10 or 20 quid for it, if someone really wants one.

Collectors of old computers are nearly all private individuals reliving their past, and appreciating the specialness that''s hard to explain. We''re usually not rich, and we''re certainly not insane!

Perhaps someone online will be grateful to get it off you cheap, postage will be a bugger though.

I am hoping to get some advice. After having a clear out I have come across a working (I think!) Amstrad pcw 9512 and wanted to know the best place to sell this?

Can anyone recommend somewhere that would buy vintage computers and also what sort of price I could expect as I saw £499 on this site but wasn''t sure!

Any help would be great as would like to sell ASAP!
