Amstrad Joyce/PCW 8256

The Joyce (PCW 8256) was a computer for word processing. Apart from that Basic and Dr.Logo were delivered with every Joyce. A 3"-diskdrive was integrated in the green monitor. The Joyce was an all-in-one computer which was always delivered as a complete system with printer, diskdrive, monitor and computer.
Although the Joyce was not a good game-machine there were even some games and a joystick-interface coming from the U.K. like a version of Ocean's Batman.
