This website really is ace. Recently came to own one of these machines. A fascinating piece of history. Quite practical as a distraction free writing machine. One query: Does anyone know which printers it is compatible with?

I purchased an NC100 in 1992 for $A399 to type menus for my restaurant. I later purchased a 512K memory card for $189!
The Australian flyer proudly boasts "In 10 seconds flat, anyone can use it" and was promoted as the "Amstrad Notepad".

I purchased an NC 100 around 1994 for 200,- DM (approx. 100,- EUR) in a local electronic store. It served me for more than two years in my studies where I used it to type the lectures directly into the system. With all my classmates writing by hand this was really exotic back those days. I used kind of a "simplified" LaTeX notation which I converted into "real" LaTeX on my computer at home using some scripts in a Linux environment. this setup allowed me to type even complex mathematical formulas almost error-free in realtime!

I still have the device and while not using it any more today, I will keep it - it was my first "Laptop"...

The Amstrad NC-100 is closely related to the Tandy WP2 in that both have have mainboard manufactured by Citizen CBM Division.
As a collector, I recently aquired an NC100. I found the display rather dim, but everything else about the unit was impressive. I have since aquired Citizen Hi-Contrast displays for the NC100. I upgraded my unit and it looks great and very crisp. If anyone is interested I can do the same for them.
