Mine definitely says 120V 60Hz 1.1A on the back plate. Made in
Korea, FCC ID A7R9K2PC-4A. No mention of Amstrad UK, but rather
Amstrad International (USA) Inc., 3202 Doolittle Drive, Northbrook,
IL, 60062. The curious thing is that the label refers to it as a
"monitor". No reference to it being a computer of any sort.

Yes, but that's useless if what you want to do is boot from a 720K
and have 2x720K of floppy storage online.
