Amstrad CPC464

The CPC464 had a built-in cassetterecorder. After the quarrel between

Amstrad and Schneider (who sold the CPC-series, the Joyce and the PCs in

Germany) it was sold as the Amstrad CPC464 in Germany. Schneider started

to produce own PC-clones, the most popular one is the Euro-PC.

Although the CPC could not beat the C64 it was a popular computer in

Europe and Amstrad sold over one million units. Other CPC-computers are

the CPC664 (like the 464 but with an integrated 3"-disk drive instead

of the cassette recorder), the CPC6128 and the CPC+.
