Amstrad Schneider CPC 464

Not all of Europe was graced with the Amstrad CPC 8 bit home-micro series, as more than a few countries had to go for the German and rather less colourful variant of the Schneider CPC. Anyway, what really matters is that the seller of this fully working Schneider CPC 464 sells worldwide, meaning that even non-European retro gamers can find out what the fuss was all about. The micro comes complete with a colour monitor, manuals, a joystick and quite a few games, mind.


  1. Never had a CPC, but it did have some good looking titles. Never liked the layout of the keyboard though - putting the numeric pad below the cursor keys never made any sense to me.

  2. Weeeell, you got used to such little things after the having experienced the horror of gaming on a Speccy 48k without a joystick. Oh, and you could give the WinApe CPC emulator a go.
