Amstrad CPC 464 PPC MP1 Boxed System

The PP6 was a 1986 Promotional Pack with 15 Games and a joystick.

The Amstrad MP-1 Modulator allows you to connect the CPC 464 computer to a television, rather than the monitor. The MP-1 also suppled the power to the CPC

The Amstrad CPC (short for Colour Personal Computer) was a series of 8-bit home computers produced by Amstrad between 1984 and 1990. It was designed to compete in the mid-1980s home computer market dominated by the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, where it successfully established itself primarily in the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and the German-speaking parts of Europe.

The CPC464 featured 64 kB RAM and an internal cassette tape deck. It was introduced in June 1984 in the UK. Initial suggested retail prices for the CPC464 were GBP249.00/DM899.00 with a green screen and GBP359.00/DM1398.00 with a colour monitor. Following the introduction of the CPC6128 in late 1985, suggested retail prices for the CPC464 were cut by GBP50.00/DM100.00.

The Amstrad CPC 464 was one of the most successful computers in Europe. More than two million computers were sold.
