Amstrad CPC 464 Plus
The CPC 464plus model was intended as "more sophisticated and stylish" replacements for the CPC464. The 464plus has 64KB RAM and a cassette tape drive.
The plus range is not equipped with an on-board ROM, and thus the 464plus and the 6128plus do not contain a firmware. Instead, Amstrad provided the firmware for both models via the ROM extension facility, contained on the included Burnin' Rubber and Locomotive BASIC cartridge. This resulted in reduced hardware localization cost (only some select key caps and case labels had to be localized) with the added benefit of a rudimentary copy protection mechanism (without a firmware present, the machine itself could not copy a game cartridge's content).
Our CPC 464 is in excellent condition and has the Serial No: 532-0909050.
