The Amstrad CPC 464 (short for Colour Personal Computer) was an 8-bit computer produced by Amstrad in the mid to late 80’s. It was designed to compete with the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
It used a CPU based on the Zilog Z80A CPU, with either 64 or 128 KB of RAM.
The base unit integrated the computer itself, the keyboard and a cassette tape or 3″ (not 3.5″) floppy disk.
The main units were only sold bundled with either a colour or monochrome monitor that doubles as the main unit’s power supply.
The machine featured a BASIC interpreter based on Locomotive Basic for the Z80 in ROM.
