Upgraded 464+, 6218+, cpc 464, 3x cpc 6128 & a GX4000

This gives me all 4 crtc types.

0,1 & 2 in the 6128s
3 in the plusses (obviously)
4 in the cost down 464

I can always find a way to watch any demo!

My Amstrad portfolio is still small since I started collecting in September.

I own 1 x 6128 and 1 x 6128 plus paired with 2 x Tomahawk/Pacman joysticks.

Since this is rapidly turning into a 'What Amstrads do I own' thread I may as well chip in.

I have no 464s, but I do have...

- 6128 Plus with MotherX4, X-Mem, M4 board, C4CPC, GoTek HxC and a 'Bryce' USB mouse adapter
- 6128 that's been in pieces for 15 years that I must put back together one day (the original CPC that we got for Xmas 1991)
- Broken GX4000 that I bought untested from eBay around 15 years ago for a tenner - at least I got two control pads and a Burning Rubber cart out of it! (actually, no idea what I've done with those control pads)

Hopefully only the ram needs replacing.

Good for you guys, remembering what you have :D


I *think* I have a couple (at least) of 464s (a tall-key on and a cost-down one, probably a second of the later versions as well), a couple of 664s (one needs a new membrane...), I think I have a 472 somewhere, plus 2 6128s and a Schneider 6128 which is my daily driver. A GX, of course, at least 1 464 Plus and a 6128 Plus. NC100, NC200, Penpad ;D

I have a button on my desk and it's bigger than yours!  :P

Hi
In the end i never got it. The tracking number he gave kept showing as not picked up and after a few days of this i emailed him and he admitted he could not find it anymore and that he had another he would send with a £5 discount. I declined the offer so now i am back to the status quo.
Here is his original email - i just don't get it.

sorry about this.

My printer has been playing up so I went to the local library to print off the Hermes parcel label.
However, despite an extensive search I can not find the computer.

I have the same computer model (Again untested) I can send to you tomorrow.

As a goodwill gesture I will issue you a partial refund of £5 via Paypal.

Hope this okay with you?

Sorry once again.

Very questionable. How do you lose a 464 that you took pictures of just days before?

In the sellers defense, Hermes are awful and are known for randomly losing parcels.
