I think it's just a Schneider 464 that's been painted to make it look like a prototype. The wavy sticker above the main keys is a bit of a giveaway not to mention the pastic behind the cassette perspex is still grey.  :-X

True (bis). I was just mentioning it to show it's not new/mint, probably, lovely as it looks.

The matching PSU is also a giveaway. Even if the prototype had a PSU rather than a monitor, it'd have had a UK power plug on the end!

I saw a white CPC 464 prototype once, It was for sale on a market stall for £90 and it looked lovely, but it was 1986ish and I already had one at home so did not even think of buying it. Damn if only I had.

Still have the same flaws tho, the Obvious grey plastic on the tape door, and the oh too dark keyboard.


I wish I'd bought the one I saw LOL. nearly 30 years later I have regret... Ooops!

It looks nice, like a bar of white chocolate. ;D

It's funny how some Amiga owners are painting their Amigas black and here we have someone painting their CPC white or is it really white plastic?.

the *real* white ones were white/cream plastic with cream and grey keyboards. and looked *really* very nice. A real one now however will be extremely expensive.

That fake proto CPC really does look good. If I ever had a real CPC again i'd want it to look like that.

Most of his other listings are sensibly priced but then there are a few which have crazy prices.  I don't get it.

Saying that he does have some Ocean original games priced very high, like Donkey Kong. I know this is rare on the CPC but I don't follow Spectrum. Chances are it could be though?

..and he still hasn't got back to me about the shipping costs to Ireland  :laugh:

I wonder if he decided to repaint them because the plastics were getting yellowed?  :laugh: The dark grey plastics  ???

Saw this too. The battery has bleeded out and the boot process is hanging, probably a defective floppy. I like those devices, they're like spiritual successors of the CPCs.
