Quote from: StealthGary on 15:50, 23 May 22As for why the 464 Plus even exists... well, tbh I could ask why the Plus range existed at all, surely Amstrad would have been better off releasing a full 16-bit machine to compete with the Amiga & ST?? From my perspective we simply couldn't afford at 6128 Plus when I was a kid. I think the choice was between a 6128 Plus with a monochrome monitor, or a 464 Plus with a colour monitor. I went for the 464 thinking that I could simply add an external disk drive at a later date while upgrading the monitor would be more tricky - and while the 6128 had the extra memory, very few games made use of it. I mean... why would you alienate a huge part of the market as a game developer?Come to that, I've never understood why anyone bought the monochrome or green screen monitors... perhaps if business was your only use-case I guess.

Quote from: StealthGary on 01:36, 25 May 22Oh man... now I just have more and more to consider!I didn't realise the CM14 had a better picture, or that it was stereo while the 644 is mono. The plus has an improved sound chip too, right? Damn... I'd all but settled on a 6128, but now I'm hankering more for a plus.Hmmm... I think I'm just going to find myself checking ebay and facebook every day, waiting for that golden opportunity that's too good to miss... and if I get bored waiting I'll pick up a good 6128 deal and make do!
