Modding is a slang expression that is derived from the verb "modify". Modding refers to the act of modifying a piece of hardware or software or anything else for that matter, to perform a function not originally conceived or intended by the designer. The term modding is often used within the computer game community, particularly in regard to creating new or altered content and sharing that via the web. It may also be applied to the overclocking of computers in order to increase the frequency at the which the CPU operates. Case modding is also a popular activity amongst many computer enthusiasts which involves the customization of a computer chassis or the installation of water cooling technology. In connection with automobiles, modding often refers to engine tuning, remapping of a vehicle's engine control unit or customization of the bodywork. From Wikipedia

Portable CPC

In May 2005 a modded version of probably a CPC464 was spotted on EBay, and sold for 68 Euro.

But this may also be a 6128 with a 464 keyboard, as not Tape drive and 2 disc drives seem included.

This mod makes the CPC resemble the Commodore SX-64, the portable version of the C64.

Yet "transportable" seems a more proper term.
