The Schneider CPC 464 was an Amstrad CPC 464 that was re-branded and sold in Germany through "Schneider Computer Division".

The other differences between the Amstrad & Schneider CPCs were:

  • The green & red keys on the Amstrad were coloured grey on the Schneider;
  • The Schneider had internal metal shielding in order to comply with German EM emissions regulations;
  • Instead of PCB edge connectors for the expansion the Schneider had micro ribbon connectors (again to cut down on EM emissions).
