Comments:

This computer practically didn´t sale because it was sustituted in few months by CPC 6128, only 10.000 units were made, the rumours indicate that at the same time Alan Sugar, president and CEO of Amstrad, presents the CPC 664 to the public, he show in a private room to journalists the CPC 6128. Alan Sugar presents it with this words "The CPC 664 was died, long life to CPC 6128".
