Note This model was released to avoid a Spanish tax for any computer with 64kb or less memory that didn't have a Spanish keyboard. Then was released a enhanced CPC with a memory of 72kb and without a specific Spanish keyboard version. But shortly after that, a new law was approved and avery computers sold in Spain must have a Spanish keyboard. So there are two version of the 472, one with the English keyboard and the other with the Spanish one.

On the web Amstrad Museum there are some info about the CPC-472
