Pardon me for stepping in here...

If you look at the motherboard of an American 128D, it says 128DCR.  The CR 
in this case stands for "cost reduced", as there were some changes made to 
the design to cut costs.  In other countries, there are 128Ds with plastic 
cases that house a plain old 128 motherboard and a 1571 controller board, 
instead of the all-in-one design we got (most of these also had a cooling 
fan built-in from the factory).
