Commodore 64

An early personal computer from Commodore Business Machines. Introduced in 1982, the Commodore 64 (for 64K of RAM) was one of the best-selling machinees in the embryonic days of personal computers. Following the VIC-20, which used the same case, only white instead of beige, the Commodore 64's lower price (USD $595) helped it outsell its higher-priced competitors such as the IBM PC, Apple II and Atari computers. See Commodore PET, VIC-20 and Commodore.

This is the main unit with a 300 bps analog modem plugged into the back, a drive for 170KB floppies and a tape cassette. The floppy drive weighed almost 10 pounds. Like most personal computers of that era, the BASIC programming language was built in. See BASIC.
