The original 64 was technically similar to its the VIC 20 but was certainly a superior machine - sound and colour capibilities were advanced for its time. It had a huge following - often referred to as the morris minor of computers

The 64c was a sleeker version of the 64a. Looks much more modern by todays standards.

The SX-64 was a portable version which included a 12cm (5 inch) colour screen missing the cassette port and the RF modulator outputs.
