Commodore 64

The Commodore 64 competed in the early eighties with the Sinclair Spectrum for dominance of the Home computer Market. Slightly more expensive the C64 boasted better graphical and Sound capabilities.


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.
