Post about old computers that...-c-sx-64_portable.jpg

Commodore Business Machines introduced the Commodore 64 computer in January 1982 at a price of $595. This was an enhancement of the earlier VIC 20 with 64K RAM and a 6510 processor. This machine went on to become the best selling computer of all time, lasting until 1993 and selling 17 to 22 million units. Commodore announced the above SX-64 portable version of the Commodore 64 in January 1983. This was the first portable computer on the market with a color display, and was essentially identical to the regular C64 except for the lack of a cassette interface. In 1986 the GEOS operating system (for Graphic Environment Operating System) was released for the Commodore 64, which incredibly gave the 64K machine a GUI like the Macintosh and Amiga.


I still have one of these Sx-64's in perfect running condition !

Apparently we had a VIC 20 before the Commodore, but (obviously) with me only being born in '85, I don't remember the VIC at all.. We had the Commodore a good few years later, somewhere around the early/mid '90s if I remember correctly.

My first PC (I think it was 1985) was an Amstrad CPC 464 (in my sig) with a monitor that could display 27 colours! It ran on a 4MHz CPU and 64kB RAM (I remember upgrading to 576kB and was sooo excited!) It also had a built in cassette tape for loading games. All my friends had commodore 64's so I was a bit of a legend having the first external floppy drive.
