The classic Commodore 64 was one of the most successful home computers in the world selling around 17 million units between 1982 to 1993 !
There were several versions of the C64, from the original "Bull Nosed" style through to the later re-styled version and even an executive portable version.
The C64 features 64 kilobytes of RAM with sound and graphics performance that were superior to IBM-compatible computers of that time. Part of its success was due to the fact that it was sold in retail stores instead of electronics stores, and that Commodore produced many of its parts in-house to control supplies and cost.
Approximately 10,000 commercial software titles were made for the Commodore 64 including development tools, office applications, and games. The machine is also credited with popularizing the computer demo scene. The Commodore 64 is still used today by computer hobbyists, and emulators allow anyone with a modern computer to run these programs on their desktop.
