The Commodore 64 was a revolutionary home computer. It served not only as a computer, but a gaming system as well. It supported high-resolution graphics and 3 complex sound channels, which made it popular for creating digitally produced music. It at first was only able to store data on its Commodore Datasette recorder, but a floppy drive was eventually released and was prone to failure. While more expensive at first, eventually the manufacturing cost dropped to $25.00 and the consumer price to $200, making it a very cheap alternative to the other computers on the market with more impressive specs.
The Commodore 64 was so popular that it still holds the record for the most sales of any computer in history with over 17 million copies!
