The first C64 looks like the VIC20 on the outside, with the convenient keyboard and small desktop required. Inside the improved VIC video chip, the 64K memory and the SID soundchip made it the most popular hobbycomputer in the eighties.
In May 1983 I wrote a review of the C64 for Radio Bulletin.
This C64 has Speeddos builtin, with the corresponding diskdrive connected via the IEC and a special parallel cable. Speeddos is not that faster, but it feels much more responsive.
A very early C64 production model: serial 00088 made in Germany with the cpu baord made in Hongkong.This one has the limited video connector with only composite video. In perfect working order, thanks to Anton Muller!
With the C64 come many diskdrives...
