The Commodore 64 was a combination main computer system and keyboard designed for the home market in the early 1980’s. The system had a monitor and floppy drive as optional peripherals. It was possible to connect to an analog TV for use as a monitor. It allowed families to have a shared computer for simple home programs and games. Most software was on 5.25” floppy disks. It had a built-in basic interpreter that offered the ability to write programs.
The computer system and keyboard are contained in a single case.
The system has ports for a Commodore monitor with audio, composite video out, controllers (joysticks), cassette interface and serial output. There are slots for connection of cartridges that contained programs.
