is an 8-bit home computer. It was made by Commodore Business Machines, with 5 KB RAM and a MOS 6502 CPU. The machine's external design was later used by the Commodore 64
and C16. The VIC-20
was released in Japan in 1980, and in the U.S. and Europe in 1981, roughly three years after Commodore's first personal computer, the PET. The VIC-20
was the first microcomputer to sell one million units.
The VC 20 is the model sold in Germany and is identical to other Vics technically, just the name badge is different, to avoid ambiguous pronunciation.
