The VIC-20 is an 8-bit home computer produced by Commodore Business Machines. It was initially released in Japan in 1980 as a trial, and was later released in the U.S. and Europe in 1981, roughly three years after Commodore's first personal computer, the PET. The VIC-20 was aimed at the personal and hobby end of the market. It was the first microcomputer to sell one million units.
It features 5K RAM and a MOS 6502 CPU. The machine's keyboard-sized unit external design was later used by the Commodore 64 and C16.
This is a boxed unit and comes complete with power supply unit, Commodore C2N Datasette Unit Model 1530 boxed with instructions, 16K Rampack (cost at the time £44.95) and many Vic 20 games (to be catalogued separately).
Our unit very kindly donated by Mr Tony Decore; it has a serial number WGB 122360 and was purchased on the 14th May 1983.
