Commodore SuperPet (SP9000)
The Commodore SuperPET, also known as the SP9000, was developed with the University of Waterloo of Ontario, Canada.
It runs on two processors, the MOS 6502, and the Motorola 6809, which can both access the same addresses, but are independent of the Kernal ROM.
The machine has the basic ROM 4.0, 96K of RAM. It originally retailed for $2000.
Aimed at the University and programming communities, the machine carried a true RS232 interface, allowing academics and developers to upload their work at home to an IBM mainframe.
The computer starts with a menu of powerful programs for machine language, APL development package, basic development, text editor, fortran and pascal.
