For sale
Commodore PET 2001-8C.

General info
The Commodore PET 2001 is an iconic 8-bit home computer, one of the very first highly successful mass produced microcomputer products. The Commodore PET 2001 was first shown and sold to the public at the Winter CES in January 1977 and the first 100 units were shipped in October. The original PET 2001 includes either 4 KB or 8 KB of RAM and is essentially a single board 6502 based computer with discrete logic driving a small built-in monochrome (white/blue-ish character) monitor and cassette recorder, enclosed in a sheet metal case. Although the machine was moderately successful, there were frequent complaints about the tiny calculator-like keyboard, often referred to as a chiclet keyboard, because the keys resembled the chewing gum it was named after. The Commodore PET 2001 marks Commodore's first launch of a personal computer aimed at a consumer market. Along with the Apple II and the Tandy Radio Shack TRS-80, Byte magazine referred to these as the "1977 Trinity" of personal computing. The Commodore PET 2001 is the only one with an all-in-one design, directly ready for use. It's also the only one with a sophisticated BASIC and screen editor, as well as lowercase letters.

With this early microcomputer of a well known brand in your office, you show to your customers (and employees) that you are actually passionate about information technology.  You show that you are experienced in your field of work and that your business has years of history behind it. You are looking here at an unique opportunity to obtain a conversation piece your customers will love to see and talk about.
