For sale
Commodore SX-64.

General info
The Commodore SX-64 is a portable version of the popular 1980's Commodore 64 home computer and the first full color portable computer. The SX-64 features a built-in five inch monitor (Commodore changed default screen color to blue text on a white background for improved readability) and a 1541 floppy drive. The computer can be carried by its sturdy handle, which doubles as an adjustable stand. Apart from the lack of a RF antenna output and cassette recorder interface, the SX-64 is basically a complete all-in-one C64 set. The SX-64 also has a composite video & audio output for connecting an external monitor.

- The keyboard locked onto the computer fine.

N.B.: the bands and distortions on the screen at the pictures result from the difference between the vertical refresh rate of the monitor and the shutter rate of the camera. In reality you don't see this.
