First released in 1982, the Commodore 64 is touted as the “best selling single personal computer model of all time.” At $595, it featured a MOS Technology 6510 (1.02-MHz) processor, 64KB of memory, 20KB of ROM, a VIC-II graphics chip, and an SID sound chip. Videos after the jump.

Unlike computers that were distributed only through authorized dealers, Commodore also targeted department stores and toy stores. The unit could be plugged directly into a television set to play games, giving it much of the appeal of dedicated video game consoles like the Atari 2600
