Commodore 128: The Full Monty

commodore 128c128Released in 1985, the Commodore 128 (a.k.a. C128) was the last 8-bit machine produced by Commodore. It also is fully compatible with the C64, features 128 whole kbytes of RAM and a C128 mode, a redesigned and expanded keyboard, a slightly faster processor, RGB-out and an extra Z80 thrown in for CP/M compatibility. Impressive, right? That's three machines in one. Anyway. Find out more about it here and here.

For a complete C128 system though, try this excellently priced and truly massive Commodore 128 eBay auction. Besides the boxed computer, you'll also be getting two 1541 disc drives, a cassette deck, a mouse, a modem, a joystick, manuals, leads and a rich and very impressive selection of software. Seller ships only within the US. The C128, on its own, usually sells for 50-60$, mind you.


  1. That would fill up our whole server room here at the office.. hehe

  2. Indeed, but it's a 3-in-1 machine, so, i guess, it might be worth the space of a keyboard or something.
