Commodore SX-64 computer3D Model
The Commodore SX-64 is a portable (“suitcase”) version of one of the most popular computers of the 1980s, i.e., the Commodore C64. It is also the first portable computer equipped with a colour screen (a 5-inch CRT monitor). It has 64 kB of built-in operating memory. As it was to serve people who travelled frequently, it was advertised in the US with the slogan “designed for the movers of this word”.
Suitcase resembling, weighting ca 10 kg was lighter and smaller than the computers produced at the time. The model, however, does not have a built-in battery, which in fact prevents the device from being used while travelling. In contrast to the Commodore 64, it has only one built-in 5.25-inch floppy disk drive, yet its ports allow connection of peripherals such as a tape recorder, audio-video devices, or an external monitor.
