Commodore 64 

FIRST:  Best-selling single computer model of all time

The Commodore 64 was released by Commodore Business Machines in 1982. It was first unveiled at the January 1982 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The Commodore 64, (commonly shortened to the C64), took its name from the 64 Kilobytes of RAM memory, and sold it for a price of $595 upon release. The C64 doubled as a video game console, as any game on a 5.25” floppy disk could be played by attaching a video game joystick to the right side.The Commodore 64 was named by the Guiness Book of World Records as the best-selling single computer of all time, selling an estimated 12.5-17 million units by the time of its discontinuation. The C64 was discontinued in April 1994, around the same time Commodore Business Machines filed for bankruptcy.
