The VIC 20 was Commodore's first colour computer and was launched in 1980 and came with only 5KB of RAM. The VIC 20 came with an 8-bit CPU with a speed of 1.108404MHZ.
VIC 20 is an acronym for Video Interface Chip 20.
Unfortunately the VIC 20 along with the Atari 400 was well out of my price range when I first started to become aware of the home computer market.
My first dip into 8-bit home computers was the affordable ZX81 at a mere £69.95 which was considerably cheaper than the established VIC 20 at £299.99.
Without doubt the VIC 20 is a much superior computer than the ZX81 with its full keyboard, 16 colours and sound.
