Vintage 1979 Commodore CBM 8096. The world's first personal computer

Vintage (1979) and very scarce Commodore CBM 8096. The world's first personal computer made in the USA with a body designed by Porsche! In fully working order and super rare, this Commodore CBM 8096 is in fantastic condition for her age. As the Center for Computer History describes the CBM 8096: earning a special place in the history of micro-computers, the Commodore 8096 was one of the biggest sellers in the 1979 - 1980 market when computers were aimed at both the home and business market.

Clearly the best looking computer ever made, its round chassis was designed by Porche! The round chassis was introduced on some 8032 models and was contined on in the B and P Series Commodore PET and PET II II lines. The Commodore CBM 8096 was a 1979 computer system with a monitor, keyboard, internal power-supply, disk drives and a motherboard. The motherboard had a MOS 6502 processor, RAM / ROM memory, MOS 6545 video-chip, MOS 6520 PIA and a MOS 6522 VIA. The 8096 is an example of the first generation of CBM computers from Commodore.

In stead of sheet-metal this series is made of plastic. There is much more attention for the look of the computer.

The 80 in the model number stands for 80 columns of text on the screen and the 96 stands for 96 kbyte RAM memory. The Commodore CBM 8096 is quite rare, an 8032 with a factory-installed 64K RAM expansion.

Only the factory-installed 8000's have the special front plate. The RAM expansion was installed above the motherboard, sitting on 4 risers. The picture shows a view of the CBM 8096 running but without disc drives, we have no program discs to run on it.
