The first Color Computer, it was first sold in 1980 and originally had only Color BASIC, 4Kb of memory, 32-column screen, and a chiklet keyboard. It was based on a design originally from Motorola. It used a .89MHz MC6809E. A compact cassette recorder or Program Paks were used. Later versions came with 16Kb/32Kb/64Kb and Extended Color BASIC, required environment to handle disk drives.
