Commodore PC 40III                              (Image will come)

1984 - 1993.

Since the giant IBM entered the scene and set a new standard, there were many who made compatibles to their system. So did even Commodore Business Machines. Between 1984 and 1993, CBM presented a number of models based on Intel processors 8088 to 80386 with increasing degree of processing power and speed, RAM and hard drives, graphics, more slots, extra pre-processors, etc.

This machine is a 80286 of 10 Mhz with 2 disk drives, one at 5.25" and 720 KB and one at 3.5" at 1.44 MB, a hard drive of 40 MB, hercules and CGA video but no sound card.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
