Commodore PC 1

The Commodore PC Compatible Systems are a series of IBM PC compatible personal computers introduced in 1984 by home computer manufacturer Commodore Business Machines.

Incompatible with Commodore's earlier Commodore 64 and Amiga architectures, they were generally regarded as good, usable workhorse PCs with nothing spectacular, but the established name Commodore was seen as a competitive asset.

In 1984, Commodore signed a deal with Intel to produce as a second source the Intel 8088 CPU used in the IBM PC, along with a license to manufacture a computer based on the Dynalogic Hyperion.
