DA4 77560
Commodore 128 serial number DA4 77560 made in West Germany.
The Commodore 128 was introduced in 1985. It has three separate operating systems: C64 mode running Basic 2.0, C128 mode with more memory, Basic 7.0 and an 80 column display option, and CP/M. This latter was the most widely used commercial operating system until this time. Together with the 128D, this was probably the best 8 bit computer ever. Unfortunately all this came just as a new generation of computers running MS-DOS came onto the market and the 128 was a flop.
