The Commodore 128 is a 3-in-one-computer: Its Z80A-processor was only used for CP/M and you can switch to the C64-mode by typing the basic command 'GO64'. The C128-Modus had some advantages including enhanced graphics (640*200), faster speed (which can also be used in the C64 mode with a trick) and the improved Basic 7.0.
There were three versions of the C128:
Looks a bit like the C64C. Also has a flat case and a good keyboard.
Like C128 but integrated in a PC-stylish case with a 5,25"-diskdrive
The keyboard is now a seperate part. You can also expand the video-ram
(standard: 16 KB) to get the enhanced video-modes of the C128DB.
Like the C128D but with the expanded video-ram of 64 KByte which allows
some programs to create higher resolutions.
CPU/Clock speed:MOS 8502/ca. 2 MHz - 8-Bit
RAM:128 (512) KB
Resolution:640*200 2 colours
Sound:3 channel Mono (SID)
Operating system:eigenes, compatibel with C64, CP/M 3.0
