"The Commodore 64. Under $300.

You can't buy a better computer at twice the price."

@cypnk I wanted one so bad. Got to play on it at a friend’s house. Summer Olympics were amazing.

@cypnk Of course, the Atari 800xl was out by then, literally a better computer at maybe $499?

@mdhughes Close call. Of course, they'll hype their own product, but I don't know if they were on par at the exact same time

The monitor is a standard Sony TV, so this was even before Commodore started selling their own monitors, I think
