Commodore SX-64 First Portable PC - by Erik Schubach


The Real Thing
 The Commodore SX-64, also known as the Executive 64, or VIP-64 in Europe, is a portable, briefcase/suitcase-size "luggable" version of the popular Commodore 64 home computer and holds the distinction of being the first full-color portable computer.
The SX-64 features a built-in five-inch composite monitor and a built-in 1541 floppy drive. It weighs 10.5 kg (23lb). The machine is carried by its sturdy handle, which doubles as an adjustable stand. It was announced in January 1983 and released a year later, at US$ 995.

O Commodore SX-64, também conhecido como Executive ou VIP-64 em outros países, foi um dos primeiros computadores pessoais portáteis. Dobrável, ele se transformava em uma maleta de 10 quilos (?!?) e trazia o sistema operacional Commodore Basic 2.0. Quando foi lançado, em 1984, o computador custava 995 dólares. Foi também o primeiro portátil a ter uma tela colorida, de 5 polegadas.
