(Images are not of the actual items)

A RAM based expansion for the Commodore 64/128 the RAMLink gives the ultimate in RAMdisk speed as it connects via the Commodore's expansion port and not the serial iec port.

This RAMLink has 4MB RAM (out of 16MB possible), power supply, RL Utilities Disk, a copy of the manual, the timing clip (necessary to work with C64 models), and the cable for the back-up battery (battery not included). A battery backup unit can be purchased inexpensively to keep the memory contents intact when cycling power or during power outages. RAMLink also has its own built-in JiffyDOS expansion for the host computer.

One of the best “power-up” additions for Commodore BBS sysops or GEOS power users.

A Commodore 128DCR Computer

Commodore 128DCRThe Commodore 128D the next generation of the Commodore 64. Not only capable of running as a Commodore 64, it also has an expanded 128 mode with expanded BASIC and 80-column capabilities.

  • 128K of RAM
  • an 8502 processor (similar to the 6510 the Commodore 64, but capable of 2MHz speed)
  • a Z80 processor
  • a VIC-II graphics chip for 40-column color graphics, sprites, etc.
  • a 6568 graphics chip capable of 80-column color hi-res graphics. (In the 128D there is a full 64K of video ram allowing for better hi-res capabilities from the chip.)
