I am so happy to bring to you this carefully crafted Buyer's Guide. The guide
Every item listed below is for your Commodore PET, VIC-20, C64, C64c, SX-64, Plus/4,
c128 or c128D. And every product is commercially available today, or coming soon.
That means that while you browse this guide, if you see something cool you know
you can order it and have one for yourself.
The products are grouped into 12 categories to help you find that piece you've
always wanted to expand your Commodore without needing to worry about who makes it
or who sells it.
It is my goal to have a feature page detailing each product, or product family,
found below. This describes the primary function and use of the product,
shows up–close photographs, lists the models of Commodore it is compatible with
and links to the product's homepage and documentation. It also lists prices and
gives clear instructions about how you can order it. The feature pages open up
comments for the community to leave reviews, and to ask and answer questions.
This icon, ☆ indicates which items in the guide have a feature page
available. There are currently 20 feature pages available and I'm
adding new ones as quickly as I can. Follow my progress on twitter, hashtag
