Commodore Educator 64

1983 saw Commodore attempt to compete with the Apple II’s hold on the US education market with the Educator 64, essentially a C64 and “greenscale” monochrome monitor in a PET case. Schools preferred the all-in-one metal construction of the PET over the standard C64’s separate components, which could be easily damaged, vandalized or stolen. Unfortunately, schools did not prefer the Educator 64 to the wide range of software and hardware options the Apple IIe was able to offer, and it was only produced in limited quantities.
