CBM 700 Series

The Commodore 700 series featured the same hardware basis as the 600 series but had a built-in tilt-and-swivel monochrome 12" monitor, a detachable keyboard and housing for two 5.25" floppy drives.

It was said that the 5/6/700 cases were designed by Porsche, not the more familiar Porsche auto factory, but the separate Porsche Design firm.

Three version were also available:
• 710 (CBM 128/80 in USA): 128 KB RAM
• 720 (CBM 256/80): 256 KB RAM
• 730 (CBMX 256/80): 256 KB RAM and coprocessor

Both versions could be purchased with a built-in dual floppy disk drive which was compatible with the external 8250 dual drive unit.

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).

Special thanks to Susan Griffiths who donated us this console !


Computers in the CBM-II series was never sold with integrated floppy drives. But probably it was planned for before at a early stage.

The CBM/PET 8296D that was using similar "housing" however, was sold with integrated 8250 duel floppy drive .
