i remember these from elementary school. the school only had 1. later on we got a bunch of apple 2’s and played oregon trail. but early on, this was it. 1 computer, 500 kids. didn’t realize commodore made it.
The first computer I ever used (besides TI programmable calculators) ! Was pretty popular in France because its name means ‘fart’.
We had 1 in a school of over 1,200. Only the advanced math students were allowed to touch it so the likely hood of me getting a go were nil or less.
Is that a real book or a Photoshop job? If it’s a book I want it. (Google was no help finding it.)
…We had a guy locally who would take PETs and upgrade them to C-64s. Required quite a bit of case modding, but at least you had a computer that *looked* like what we expected a computer to look like.
It looks like that computer that the Enterprise crew brought down with them to the planet that looked exactly like Earth, but without clouds, and all the grownups got the blue-green herpes and the kids were all bonk-bonk on the head, bonk-bonk, bonk-bonk!
