Commodore PET 2001 Oldest Known Promotional Brochure

Because of the age and amount of information in this brochure, we have converted it to text so you can read it easier.  It is on our HISTORY tab, under PET BROCHURE. If you have anything of equivalent age or older, please contact us.  This document was given to commodore.ca by Austin Hook of Canada's (and possibly North America's) first retail computer store.  I believe the document is from 1977 or 1978 because

  1. it is very low quality
  2. shows a Commodore PET 2001 with chiclet keboard
  3. shows a price of US$999 for the PET 2001
  4. shows only original PET cassette, and 2020 printer

Commodore BASIC Explanation

Commodore PET 2001 Chiclet Keyboard

With numeric keypad! Pretty damn cool for 1977. This keyboard was quickly changed to the common ful size keyboard.
