The Commodore C65 is designed to be an entry-level microcomputer designed for the home or student market. The market in the 1990s may still have capacity for an 8-bit microcomputer priced below the 16/32-bit WinTel personal computer range. The Commodore C65 can also support and built on the existing market of microcomputer games and applications already developed in the 1980s, since the introduction of the PET, VIC-20 and C64 microcomputers.
