The first Commodore PET model was launched in 1977. It was a popular machine and found many admirers, from educational use, hobbyists, and some business users. The first machines only had 4K of RAM, mine has 8K, but even this was very limiting so several third-party memory expansion boards were available to take the memory up to 32K.
The machines we have available are the Commodore PET 2000 and 3000 series which were released in 1979 and featured the full size keyboard.
We also have a number of other models of Commodore PET ... Please feel free to enquire.
If you want to create a low-tack vinyl to cover up the branding, the black label on the front panel is 365mm wide at the top and 382mm at the bottom. It is 49mm high. The label has slightly rounded corners at the top and angled sides. We would suggest creating a slightly oversized label to cover it. There is a 'face-on' image of the PET as one of the secondary images above.
You MUST use LOW-TACK vinyl. This machine is quite rare and any damage to the existing label will be charged in full.
If you wish to have its accompanying disk drive, the dimensions of that are 38w x 37d x 18h.

Minimum Order Charge
We do have a minimum order charge of £50 (excluding delivery) for all hires. This is to cover the time involved in organising and dispatching a single small item. Sorry :-(

Multiple Items & Job Lots
If you're looking to fit out an entire set and need many items, we are happy to quote a discounted rate based on the quantity of items.
The term dry hire means to hire an item without having a technician supplied to support it. Most of our small items are available to dry hire, but some of the more complicated equipment that require specialist knowledge are not. In these cases we will deliver the item(s) personally and set them up for you. Please call us for a quotation based on the hire period and location.
