1978 - The CBM 4016


Click on image for enlarged picture

As far as we can tell the CBM 4016 was introduced to provide a slightly cheaper option to the CBM 4032 and had basically the same specification but included only 16K of RAM. Externally it was identical to the CBM 4032, however it did utilise the upgraded 74 key keyboard. It is not known if Commodore sold any in New Zealand, but some were obviously imported.
