Commodore 1540 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (253 words)
Because of the low price of both the VIC-20 and the 1540, this combination was the first computer with a disk drive to be offered on the US market for under $1,000, although the combination of the Commodore 64 and 1541 would prove more enduring.
The better-known 1541 was mechanically and electronically identical to the 1540 but had a revised ROM that permitted it to work with the C64 by slowing the drive down slightly.
The 1540 is relatively rare because the C64 followed close on the heels of the VIC-20, so the 1540 was quickly discontinued.
