The Commodore 64 was designed to be connected to a television display and did not come with a monitor, although one could be purchased separately. Commodore explicitly designed the machine for low-budget personal use, marketing it to retail stores instead of electronics vendors. The price for the Commodore 64 was originally set at $595 US Dollars in 1982, already low compared to other computers, and rapidly dropped during the next several years. The low cost of the Commodore 64 eventually drove Timex, Texas Instruments, and other competitors out of the computer marketplace; the low profit margin forced stores to try and make money by selling peripherals such as printers, disk drives and joysticks.
