Commodore C2N Datasette

As disk drives were quite expensive, Commodore needed to find a way to have a storage medium alongside its computers that was cheap, inline with its motto “Computers for the masses, not for the classes!”

The Datasettes proved to be just the thing (and also the slowest means of data transfer every made).  The Commodore Datasette are just like the C64 etched into our collective memories as everyone who owned a Commodore 64, had a Datasette.

This particular Datasette, the C2N, was used alongside the PET computer range (allowing PET owners for a cheaper means of data storage than the pricey 2031 disk drives).
