In the early 1980s, Commodore produced two new models of the C64 for North American schools: the PET 64 (Educator 64-1) and the Educator 64-2. Both computers were standard C64s but with a PET case. They were unrelated to the earlier Teachers' PET, which was a real PET 2001-8N!
The PET 64, also known as the CBM 4064 or Educator 64-1, included a PET 4000 style black-and-white monitor with an internal speaker. Later models had a colored screen. The PET 64 came supplied with an adapted C64 KERNAL. With its metal case, it weighed almost 20 kg.
The Educator 64-2 had a green screen monitor with a regular C64 KERNAL that displayed the standard C64 boot screen. It featured a headphone jack and an internal speaker with a volume control. The case on most Educator 64-2s was plastic.
Other differences against the C64
- No information about changing the text colour on the number keys.
- The control ports for the joysticks are in front of the keyboard.
- The other ports are on the right-hand side of the case.
