Another was the Data20 64k VideoPAK. This sucker had it all: 64k of
RAM, 40 or 80 column display, and a built in terminal emulator. Way
If you purchased yours towards the end of Data-20's life, you got a
spreadsheet and word processor with it. Mine, alas, broke last fall.
It won't display 80 columns. I also lost the software for it. :-(

ANother cool Data-20 product was the Z-80 VideoPAK. This added a Z-80
cpu, and an 80-column display to the C-64. It was supposed to run
CP/M also. I also have one of these as well (thanks Doug!), but no
software. Still looking.
