** The SID chip is so awesome that the metal band MachinaeSupremacy relies on it for their sound.

** The C128 suffered from its own excellence: although it was superior in several ways, it boasted something like 99.6% backwards compatibility with the C64, so software companies saw no point in producing software for the C128's advanced features and leaving behind the C64 market. Manufacturers hadn't yet gotten the hang of planned obsolescence. The Amiga also came out not much longer after the 128, so computer enthusiasts flocked to that platform instead.

Manufacturers hadn't yet gotten the hang of planned obsolescence. The 128 supported CP/M, but it was well past its prime in 1985. The Amiga also came out not much longer after the 128, so computer enthusiasts flocked to that platform instead.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The machine was eclipsed by [[IBMPersonalComputer PCs]] and, to a lesser extent, [[AppleMacintosh Macs]] in the computer market and by the NintendoEntertainmentSystem on the gaming front in America during the latter half of the '80s but was still hugely popular overseas, only being discontinued when Commodore itself imploded in 1994.
