Techopedia explains Commodore 128

The Commodore 128 was pursued by Commodore to increase compatibility and versatility, in the aftermath of the departure of Jack Tramiel for Atari months earlier. The Commodore had to compete with the Atari ST line. To that end, under lead engineer Bill Herd, Commodore produced something that was more versatile and capable than the original 64, and more stylish as well.
