As a small “briefcase” computer, the Commodore SX-64 did not sell especially well. Some problems included various types of incompatibilities, for example, a lack of a port to power printers without their own AC power supplies. The small screen was also a factor, as it made it difficult to enjoy the graphics pioneering happening at the time, for example, in the “Ghostbusters” Activision game demonstrated on a Commodore 64 desktop computer by David Crane on PBS in 1985. The default screen color of the SX-64 was also different than that of the standard Commodore 64, which caused some issues with various pieces of software.
The Commodore SX-64 was succeeded by designs such as the Commodore LCD, an unreleased prototype.
