Pictures of my Commodore PET 3032

I bought this PET 3032 from a friend (hi Jakov!) in February 2002 for 300 kronor (about 32 euros), coupled with a disk drive. As all PET computers it's a really big piece of metal, but it is also a fun thing to own, especially since it is a bit "unique" in some ways. Unfortunately, I found that it took up too much space, and I never used it, so I gave it away to Anders in 2008.

The computer is, unlike most of the other Commodore computers I have, made in the USA, and has serial number 1323517.

Besides the Swedish made BASIC extension there is another thing that makes the machine a bit "unique", and that is it having Swedish characters. I guess that most PET computers sold in Sweden did have it, but internationally speaking it probably isn't as common :-) The placement is a bit odd, it seems that they just replaced the original keys for [\] so that they wouldn't have to bother re-doing the ROM keymap.
