1977: The personal computer became a consumer appliance rather than just a hobbyist homebrew contraption at the First West Coast Computer Faire, April 15, 1977. Here 3 consumer computers were announced that were packaged for immediate use. Clockwise from the lower left are the Radio Shack TRS-80, the Apple II, and the Commodore PET. The best seller was the Apple II (depicted in the 1999 TV movie Pirates of Silicon Valley).

The Commodore PET 200 is a rebadged version of the Commodore 8032-SK which is itself the same model as the 8032 with a rounded shape design and a separate keyboard. This design was used later on the CBM-II series computers.
