Successor: Commodore CBM-II

In 1979, Commodore replaced the original PET 2001 with an improved model known as the 2001-N (the N was short for "New").

The new machine used a standard green-phosphor monitor in place of the light blue in the original 2001. It now had a conventional, full-sized keyboard and no longer sported the built-in cassette recorder.
