The Commodore 700 series featured the same hardware basis as the 600 series but had a built-in tilt-and-swivel monochrome 12" monitor, a detachable keyboard and housing for two 5.25" floppy drives.

It was said that the 5/6/700 cases were designed by Porsche, not the more familiar Porsche auto factory, but the separate Porsche Design firm.

Three version were also available:
710 (CBM 128/80 in USA): 128 KB RAM
720 (CBM 256/80): 256 KB RAM
730 (CBMX 256/80): 256 KB RAM and coprocessor

Both versions could be purchased with a built-in dual floppy disk drive which was compatible with the external 8250 dual drive unit.
