Yes, MOS even made a special TED (the 8365) for use with other PAL-based 
TV-systems in South America.

Maybe... What I like about the 264 series is that it has the really nice 
BASIC 3.5 and maschine language monitor. It's a vast improvement over 
the BASIC V2 of the C64 and is only beaten by the BASIC 7 of the C128.

You can easily do graphics and sound in BASIC without resorting to PEEK 
and POKE and you can write simple (or not to simple) machine language 
programs (in hex or assembler) using the monitor.
