Keep saving your pennies and one day, this could be yours!


Just look at those specs would ya?
Bring back memories for anyone?

I remember a friend of mine had one back in 1983 and his next door neighbor had an Apple.
The (PC/C64 vs Apple) fight had already begun...even back then!

Those never existed, neither did 486DXs. You're all on drugs.

My parents bought me a C16 for my birthday because it was a fraction of the price of a C64 but could be upgraded cheaply with an add-on card to the same spec as a C64. The idea was that I had the C16 for my birthday and in a couple of months it would be Christmas so I could get the upgrade then...but in that time Commodore had figured out what people were doing and withdrawn the add-on cards so I never got that C64.
