    I have a VIC 20 in original box with books and what not I found at a thrift shop. :)
    Works like a champ, but the video cable broke on me.

    Who else has what?

    I have an old 5.25" drive that I'm toying with turning into a USB floppy drive in an external CD-ROM enclosure. But that's the closest I've ever gotten to a Commie.

    I have been thinking about looking for an old Apple IIC to play with.

    we have some type of tandy computer in the basement. it's got a 5.25" floppy drive, the true "floppy" imo.
    a long time ago we upgraded the ram in it to 512k, so we could run wheel of fortune

    my dad still uses it to type letters on a weekly basis

    8 inch floppy. 360K of data. I remember hooking a tape recorder up to save data.

    I have not looked at bios code in years. Is the tape function calls still in the current bios?

    I have a C=128 in its original box with the disk drive, also in the original box.

    I bought them in 2000 or 2001 for $30. :cool:
