Personal Experience

I bought a Commodore 64 in 1983 once i felt that i had started to out grow my ZX Spectrum. The Commodore 64 felt altogether different and more professional than my other computers, the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum. This was mainly due to its proper keyboard, better graphics resolution, colours and sound.

Unfortunately I sold my beloved Commodore 64 way back in the mid 80s but i have recently been successful in obtaining a new one which is in pretty good condition.
