A Look Back on the C-64 (Video)

When I think about my old Commodore 64, all kinds of good memories suddenly pop in my mind. Released in 1982, the C64 was a beast. It featured a 1.02MHz processor, 64Ks of memory and 20Ks of ROM, all of this for around $600. This may probably seem very expensive to some of you guys right now, but back then, the C64 was considered as insanely cheap. When I think that companies such as Dell are currently offering full systems for under $400 and that $100 $150 laptops are soon going to appear on the market, it just makes me want to cry! Here's a short video presenting my old childhood friend.
