One Lovely Vintage Computing Bundle

commodore vic 20 sinclair zx81 vintage computersOne Sinclair ZX81 and one Commodore VIC 20 in their respective (and respected) boxes can be yours, provided of course you try your luck with this vintage computing eBay auction and are a resident of the UK. Both micros are -according to the seller, that is- in excellent working condition and come with all necessary bits and even a host of extras, such the ZX81 RAM-pack, a Sinclair printer, and the Commodore 1530 datassette.

I was GUTTED. Here's some pics: http://flic.kr/p/8tfz85 http://flic.kr/p/8tcymT http://flic.kr/p/8tfy5N http://flic.kr/p/8tcxXk I hope you can feel my pain!

  4. Gutted was the least you could feel... I mean, that's just to much retro beauty left to fend off for itself in the wild, the WWF should have intervened. 't was a fantastic collection. Well, dear Waxer, at least you got the pictures and the memories. Oh, and maybe -just maybe- a bit of emulation might be helpful.

  5. Thanks for the counselling Gnome! Yep, I still can't walk past old kit at bootsales without maybe just thinking I could get it home without the boss seeing!

  6. I on the other hand can have -roughly- what I want provided, it's not in the living room. Or the bedroom. Well, it can be in a cupboard really...
