    Man, I loved my A500. Was the 7th PC I bought, started out on a Sinclair ZX with 16k ram. Then a VIC-20, an Apple II, C-64, SX-64, c-128, then that badass A500. Commodore, in the day, kicked IBM and Apple's ass. Too bad they lost on the marketing end of it.

      Considering Mac only has about a 12% market share, I don't think that theory holds up.

        Still have all the Atari 400/800 stuff from when I was in jr high. My father still has his TRS80 CoCo. Keep wanting to set them up someday. A little concerned about the electrolytic caps and belts in the disk drives.
