I love a bit of retro, me…

…and I think that the original Apples were an impressive technological achievement. But, for my money, I’d rather have a C64, Amstrad CPC, Spectrum, Apple IIgs or c - or (best of all) the Retro PC 5150 kit.

For my money, retro computing (like classic cars) is about the fun that you can have, not the investment value. And an Apple I (or pre e II) isn’t much fun. And the Retro PC 5150, whilst a technologically weak bit of technology (even in 1981 terms) can’t be beat for fun. It’s like Lego. But with microchips.
