I almost managed to read that. Care to rework that second sentence?

There's hardly any purpose in hanging on to dead hardware, especially something that old.

I was hit by nostalgia a few months back, and had been looking at local ebay equivalents to reacquaint myself with a Commodore 64 (which I grew up with). Fortunately some company managed to put together a minified version (think Nintendo's own NES-mini and SNES-mini from last year) which can use the same disk images as emulators (well, it is, itself, an emulator).

I've tinkered with all the C64 emulators before, but having this in the "right" form factor, with a functional joystick and all, managed to capture my interest over the holidays for far longer than emulators ever have.
