    I would far more impressed with a new computer or console.
    Still...it's not a horrible idea.

    A geeky thing to have. I'm sure plenty of nostalgic middle aged men that remembers having one in their teens will get one. :p

    Me, not so much.. I still have my old original C64.. :)

    I'd have to agree - over £350 for a bit of nostalgia is a tad excessive. You can buy a Megadrive console with 2 controllers, 10 built-in games and a cartridge slot for £35.

    A friend of mine had a C64 and I had a lot f fun playing its games, but this is too expensive for what is basically a dual core atom and ION2, I think when the C64 was originally released, it didn't cost this much.
