Raspberry pi but it’s huge with all removable/replaceable components and comes with lots of fun manuals to learn about computers and programming. That’s the computer I want.

My breadbin C64 is my favourite overall 8-bit machine but the Apple IIc Plus is such a pleasure to use (that keyboard!) and the C128 is such an interesting machine, no other 8-bit computer is quite as unique as it, I mean it’s got a 6502 and a Z80 on board, almost completely C64 compatible, runs CP/M, comes factory with an empty DIP socket for you to play with, and even has an MMU allowing it to address up to 1MB RAM which is just so cool for an 8-bit computer

Today I went to an electronics recycling center and bought a VIC20, Commodore 128, and Commodore 1702 monitor all in working condition (save for the power brick for the 128). I simply adore old Commodore stuff. Now I can start looking at collecting some Amiga stuff too which is exciting!
