I loved my Commodore 64

Submitted By Bryan Ruby December 11, 2007

As a teenager in the 1980's, I mowed lawns for three reasons. I mowed lawns to save money for college. I mowed lawns for spending money on the weekends. Finally, I mowed lawns to buy the Commodore Vic-20 and eventually I purchased the Commodore 64. I was neither envious of the school's Apple II's nor my neighbor's TI-99/4A. I had a Commodore 64 and I was cool even before geeks were cool.

Commodore 64 Ad

This month, fans of the Commodore 64 are celebrating the computer's 25th Year Anniversary. Check out the article at CNN of fans with their Commodore 64. Read the CNET article of the Commodore 64 get-together with not only Commodore founder Jack Tramiel, but Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Pong designer Al Acorn. Or just admire the above image I scanned from an advertisement for the Commodore 64 that I kept all these years. For you see, this computer was worth every lawn that I mowed for $15 and $20.

Anybody else have fond memories of the Commodore 64? Also, if you have a blog or photos talking about your Commodore 64...feel free not to just comment here about the computer, but also feel free to leave a URL so we can forward our readers to your site.
