So you can use it as a PC, and you can play the old Commodore 64 classics. I like.

If it had a cassette deck then I might consider it.

Really, Grim? I remember waiting hours for a game to load when I had one back when I was 5. Bad times.
It's not an authentic experience without long loads. I may get my C64 out just to spite you.
If you do I hope you have to resolder the contacts to at least 1/2 of the keys! I remember a point where my dad had to take the thing apart at least once a month as another key lost its contacts.
The failed loading was the best bit. I almost completed Gauntlet back in the day but it failed to load the last levels. Bastard.
I never encountered this issue, you must have had a dud console.
I only ever met one person who had a cartridge based game for it (it might have even been some sort of compilation with 4 games on it), I almost fell off my seat when I saw it load something QUICKLY!
You were lucky then; had a friend whose machine failed to load about 1 in 5 games. Awesome stuff.
