    Cool Commodore 64 DTV

    What can I say? I'm a nostalgia junkie when it comes to reliving my childhood (This is the man who has a complete set of Transformers DVDs...), and this product has caught me hook, line and sinker in that respect. If you owned the C64 in your youth, or wanted to, you'll find a few hours of entertainment in checking out the games on offer and reminiscing about when you used to have a joystick just like this one. It could also offer after-pub entertainment aplenty, being as 'pick up and play'-able as it is. There are some truly classic games of their time in the compilation, which could well give the device some longevity once that initial buzz of 'Wow! A Commodore 64!' has worn off.

    Ah yes, and if the adverts were to be believed you could run a nuclear power station with a 48k Sinclair Spectrum

    I have seen such a 48K sinclair spectrum that was used for such purposes..
    Well, not to "control" a nuclear powerstation but to electronically secure entries to heavily guarded buildings and areas.
    Man those Russians always built their stuff in heavy metallic cases.
    Also, no brand on the box just a clean dark metallic case with a russian charset keyboard on it. But you could see it was a Sinclair.
