Utilitarian clean lines, hefty chunkiness, and glorious beige. That's the Commodore 64 everybody loves, not the travesty at the beginning of this post.

This post really makes me want to play a few rounds of Wizball, Lode Runner and maybe Jumpman or Jumpman Jr. Then I'll want to swap some demos (like Phantasmagoria) with some friends via trusty old 5.25" disks.
