    Smile Anyone want a Commodore 64? No really...
    Some of you may have gathered from my twitters that I am moving. It seems like only yesterday I landed in Las Vegas, but it has been a full 2 years!!!! And this time my move is more organized than the past moves, and I am actually going through all the boxes that got here by hodge podge, sent by my daughter to San Francisco, then more brought by her when she moved here last fall. In the midst of the memorabilia collected through the years is my first personal computer, a Commodore 64, in the original box, no monitor or software or peripherals.... just the base. So.... if anyone wants it.... just pm me your address and it's yours. I hate to toss it, but I also hate to drag it around some more.

    Since you still have the original box, I would had thought that you could sell it on ebay for some good amount of .

    Another vote for ebay!

    Also, if you sell it on ebay you are probably selling it to a computer enthusiast who is THRILLED to get it. They will take great care of it. It is a win-win.

    It looks like it would be more trouble than it's worth to sell it on eBay. No one is bidding on the Commodore 64s that are currently listed (and one does have the original box.)

    Yeah, I thought about putting it on eBay, but didn't even look recently because I had seen auctions in the past that were low. I just figured someone here might want it I know there are some electronics enthusiasts here and thought there might be a collector or two

    omg Rhea! I looked at that link... DOT MATRIX PRINTERS!!!!!! My head hurts from the sound, lol. We did major offline fundraising events and sent out thousands of personalized letters to people (using SuperBase software on a C128, the best mail merge ever!) The printer was so loud, and I even had a sound enclosure.... lol. THAT was a blast from the past!

    I think I still have some C64 software! I have some friends that may be interested. I'll pass the word along.

    Ding Ding Ding, we have a home Thanks Ethan, and if it's the cartridges we can pass the word along to the new owner. This one is hard drive-less... imagine? No memory and no hard drives!
