Retro find: Commodore Vic20

Went to look for an Amiga 500, but it was in a bad shape and had just too many missing pieces and i found it not worth the time when there are so many more perfect A500's available. My eye caught another piece of equipment from the same owner - A Commodore VIC-20. I asked him if i could take that instead and he agreed.


The VIC-20 is famous for being the first affordable home computer and further development of the platform would later turn out to be the iconic C64. Notice that the casing is much the same, except the color is lighter.
Included are a 16kB expansion (without it, it only has 3kB of memory!) and a tape unit.

Remember: If you have retro gear and want to get rid of it, don't throw it in the trash, but donate it to a collector like me (or one of the many others).
