It'd be pretty swank if they made the cartridge port a USB port LOL. If they made a hardware SID sound card that would be icing on the cake.

Well it required to be plugged into a certain port, so I'm not sure if it would be able to use a regular cassette deck or not.

I wanted one of these things bad. I got a VIC 20 around a year before the 64 came out and the parents wouldn't buy it. It looks pretty cool.

I'd prefer the Vic20, so many fond memories of writing programs in BASIC that didn't really do anything worthwhile and those 4 same levels of GORF over and over and over. If the price is right though, I'd buy one.
