Commodores!

Without reference to Lionel Richie..

Did any of you guys have a Commodore back in the day? be it a C64, Amiga, PET even? My first ever computer was a CBM 8296. I then had loads of Amigas for years after that. I even got a PCMCIA sampler for the A1200! I currently have a boxful of C64s originally intended for butchering, but ended up just being collected.

Share your experiences!

hah my grandma and grandpa both programmed for the commodore, they made some games and such, and i think my grandpa even had some sort of a point of sale system he made for his tv repair business. I never had anything like that, my first pc was an emachines, and my first game console was an NES, although the most oddball system I owned was Socrates

Not only did I have them back then(C-64, VIC, and various Amigas).... I still have them now.

I'll update this later, but I have a 4000Tower up for sale, if anyone is interested.

Still have my Vic-20 along with its original packaging and its exquisite tape drive. Later, purchased the Commodore 128 and thought I was really uptown. My 300 baud Vic modem is tucked away in the attic along with some VIC-20 games like Blue Meanies From Outer Space, Amok and Spiders of Mars.

I also still have almost every edition of Compute Magazine, which was a must have for us Commodore users!

I remember having Q-Link, who later became AOL, as my Internet provider and I remember texting with people online in Canada. WOW! was that an experience!

Use to buy some games from a company in Mesquite, TX that worked out of a trailer size office in a storage facility called id Software and I would also shop at a small store in a strip center called Soft Warehouse in Addison who eventually became CompUSA!

There's still a couple of Commodore games I wish I could play again!
