There is a few there I would love to get myself, namely the apple 2 and the amstrad. Actually a c128 would be good too!

Why is it that there is never anything to be found on my local freecycle?
It's a mystery...

Nice collection!

You know, it just slipped my mind!
Actually, I know this guy who has a amstrad cpc, and he's apart of the klik community.

Why is it that I see most ppl talking about these amstrad cpc's (sorry, this sounded more like british microcomputers in general)? they dont necessarily have any impact on british culture, and yet there is so many gameplay videos on youtube for the system.

I'm confused and I haven't looked my Vic-20's over for a while. What's the difference in the one you say has a square keyboard and the one from your first post or are they the same?

Also do you happen to know what the difference is in an Apple II Europlus vs IIplus? (never heard of a europlus so that's pretty cool).

The letters on the keycaps have different layout. The "square" one has more square letters, while the newer layout have more narrow, rounded letters. The "square" one is somewhat uncommon and can fetch a bit more money than you'd expect, in particular if the computer is original. It is very easy to swap keyboards between Commodore computers, so if you're a collector the serial number is just as important as how the keyboard looks like.
