So just what is it that classifies the C64 as a "toy" computer ? When
it was released, it was far more capable than the existant Apples,
Ataris & Radio Shacks (& a damn sight cheaper too).

Indeed, out of all the machines then in production, which one still in
use now is still capable of (more or less) doing what modern machines
can ?
