Well, not if you asked the vendor. If it was a toy, it wasn't a very good
one. If it wasn't, it would surely surprise the kids who played with 'em in

I'm not sure what answer you'd have gotten from Atari about some of their
earlier machines, had you asked whether they were toys.

Likewise the low-end Commodores. Nevertheless, it was up to the owner to
decide what his intentions were.
