The Commodore 64 is the machine that spawned many a computer geek's obsession with all things PC. It's even listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling computer model of all time, with sales estimated at between 17 million and 30 million units worldwide since its introduction in 1982 and its reluctant end in 1994.

Not likely to see many more 12 year runs in hardware!

Consoles are the closest thing now, with the original Playstation managing Dec 1994 to March 2006. That's nearly 12 years too.

Don't know what I was thinking...of course the game consoles are the natural inheritors of Commodore...I was thinking of PC's...":O}
