You're just jealous because the C64 was a LOT more succesfull  ;D
Numbers =/ succes for me. Succes for me is a machine I am happy with. I don't give much about what others think. The thing is that I always judge MYSELF instead of running behind what "everyone" buys.... ;)

However, despite it's supposed superiority, Atari's too can get very yellowed:


That is clearly photoshopped.
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Of course, ALL plastics from those days had the fire-retardents in them that cause this discoloring, only some more than others.
O well, luckily enough, the aluminum housing of my iMac will never discolor ;) And it doesn't need fire-retardents:

Very sorry Kroustibat for totally derailing this topic.
I promise this is my last post on the subject but I just found another evidence that chicks definitely dig the C64.
Here's a (soft) picture of the TRON porn version in which you can obviously see a nice lady + not one but TWO C64  ;)
(Now don't ask me how I ended up on that website, I have no idea)

Nah, that one on the left looks like a VIC-20.
