Re:

This is one of the reasons why so many machines nowadays are 'grey' and I don't mean the colour Games machines used to have such distinctive features,from the Woody 2600 to the bread-bin C64 to the rubber key Spectrum As soon as the Speccy got put in a +2 case,it lost it's character I'd love to see...
