I want one. I want one so badly I could scream. If Ben Heck wants my firstborn for it, I shall arrange to have a firstborn so he can.

LOL it looks like a radiator cut in half!

A lot of work must have went into that.

I really like the look of that Colecovision Portable thingy he's done...

A great piece of kit. This guy's a genius :)

Despite me being a total Speccy fan, that C=64 laptop looks absolutely superb. And I'm now sooooo jealous as I don't think there's a Speccy equivalent. (Someone prove me wrong!!)

Ignoring the fact the Porta-Speccy is loading Windows (why not Mac OS X?), the biggest issue I have here is that there's a 48K loading Windows. It'll be a multi-load for sure and all I'll get will be "press play on tape" whever I want to do anything. Why not a 128K?
