Why so many choices? I'm assuming after you typed in 'zx spectrum' you realised you had loads of free time left and made up some random answers for the thickos who don't understand computers? :wink: :D

It's iconic - I bet even you Spectrum-nuts can spot a shade of brown in the 'real world' and identify it to within a couple of shades of the original C64 case ;)

I suppose Commodore tried to fancy-it-up a bit with the C64c model, tho.
