Not really a recent purchase (about 20 years ago) but have rescued my very first c64 from my parents loft. It has an aftermarket ozzy case from '86 and Load-iT datasette unit. After all these years it  works first time.

A atari 65xe off mr 1200xl (cheers buddy) - a few sega saturn games off the car boot ;) A commodore 1084s monitor with Amiga 1200, and a Commodore Mps1270a Printer. The monitor now runs both my C64 and Amiga, looks lovelly.

Nothing special just a Commodore Disk Drive with some odd bits of software
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=421297927
$50NZD about 22quid
but seeing as I have only just started to collect Commodore systems and have aquired a few in the last month, I thought it was about time I had a disk drive, seeings as one of the C65c I got came with about 100 Disk but no disk drive.

Just won Rip Off and Berzerk games for my Vectrex. Both are complete and come with the transparent overlays. I already have a loose Berzerk cart, i just wanted the box and overlay so if any member would like to trade my Berzerk cart for any duplicate Vectrex carts you might have, please feel free to let me know....especially if it's Scramble  ;D

Regards

Technosound Turbo 2 sampler for my Amiga.  The box is a bit knackered, and the floppy unreadable, but the cartridge is almost mint  :)
