Comparing my Unicomp to my Commodore 16


Unicomp versus Commodore 16

The colour scheme, the texture of the keys and the plastic bezel… it's uncanny isn't it?

I guess the Commodore 16 and IBM's buckling spring keyboard came out around the same time, all they need is to be the same colours and it makes me feel like I'm using the C16 to type up blog posts. I guess I'm silly and nostaligic in that way.

And in case you're wondering, the Unicomp keyboard is still much louder when typing than the Commodore 16.
