You make it sound like it was old in '81, however: Happy 40th birthday Commodore VIC-20 too.  Yes, technically it was released in Japan in '80, but nobody here lived in Japan/had a VIC-1001.  I've never heard a concrete, verifiable answer on what month it was released in the US.  Just vaguely mid-summer.

 August 12, 1981 at a news conference in NY, IBM introduced the PC. 40 years ago. Holy cow. I think I was still using my VIC-20 then.
