Will it require you to SMACK the restore key to get it to register?
Will it take 1.5 seconds to boot up?
If you press reset will you be able to switch the last bitmap in video RAM onto the screen (easier to do on the C=128 with included reset button and GRAPHICS command)?
Will the power supply be prone to overheating?
Will I/O be painfully slow?

All that said I miss my Commodore, despite all its faults. :-(

The L88 isn't hard to beat. Solid lifters that need constant adjustment, hot-running engine in a car with the heat and defroster deleted, with a poor unstreetable idle in a car whose performance is matched by today's family sedans, all that and only 7mpg city, 10mpg highway - if you can find the fuel to keep the 12.5:1 compression engine running happily.
