About 5 years ago, I set up a classroom of discarded but essentially
modern machines (Core2 Duo but couldn't run latest Windows) at our
Makerspace.  For amusement, I set up a Commodore 64 in the back
corner.  It got a lot of laughs.

Except that we needed the seat for a student, I would have left it up
for a few weeks.
