The C= lineage is somewhat different : PET > VIC20 > C64 > C128 > (finally,
but not produced) C65.

Each of these is a logical upgrade over the previous model, the wholesale
replacement of almost everything within the 64 is not an "upgrade", it's a
new machine, call it that rather than a 64, it's a modern "clone" with
somewhat backward compatibility; how much *original* software & hardware
will be broken by the new machine ?
