Rubber keys with programming key words like "goto" and "poke" in red and yellow accessed via different key combinations.

Typing in code from magazines and then having to debug it because of printing errors.

Only having 32k of memory.

32K?? Big spender. I remember when my dad brought home a tube of insect-looking memory-chips to install into our Apple ][ so it would finally have "enough" memory to run some of the more recent programs. Eventually maxed it out at like 48K?
