Sawadee The 6502 was the processor used in the BBC Micro in the 1980s. It was also in one of the very early Apple machines when Steve Jobs famously held back $3000 and thus prevented Woz from using a more powerful processor at the design stage.

Clocked at 2MHz, no modern PC's are based around the 6502, although md0u80c9s point about it being adequate, even now, in a washing machine is valid.
