    First line in the article: "If you were using a computer in the ’70s, then there’s a good chance that it was a Commodore 64."

    Yeah, if you were friends with Marty McFly.

    Meh, Marty was born in '68, so that'd be a bit of a stretch...
    There are no problems, only opportunities...

    Haha, lol.

    Cheap plastic, emulator, no means of expanding the game environment. Worth 1/4 of the asking price IMHO.

    I doubt you can program the interrupt vector on this less than C=64...rolling borders my arse...POKE!

    NICE CATCH BROTHER! HERE'S TO THE FUTURE EXPANSION PORT THIS TURD PROBABLY DOES NOT HAVE.

    ON ANOTHER NOTE:
    In my previous post I said I bet you "can" program the interrupt vector for f/x on this smaller less functional unit..I meant you can't. The VIC 20 may have hit in the 70's...at least in The Europe. -s

    The keyboard is fake. It's not a C64, just an emulator with a bunch of old C64 games. The worst thing is the joystick has a .3 second lag and the sound has a .6 second lag. I have a joystick c64 that plays C64 games. It does a good job and I'm happy with it. From what I've seen about the C64 mini, you can do as well or better with a pc emulating a c64. A couple things I saw claimed they were going to fix the lag problems, waiting to hear they are fixed and people are happy with the thing.....

    Yeah, when I said turd I mean like a cute little turd that I wouldn't MIND owning but I would like a LAPTOP C=64 that was genuine...
