    Looks like there is going to be a C64 Mini along the lines of the NES/SNES classics. Check it out:

    Nothing too special, but looks pretty cool :)

    Didn't a lot of C64 games require the keyboard to be used? That mockup looks
    a bit ... small to have a usable keyboard.

    It does make me want to return to my idea of embedding a Raspberry Pi in a keyboard to make a general purpose classic computer...

    From what I gather, the keyboard is just for looks. There are USB ports to plug
    your own in.

    It's from the same company that raised loads of money for a C64 on Indiegogo .... and are yet to ship to it's backers. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the64-computer-and-games-console

    Hopefully they'll make good on both ventures.

    I have a C64 and C128, a C64DTV and a Chameleon (FPGA board).
    All of them make 100000% more sense then the "thec64".

    I do not see any advantage in it, using an emulator and a small SBC (eg. RPi) is cheaper and better.

    Wife got me a C64 Mini for my birthday. I think it will get some hate by various people (I do love original hardware as well of course) but it's pretty cool. Easy to load extra games onto, other controllers & KB's work, etc.

    The joy stick that comes with it is absolute garbage for sure haha

    I have no issues with emulation.
    My issue lies with the crappy proposition.
    It is cheaper and better IMO to use for example RetroPi.
    Costs less, is faster and much, much more versatile. (and can emulate many, many different systems not only C64)

    So the joystick would be the only possible saving grace.
    If that is crap too then I do not see any point in using the C64 Mini.

    I am using a real C64 currently, and I have ordered a C64 ultimate ...

    Just my 2 cents.

    Hi All!

    I had my fortieth birthday recently, and received a C64 Mini as one of the presents.
    I had a look at it before then and decided that it is not that good.
    But now I got it for free :)

    In the most recent firmware you can add additional games on USB.
    And it is a Linux box ... you can solder on a serial connection, and you can enter DFU mode with a hidden button on the back of it.

    I have to explore a bit more when I have more time ;))

    There is one difference between emulators and the original. The nostalgia factor, what what nostalgia does for someone. You do get some of it with the emulators, and they are really nice, specifically the keyboard differences over 30+ years, but ... its really something to have a nice working retro unit. The marvel of something continuing service for over 30 years. They just don't build equipment today like they did in the past.

    It's working out really well.. I waited 6 months for mine and love it.. Currently I do my basic programming on it.. It's nice having a "HD" even
    though it is not a true HD, built in to it, The thing is pretty rock solid,
    I haven't hooked it up to my inhouse network yet but will be soon. It's nice having HDMI support so I can pretty much hook it up to any monitor or tv that supports it. Another option is the built in RAM Drive support, having a 16
    meg Ram Drive available to you with instant access is really nice especially with my BBS I run on the thing while I am not using it.. The only thing that was not up to snuff was the power supply.. Mine went bad after a week of constant use.. Gideon was not happy with the supplier he was using and said
    he would make it known to them. I replaced it with the same specs supply and it's been running great since.. Welp that is my spiel...

    It's not an emulator per se'.. It's FPGA.. The only thing used from vice is
    the basic, chargen, and the kernal files.. Everything else is hardware

    At the moment there is not 1581 Emulation on it, Scott Hutter (Xlar54) was working on it but discontinued work because Gideon is doing some things differently now and will have 1581 emulation working soon.. As for drives I only use one I have a uIEC/SD hooked up to it, I have it partitioned out to
    12 partitions and a 32 gig SD card in it.. It runs fine as device 8 and although I have to break up some of the directories I have setup to better
    make use of the added space and create less directory entries (The disk
    access is slowing down due to many files in each directory) it does the job pretty well.. The only time the BBS slows down is during disk access.. Otherwise, it is fast as anything with my Turbo232T cartridge, I could
    probably push that to 38.4 with the BBS but then nothing would be seen at all on the screen.. It's already tough at 19.2k! LOL

    Not really.
    You can also change the flash, and have 255 games in flash instead of 64.
    But you can also simply use a USB memory stick.

    There is a revamped version released 1-2 years ago, that adds some cool things.(Commando Arcase SE by Nostalgia)

    Oh I'll have to locate that version. Any tips / links on where it might be?

    Yes and it is OK.
    I have a C64 Ultimate, too.
    But it is quit nice for the casual gamer to quickly play something.

    Thats all I need it for. I have Pi's and Windows machines for everything else.
    Just want the kiddo's to experience old school gaming, and to play a few I enjoyed with them. For $38, seemed reasonable. The second joystick was half the cost of the console :)

    Just bought a C64 mini for my 13 year old as one of "his" christmas
    gifts.
    Anything special I need to add games to this system other then
    copying the
    files I have to a USB?

    A USB key will do the job just fine. I got the C64 Mini and the The C64 and the
    latter is better in a lot of ways, including having a full size working keyboard, better performance and less lag.

    I am using a real C64 currently, and I have ordered a C64 ultimate ..


    It's working out really well.. I waited 6 months for mine and love it.. Currently I do my basic programming on it.. It's nice
    having a "HD" even
    though it is not a true HD, built in to it, The thing is pretty rock solid,
    I haven't hooked it up to my inhouse network yet but will be soon. It's nice having HDMI support so I can pretty much hook it up
    any monitor or tv that supports it. Another option is the built in RAM Drive support, having a 16
    Did you ever get it hooked up to the wifi?

    No, If I am correct Gideon has not set the wifi up yet. I currently use the Ethernet port for network access.. I run my Retro CNet 10.0 BBS from 1986 on it..
