When I was a kid, I did not get a C64. I wanted one, but I got another BASIC computer from my parents (A Philips P2000T).
Now, 30 years later, I still want a c64. And when browsing the internet, I saw that they are for sale everywhere. But then I read about the problems. Missing keys, tape recorders with problems like rubber bands that need replacement, proms that need to be reseated or replaced, ... No surprise there. They have been around a long time now :)
And then I read about this fantastic project. A new C64...well not really, but close :)
Diskette, no diskette, C64 look, C65 look, C128 look, .. I do not really care that much, as long as it is FULL sized and not emulating.
Is there any chance that the first will be for sale before the end of this year? Or is it too early to tell. Does anyone know?
So looking forward to owning a mega65 :P
Good luck to everyone involved!!!!
