C64 Mini – go ultra-retro with this version of the home classic

Are you retro-fiend? If you want to go back further than just what Nintendo has to offer with its new Classics line, then why not go back to the early 80s of PC culture with the C64 Mini, the tiny version of the computer that ruled home computing in 1982.

This version is about 50% smaller than the full one. Computers used to be so big! Now they fit in your pocket. The wonders of technology. Anyway, besides its much smaller profile, it’s gotten a bit of an update and sports HDMI connection and two USB ports. You can use them for attaching a keyboard or just a second joystick for two players.

This machine works just like the one in the 80s and much like that, forget doing anything useful, this bad boy is loaded with retro computer games. Monty Mole and Hawkeye as well as many others. If you do want to do more than play games however, you can use this as a functional computer. There’s no price yet and it’s not expected until 2018 but these things sell out fast.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
