Sneak Peek: Commodore 64 Mini

The miniature version of the iconic Commodore 64 is finally launching in the US market next week. But before that, let's take a sneak peek inside the box of this modern rendition of the highest-selling single computer model of all time. Included in the C64 mini package is a 50% scale replica of the original console, a replica of the C64 Joystick, HDMI Cable, Manual, and a USB power lead. Aside from that, the console comes with 64 classic games, a save game function, 4:3 ratio with full width complete with CRT filter and US/Europe display mode options, two USB ports, and software updates via USB Flash Drive.

Take note that this replica is a fully functioning computer and comes equipped the C64 Basic. To utilize this feature, owners must connect a USB keyboard through the USB port since the built-in keys are non-functional and purely for aesthetic purposes only. Another thing is that the package does not include an AC Adapter to which a separate purchase is required. C64 Mini is due to launch on October 9 for $79.99.
