[eBay.ca] (Best-tech-dealz) The C64 Mini - Bilingual for 24.99

Looks like they dropped the price of the c64 mini again to 29.99. 57% off is pretty hot.

Looks like the Price Dropped to 24.99, that is the lowest i've seen it go.

You know what I would buy in a heartbeat? The first Computer I ever had that crapped all over PC gaming back in the day...was the Commodore Amiga 500+ (I later upgraded to the professional desktop version...the Amiga 4000...the one they used to make a lot of VFX for TV and movies back in the day. Loved that Video Toaster program too! :) )

So if they ever released an Amiga 500 Mini (which I doubt because the Amiga unfortunately was not marketed properly in North America as it was in Europe and other continents as the 64 was in North America).

I know it can be emulated flawlessly with an Amiga Emulator like Win UAE etc....but it would be awesome to have a mini-version of the Amiga 500 loaded with all the best games...and can be hacked like the PS Classic to load more Amiga games and Programs. Oh well, one can dream. :)

Waiting for all the "Bilingual?! No sale" comments despite the keyboard being nonfunctional, haha.

I had an Apple //e as a youngster and my second computer was an Amiga 500. Have such fond memories playing with that thing. This C64 is pretty temping for the nostalgia. My neighbor as a kid had a vic 20 then upgraded to a C64... cool times!

When I logged into my ebay account, there was a banner that I could click on for a 10 dollar coupon. Brought the price to $18.74 after tax (NB).

The coupon code was MYTEN9QWY8BF8BM (YMMV)

Must have been a targeted code, as I don't see any banner for $10 and nothing in messages or email. Also that code you posted doesn't work for me.

8-bit & Metal Jesus have some reviews of the C64 mini if anyone cares, I guess it's kind of cool for this price if you are feeling nostalgic. But at the same time, seems rather limited and you'll want a keyboard in certain cases. Personally I never had a C64 so will be passing.

The non functional keyboard really deflates the nostalgia of this product. It's just a plastic mold.

It needs a working Shiftlock key too. I guess most people here would not be old enough to understand what that means.

Pretty neat. I'm tempted to buy it for the low price.

But I cannot see that I'd turn it on a second time. Would you?

I loaded a great Atari 800 emulator but have only used it the first day (and we had used the Atari 8-bits back in the day; similar to but better than the C64).

I get nostalgic about a lot of computers, and have kept a bunch, but actually using them doesn't seem rewarding.

My latest acquisition is a lawn find: a ZX Spectrum +2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX_Spectr ... pectrum_+2 . Unfortunately I haven't yet got a power supply or SCART converter.

A fellow Amiga user! I had a 2000HD and then a 1200 with a 030 board @ 20?? Mhz. I can't believe I sold or gave away both back in the day. The prices for the 1200's are stupid. At the end of the day, I really wanted a "new" 1200, but I had to really ask myself how much I'd use it in actuality. And I think the answer was "not that much". Nostalgia is a bitch! The feeling of firing up WB or playing with lightwave will never be the same!

Another fellow Amiga user :) . I started with the Atari 2600, then moved up to the Commodore 64, and once the Amiga came out, I knew I had to get one. Loved my 500. It blew the PC out of the water when it came to graphics and sound. Great memories making music and playing games! I am acutally just in the process of setting up a raspberry Pi emulating an Amiga. I still have my Amiga 500 and my Amiga 2000HD, but I am looking to move to an emulator as from what I have been reading and watching on Youtube, Amibian and a Raspberry Pi will get me a full blown Amiga 4000 running just great. Smaller form factor and easier to get my ADF files on an emulated system than the real Amiga.

I did pickup a c64 Mini at $50.00 on sale and just got a second one from ebay. At $25.00 it was cheaper to buy that, than an extra joystick on it's own.
