This may be old, but I have not seen it before, but how cool is that. Its an all in one in your own commodore 64 keyboard.

The trademe listing looks cheap compared to the RRP of $999
Still too much for my budget and it doesn't look like it has expert or action reply cartridge support.

I like this version of the C=64 as a gaming system http://www.amazon.com/Commodore-64-Games-Joystick-Electronic-Game/dp/B000701CSM/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&q...

commodoreusa.net: Play all your favorite 8-bit era games within seconds of turning the Commodore 64 on, by either selecting the C64 icon from the boot menu to run a C64 emulator directly, or from within our own Commodore Operating System where you can launch classic games in seconds.  

Note: Commodore OS 1.0, along with emulation functionality and classic game package, will be mailed to purchasers when available. In the meantime, units come with the Ubuntu 10.10 operating system on CD ready to install.


Apparently commodore OS is coming, but has ubuntu at the moment
