They cannot be compared with each other, but this looks and sounds millions of times more cool than some one chip msx......

It's not a C64, it's sort of a ready-made casemod.

The latter link (Ben Heck's project is cool (and has been reported about before), the first link is just an example of how trademarks can be abused imho :/

yeah, but one chip msx is not msx either. At least not to me. It´s A SHAME that Commodore 64 look-a-like (pc-)computer has to use EMULATION to use "Commodore 64 mode".......... though it´s not any better thing that serious amiga guys have to use emulation to run Amiga software ON THEIR ***AMiGAs***!!!!! oOSad And they still think it´s Amiga they are using.... Eek!

Yeah, but anyway, I just wanted to show this link, as that "Commodore 64" looks good, even the keyboard looks worse than original.

About trademark abuse, it felt a bit odd, when I once used Commodore cd at work.... though that felt nice too. Smile

What we need is just a new batch of Turbo-Rs with the disk drive replaced by a SD card slot, a USB port and an Ethernet connector. Oh, and VGA output would be nice too.

Yeah, and that is probably the only thing I like in One Chip MSX. Wink

</daydreaming>What would you want to do with that USB port? I'd rather have the whole thing as a laptop, then :-)
