[citation][nom]XYMan[/nom]Would have been great if they make one that can run Windows.[/citation]
yea but it wouldnt be 89 dollars .. just an instilation of windows is generally valued around 100 give or take the different versions.. so that kinda prices this out of that market .. its basically a monitorless tablet / smartphone most games and or software wouldnt have proper controls becasue every thing is designed for touch but im sure some devs would beable to take advantage of this device.
So basically a laptop with none of the convenience of a laptop that can't run any of the traditional desktop apps... yeah, this should sell well. I suppose there's a market for something like this in developing countries, but If I had only $100 to spend, I'd just as well get a used lease return laptop from eBay... plenty of choose from there.
I think it's a device that alot of older people that don't game, design or do graphic intensive work will love!!!
It might even catch some use by kids if there are learning activities available for free...
lots of potential I see.
Back in the day I didn't know of anyone that didn't have a c64 or CoCo64(Radio Shack). I did alot of programming on my CoCo64 and it was great fun!
1983 specs : commodore 64 : worlds #1 8bit PC
1mhz 8bit 6502 CPU
64k RAM. ( not 64 mb!! 64k is a single page word document or HTML file )
16 colors in 320x 200 res
- NO storage / NO networking. Just a computer... That cant even save data until you buy a $280 160k floppy drive.
Yep I too had a Commodore 64 and took a long time to finally get a floppy drive for it to replace the data tape drive. Getting stuff for it were friggin expensive but it's what to cost and still cheaper than the Apple II.
... The commodore computers were MADE in the USA (US market version). I had a VIC20, my first computer in 84. It was a great day when my dad got me the (audio) tape drive. I then got the C=128 for Christmas 85... The 13" 1902A RGB monitor in April 86 $250 and the 1571 360k floppy drive @$280. So I never owned any C64 hardware. I still HAVE those 1980s hardware. My monitor is used sometimes today for my video equipment... Rarely...
