The full-sized THEC64 has a full working keyboard, comes with an updated micro switch classic joystick which plugs into one of the four USB ports, and connects to any modern TV via HDMI.  It features three switchable modes – boot straight into original C64 BASIC, VIC20 BASIC or switch to the Games Carousel and play one of the 64 built-in games in 50Hz or 60Hz, with optional CRT Filters/Screen modes.
