I suppose it's quite cool as a gimmick.

But, once switched on, it would all be a bit disappointing. Just another run of the mill PC.

Yeah, I'm trying to figure out the target market here. Nostalgia buffs are going to want a real C64, not a PC dressed up as one, I would think. And people looking for a real PC aren't going to want some clunky all-in-one that looks like a throw-back to the 80s.

Aren't most of the people who would be interested in a "fake " C64
around 14 and thus to young to know what one is?
