    Case capacity would limit off the shelf computing options. Since the

    case
    exists as a kit, people have been building systems, however they are by no means high end regarding regular use, let alone modrn gaming machines.

    I was considering going this route, then saw the TheC64 full sized

    console
    appear on the market.

    wasnt there a huge gap of years from when the commodore cases were last developed and sold to when 'thec64' came out in dec 2019 ?

    Interest in the case only has re-emerged, and it appears cases are being made available. It gives me the impression someone else just bought out the molds for
    the cases or all the leftover hardware from the last group who was going to sell a pre-packaged machine. IIRC the pc cases weren't cheap, and even with
    an adapter to make a vintage C64 keyboard work was not 100% compatible with some emulators' key mapping.
