the ps Classic was dogged by poor emulation and poor selection of games.

 

neither of which seem to apply to this device

 

what we are getting is a great working facsimile of a full keyboard c64. Just what we have been waiting for.

 

I've just preordered one. If it's shit, you owe me £100

For those that want something more than The C64 delivers, you might want to keep an eye out on the Mega65. 

 

It is going way beyond what The C64 delivers so it's more comparable with the Spectrum Next, but essentially a team are working on releasing a version of the fabled Commodore 65, which was Commodore's attempt at a souped up C64 in 1990/91 with a 3.5" floppy. 

 

The original C65:

The MEGA (useum of Electronic Games & Art) 65 (http://mega65.org)

Keep in mind that this was supposed to be released in 2016, but like the Spectrum Next it's been delayed, but they've recently created samples from the moulds, so it's hopefully getting close to the end.

Be great to have a small machine i could load up with games and use with HDMI. Be even better if you could hook it up to the net..

You could, with a little effort, try something like Amibian:
