The Commodore 64 Mini is a general-purpose computer that comes with Linux. It comes preinstalled with games, but it also comes preinstalled with BASIC that can load other programs. It is supposed to be like a computer made in the 80s, the Commodore 64. It's not even out yet, never mind "retro" and thus it's not on topic any where else. Moreover, we've already had this discussion numerous times and it's been determined that proprietary Windows on ARM was on topic, and so were tablets even. This is Linux on ARM. On the extreme end, we have over a 1,000 questions on a similar ARM SOC which are on-topic raspberry-pi. Why is this any different? What makes the Commodore 64 Mini unique?

It's not a video game. It's a programmable computer, that plays game. To state that it's not a computer, seems like a statement that computers made in the 80s were not "computers."
Looking to get this question reopened:
