VIC-20 of the Modern Era: Maximite

If you miss the VIC-20, here comes the Maximite. BASIC programming, uses PS2 keyboard, VGA out, and based on a PIC32. Prices look aorund $60-$70.

In a way it reminds my of my old RVHE boards (which are no longer produced). They were incredibly simple to program in BASIC with a very fast interpreter. They didn't have a keyboard/VGA connection, but did have Ethernet you could telnet into! The Ethernet did not DHCP very well though, so they were not as useful as I was hoping.
