Take a C-64, a 1541 drive, and an
itty-bitty composite monitor. Cram them all into a luggable case.
What do you have? Why the SX-64 of course! It's a stock C-64 in a
portable case. The screen, while tiny, is razor sharp with bright
colors. Since it really is just a C-64 inside, it can do
everything that a real C-64 can do, with one exception:
Many printer interfaces for the C-64 drew their needed power
form the cassette port on the back of the C-64. (Just like many
small add-ons for PCs take their power from the keyboard port.)
But the SX-64 lacks a cassette port. Since a disk drive was part
of the package, Commodore saw no need to include the cassette
port. (This isn't unusual behavior for them.)
