The real question is, "How much would you all be willing to pay?"
Let's pretend the keycaps alone cost about $40 (retail price), and the case another $60. We're already up to $100, and we haven't even included any actual hardware yet. So let's add, say, $300 for the motherboard and built-in floppy drive, which might be low-balling it (see: Ultimate64 Elite
We're up to $400, plus shipping and potentially tax. So for fun let's round it to $450 per unit.
Do we think that's where this price might land? Higher? Lower?
And if it is $450 for a product to land on your door, what kind of interest/market do you think it will find? I think that's kind of the high end for a niche product like this to take full root, personally. But then what if I'm completely wrong and it's closer to $700, or well beyond? I mean, the original C64 cost $595. Adjusted for inflation in 2019, that's $1,545. Would you pay $1,545 for the Mega65?
Has anyone heard a peep about how much an actual Mega65 will cost? I'm not sure the team could even tell us today if they wanted to, but I do wonder what their ballpark figure might be off the tops of their heads. That'd be interesting to know.
