This system comes with some modern components (including the Amiga-style mouse, game controller and HDMI cable and USB-C power cable (you do not have an AC adapter, so you will need to bring your own AC adapter out of the box).
The computer can output 720p video at 50 or 60 Hz to a TV or monitor. Even when you play on a modern screen, there is a custom CRT filter that gives the games a very realistic look.
One of the weirdest things about the device is that the keyboard is just for display – you can’t type on it.
In fact, the keys do not even move. Instead, they help fill the illusion that you are using a 1987 computer instead of a Retro 2022 video game console.
But most games need to be playable using the game controller, and if you need to enter text, there is an on-screen keyboard that you can use anytime.
Or you can insert the actual keyboard using one of the device’s 3 USB ports and assign the other two to the game controller and mouse.
USB ports allow you to connect third-party game controllers or storage devices.
THEA500 is powered by an Allwinner H6 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, unspecified amount of RAM and 256MB of internal storage operating system and pre-installed games.
There is one Joystick controller Ideal for people who like the experience of the 80s.
But critics generally prefer quick setup and ease of use.
Official support for loading your own games sets the THEA500 Mini apart from many retro consoles, and functions like these often need to be hacked if you wish.
