Commodore C64 is back with Atom Power

The cult keyboard computer from the 80s is back with new insides.

Commodore USA relaunched the classic home computer Commodore C64 in the United States. That is right. You can buy the C64 that looks like the one you used in the 80s as a kid. The new Commodore C64 has new hardware inside that lets you run today's software. It houses a modern mini-ITX PC motherboard featuring a Dual Core 525 Atom processor and the latest Nvidia Ion2 graphics chipset.

The new C64 starts at $595 with a 160GB HDD and 2GB RAM. This is not really a bargain, but you will be the talk of your cubicle farm if you replace your PC with a C64. I actually never got a C64. I started with a Commodore VIC-20 and then switched to a Commodore C128. The Commodore USA company is also planning to re-release the Amiga line.

Commodore is also offering more up-to-date looking keyboard computers.
