Good news for Commodore 64 fans out there! The Commodore 64 is back, and this time it is more advance. The new Commodore(be aware that it isn’t exactly the same as the old version) has the following specs.
- 2 GB DDR Memory(can be expanded to 4 GB)
- Intel dual-core 525 Atom Processor
- Nvidia Ion 2 GPU
- DVD-rom(Blu-Ray optional)
- Muliti-Card Reader
- 5 USB ports
- TV/Monitor support
- Commodore OS(supports Ubuntu & Windows)
- Will support old school Commodore games
Be aware that as of now it comes with Ubuntu disc, but they will mail you the Commodore OS and game emulator once it is ready. You can also turn it into a regular computer by installing Windows. You can buy a build it yourself version($250.00) or a pre-made one(between $595.00 to $895). Also as a quick reminder, it does not come with a monitor, so you have to buy a new one. It will be released this Tuesday(April 12th) online, no plans for retail stores as of yet.You can buy it via Commodore USA.
What are your thoughts on the new Commodore? Are you happy that they are bringing it back or do you think this ship has sailed a long time ago? I am excited for it, I think it could help usher in previous standards used a long time ago.
