like me can clearly remember the many hours they spent watching television with a Commodore 64 in their fledgling youth. The little broke box-shaped computer was the first real computer for the masses and managed with great brother Amiga 500 computer market transition in the eighties.
Now a company in the U.S. bought the rights to throw the famous logo on their computers by brand Dutch owners. And not only that - they have been smart enough to design a computer that would make anyone nostalgic retro-geek (like me) to drool.
Completely modeled the entire computer built into the keyboard, which is equipped with a quad-core processor from Intel, DVD burner, touchpad, four USB ports, up to 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM, DVI port. The graphics card is in the weaker end, but can handle most common tasks and can draw Aero on Windows 7 At Commodore U.S. website they advertise that you can drive a any lst operating system on it, whether it is Windows 7, XP, Mac OS or Linux. PC is the paltry 44 cm in length and 5 cm in height and is reportedly spend relatively little power.
The big question is whether the new company can sell the new bread box. There is no doubt that the more clothes in most homes than most desktop computers. Moreover, the generation that grew up with the very able. One thing is certain: When it comes to the market in Denmark, then at least they already sold a copy to me - especially if they live up to their slogan: "I loved us then. I will love us again."
There will be opened for sale 1st June.
so they bring back old classic back so now we can all wonder if its still gonna be as easy to copy games like it wass back then 2 tape recorder or if they make it harder since tape recorde is dead but im like a kid i cant wait since this is brining back memories back to when i was a kid this is realy something to get but as I remember it from the time is where realy noisy but the thing i dont get is why did thye not add HMDI that would make it even better but maby thats just me

|Thanks Taker for the memories,|
I don't have my C64 (64k RAM-20kROM) any longer but I do still use my 14" monitor occasionally as it was just a TV without any tuner. I use it for when the nieces/nephews come over. They can use the Sat Box, Cable box, DVD Player etc on it. I remember being so happy when the C64 came out and I spent nearly $1000 on it with all the goodies (tape and disk drives, monitor, printer (man that was as loud as a garbage truck). What an upgrade from the Vic-20(3k Ram-2k Rom)I had. WE had a registered company that advertised in Compute Magazine for software sales (centipede became centipod, Frogger became Froggie, Pitfall became Pitman etc). I wouldn't try that now! In school I used the PET, to learn to write basic, machine language and cobalt. So even back then there was the system wars and I was commodore all the way.
|It was amazing the things you could do with so little. C64 was the first computer that introduced me to file sharing. A great system for its time!!|
|Commodore 64 and Commodore C64 were the best out in the 80's and 90's the C64 C=Cost Reduced Version was the last version they made before they went bist in 1993 due to American Management, the UK team only got word of it when they shut for business, mis-managed again by the Americans.|
|Wow that is a classic I remember playing the arcade style 'DonkeyKong' on the commodore 'vic20' home computer. That must have been about say way back in the early 80's when what I remember astroids, centipede, space invaders, defender, and pacman just to name a few those where the games to be played and arcade style was hard to come by back then as video game consoles just couldn't compete I guess cause of lack of memory. But I definitly remember this.|
|Mismanaged that is a idiot comment. With Ibm/microsoft and Apple introducing new machines how would a 64bit system hold up? There was nothing that could be done to save a system that lasted over a decade which was a huge accomplishment.|
|Thats what the original article said in 1993 ;)|
|First they started bringing out Retro cars like the Mustang and Camaro and now computers! I like this. I actually find how small the PC's are getting today fascinating. I was looking at new computers a few weeks ago and noticed a few models with TINY towers, like a Wii, and some models that did not have a tower at all. Just a monitor and keyboard. That will save some nice desk space. I wonder how long before all PC's are sold with only a touch screen and verbal command capability there-by eliminating the keyboard...or perhaps a 3D hologram interface like in the movie ( Surrogates! )|
|ok sorry magiccrack. guy whom wrote was an idiot|
|Jumpman Jr. was my favorite C64 game!!!|
|What about "Miner 2049er" as a video game? NICE! First "Mario Style" game IMO. The first game like that I can remember...well I just thought about Donkey Kong. Not sure which was first. Probably DK.|

|Memories...I remember playing Castle of Wolfenstein on my Vic-20 before we got a C64. Do you know how long it took to enter all those lines of script to get it to work right? I remember buying computer magazines just for the game programs that you could write for the Vic-20. That was the true original, C64 was 2nd gen.|
|wow KCS Power Cartridge was another favourite along with action replay mk1 upto mk9 was it or something, i was over the moon with my run/stop key, you pressed and it stayed down lol nice memories, except when waiting 5 mins for tape to load and you got a ?Syntax Error.....|
