Quote:The 2011 basic Commodore 64 includes an Intel Atom 1.8 gigahertz processor, a 160 gigabyte hard drive and 2 gigabytes of memory — compared with the 64 kilobytes of memory that gave the original version its name. The high-end version of the latest Commodore includes a BluRay drive, 4 gigabytes of memory, WiFi and a 1 terabyte hard drive for $895.

The latest Commodore 64 also can run Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 7, although it comes with a lesser-known type of operating system known as Ubuntu. The company says it plans to offer its own Commodore operating system that is compatible with 8- 16- and 32-bit software.

The Commodore used to be a gaming console, right? So now, we have this thing that's basically a PC clad in nostalgia. Pretty cool. But I don't know if nostalgia is worth the price. Laughing
