Commodore USA PC64
by Mark R
I remember growing up in the 80’s, I had a friend who had a Commodore 64. Even though he only had a black-and-white monitor that was nothing more than a TV, I was amazed at what he could do with a modem and 5 1/4 floppy disks.
Commodore 64 apparently sold 30 million units, which makes it the best selling computer of all time. Yes, I a surprised that no one has passed that record.
Commodore plans to offer the PC64, an Intel Atom-powered PC that has 4GB of DDR3 memory, SATA 1 TB HDD, an optical drive of DVD/CD, or optional Blu-ray, and HDMI output. Plus it has that awesome beige keyboard, with the keys that will probably click like they did thirty years ago.
At least this is what my Source says that it has. I don’t really understand why I have a picture saying “Insert PC Here”. After all, I thought that the Commodore keyboard things that we were seeing here was the PC. Perhaps it should say “insert monitor here”. It’s nice to know that they have some better monitors since my old friend’s black and white monitor.
It should be available this holiday season, and it is a geek-from-the-80’s flashback that is as welcome as Tron: Legacy.
