Commodore 64 Is Making A Comeback!
Do you remember The Commodore 64? We used to use it a lot as kids. We had a karate game and something called SpyHunter that we would play for hours on end. It was SUCH a step up from the Vic 20. It took about 6 hours to enter a program into the machine, but once you did, it was awesome! Now, The Commodore 64, the classic personal computer from the eight-bit ’80s, is making a comeback. Sort of.
Later this month, Commodore USA will be releasing a computing system that looks just like the original C64 on the outside, but comes equipped with modern specs like a dual-core 1.8 GHz Atom processor, Nvidia Ion2 graphics chipset and up to 4 GB of RAM.
When the C64 debuted in 1982, it cost $595 – the same price Commodore USA is charging for its updated machine. Mouse and monitor are being sold separately.
If you want a piece of this fully-functional nostalgia, you can preorder one on Commodore USA’s website.
