Commodore 64 back from the dead -

The Commodore 64 has had a makeover and has been resurrected as a modern PC.

The machine, which sold 17 million units between 1982 and 1994, ran on an 8-bit processor.

Commodore USA are planning to flog the new machine on the outfit's online store.

It will be an all-in-one keyboard, with Intel's 64-bit quad-core microprocessors and 3D graphics capabilities.

The new machine will have 500GB of hard drive storage and 4GB of RAM. Also included are a DVD-RW drive, a touchpad, four USB ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port and a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) port to connect monitors.

It is small, measuring 17.5 inches wide and 2 inches tall and will run the Linux, Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

 

Still it will not be the same. It will probably work for one thing and the whole point about the C64 was that it was supposed to be clunky not swish.
