Commodore 64 Returns

Commodore 64 Awakes From Slumber With Makeover: It’s back.

The revamped computer will be available through the Commodore USA online store, which is set to open June 1, according to the company’s Web site. The computer will be an all-in-one keyboard, with Intel’s 64-bit quad-core microprocessors and 3D graphics capabilities, according to the site.



  1. Lame on two counts:

    1. It’s an all-in-one PC that they’ve slapped the Commodore brand on. This has no discernable connection to the Commodore 64.
    2. The PC World article is terrible. It’s got factual inaccuracies (“Commodore, however, preferred to develop the Commodore 64 as a simpler, lower-cost, black-and-white-only machine.”) and toward the end it veers of into cheerleading for Apple.
  2. I like all-in-one PCs from small manufacturers (Google “Monorail,” for example). Not sure why.

    However, I hate Commodore USA’s website. The photos are grainy, looking like they were resized from tiny cell phone photos, and the website itself is built without regard to usability or even aesthetics.
