Commodore 64 Back
April 8, 2011 by staff
Commodore 64 Back, Everything old is new again, as the saying goes, and the most recent example is the new Commodore, which looks exactly like the home computer once popular was instituted in 1982. Under the skin of beige, is a completely new, with a dual core Intel Atom 1.8GHz processor, Nvidia graphics chipset Ion2, and up to 4 GB of RAM and 1TB of memory. As with the original, the monitor sold separately. This wonderful bit of nostalgia lists 80 and for the standard model, but the updates are available, and the basis of a “do it yourself” package for $ (bring your own motherboard, DVD player, hard disk and all I want). With Blu-Ray and HDMI, is the ideal way to watch your DVDs Thundercats!
U.S. Commodore LLC, which was founded in with the express purpose of reviving the nostalgic brand, began selling the new 64 at its website on Tuesday. It is “a modern and functional PC as close to the original design as is humanly possible,” according to the company, which recently acquired the license for the brand. The “new” team previously reported by the Los Angeles Times.
“When the Commodore met its untimely demise in the mid-nineties, we believe that something of great value was lost in the technology world,” Altman says CEO Barry Commodore at the site of Commodore. The company is the promotion of computers as an option for people who want something outside the mainstream, trying to sell their products with a poetic: “I’m not a PC. I’m not a Mac I am a Commodore!”
The new team combines nostalgia with real computing power. “The keys are exactly the same way as the original and are the same color. No expense has been spared,” says the company. Like the original, the new Commodore looks like a bulky keyboard, no monitor or mouse.
And the new Commodore 64 and for a basic model costs – the same price as the original 1982.
But there are some important differences. The Commodore 64 Basic 2011 includes an Intel Atom 1.8 GHz processor, 160 GB hard drives and 2 GB of memory – compared with 64 kilobytes of memory that gave the original version of his name. The high-end version of the latest Commodore includes a BluRay drive, gigabytes of memory, WiFi and a 1-terabyte hard disk and 895.
The last Commodore 64 can also run Microsoft Corp. ‘s Windows, although it is a lesser-known type operating system called Ubuntu. The company says it plans to offer its own operating system that supports Commodore 8 to 16 – and 32-bit software.
The first crop of PCs has been sold, but others will be available from mid-May and early June, the company said. The company did not disclose the number of machines already sold.
