Commodore 64 reincarnated as C64x

During the 80′s Commodore 64 was one of the best selling home computer. It was my first home computer which provided years of fun. You might remember the old school classics such as lemmings and fantasy world dizzy.

The new commodore 64 will be known as C64x and the specs will consist of modern hardware. The system is powered by Intel 1.8ghz Atom dual core processor and graphics is handled by Nvidia Ion GPU. The memory size, hard drive, and optical media drives are all dependant on the model you choose. You have the option of 4GB DDR3 memory, DVD-Writer or Bluray drive and up to 1gb hard drive.

The C64x will run Windows 7 operating system and is pre-installed with an emulator to run the old retro games.

As for the connectivity you have USB, Lan, Wifi, VGA and even a HDMI port which will make it easy to hook it up to your LCD TV. The C64x is expected to be priced at $595.
