Well it’s back sort of in spirit anyway. This new version of the C64 looks just like the original but inside you’ll find modern day tech like an Intel Atom CPU, Nvidia Ion2 Chipset, and up to 4gb of DDR2 ram. I remember spending quite a bit of time with my Commodore Vi2-20 and then upgrading to the C64 and then the C128. The C64 though is still my favorite of all time, it was just so much fun and of course all of the memories it holds for me. I may have to get one of these just for nostalgia sake. I don’t know the price as the ‘buy online’ button isn’t working.
