Commodore 64 Available For Pre-order


This is not an April's Fool prank. Computer company Commodore has revealed it will once again sell its line of personal computers, including the popular Commodore 64.

Despite the classic look, the computers will house modern technology, such as an Intel Atom dual-core processor, Nvidia Ion graphics chipset, and USB and HDMI inputs.

According to the store on Commodore's website, the Commodore 64 will be available as early as mid-May, starting at $595. The device will ship with the Ubuntu operating system and the Commodore 1.0 OS, but users can also run the latest version of Windows, according to the company' s website.

Overhauled versions of Commodore's Vic series of computers are also available now, with prices starting at at $895. The company is also releasing a line based on the Amiga soon.

The new coumpuer could appeal to consumers seeking a device with a retro style or users in their 40s - 50s who owned the original Commodore 64 and want the nostalgia of their first machine.
