Commodore PC64 – modern-day PC in original Commodore 64 casing

Pc64

No, this isn't some mad bedroom project, the modern-day Commodore think it's a great idea to stick a modern PC into an old Commodore computer, producing the Commodore PC64.

You've got to admire its bravery or stupidity. Delete as applicable. Anyway, this is an Intel Atom-powered PC featuring 4GB of memory, 1TB of HDD space, HDMI output, an optical drive (DVD/CD or Blu-ray) and of course, 'an exact replica' of the original beige C64 chassis. Before you ask, no it doesn't take tapes.

All Retro To Go writers will be required to use one when they go on sale just ahead of Christmas. Saying that, there's no official price as yet – if it's over £500, we might stick with our increasingly retro/old laptops.
