We first saw this back in August, with the reissued Commodore 64 mixing authentic 80s-style looks with a modern specification. Well, it's now got a new name, the C64x, as well as some official photos and a confirmed set of features, including the option to revert to an '80s machine.
According to Wired, the new version has a dual-core Atom processor, 2GB memory, NVIDIA Ion2 graphics and a Blu-ray drive. There's also lots of USB and memory card slots, along with HDMI, VGA and DVI-D ports. But there's also some added authenticity.
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.
