The Commodore 64, perhaps Britain's greatest ever invention, is a machine beloved by many who grew up in the 1980s. Like me. Which is why it's fun to hear that it's making a comeback.
A new company, Commodore USA, is currently digging through the rights to the ol' C64, and once acquired, intends to release a new model. Not a "classic" re-release, an all-new, 21st century computer-in-a-keyboard.
There's no word yet on whether this new C64 would be geared towards gaming, as the original wound up being, or whether it'll simply be a novelty PC. Whichever it turns out to be, it'll be good seeing that chompy "C" logo again.
The Commodore 64 was originally released in 1982, and would dominate the mid-80s home computing scene until its decline later in the decade.
Note the pic above isn't the actual unit. Just a concept whipped up by Gizmodo, based on a similar existing product, the Cybernet ZPC GX31.
