Back in the UK, when I was a youngster, before SNES vs MegaDrive playground battles we had Spectrum vs Commodore. I was a Spectrum kid, but even this has me clutching my nostalgia bone - a new Commodore computer, complete with the old Commodore 64 casing, that functions as a modern computer, but runs C64 games through an emulator. It's... it's beautiful.
And it's actually a pretty powerful, flexible machine, with HDMI output, six channel high definition audio, 2GB of DDR3 memory and, of course, it looks exactly like a Commodore 64.
Don't forget that the new Commodore 64 is a fully functional PC compatible, so you can even install and use the latest versions of Windows if you really feel you need to. We provide a beautiful graphical boot menu at start up from which Windows can be selected to run, so you needn't lose any of the functionality of the new C64's included Commodore operating systems.
Who's getting one? I'm finding it difficult to resist...
Thanks to Omi at Neogaf for the heads up.
