It’s back! The Commodore 64 computer you may fondly remember from your youth (assuming you were a youth back in the early 1980s) has returned from the place where old computers go to die, reborn as something that looks the same, but acts very different. The new C64 comes with a 1.8GHz Intel processor, up to 4GB RAM, runs Windows 7, and even plays back Blu-ray discs. There’s a built-in C64 emulator so you can play those retro games, if your yearning for nostalgia stretches that far. (Via TIME)
The new Commodore 64 features Cherry brand key switches, which provide a feel much better than the original, with an IBM classic mechanism and click sound. The keys are the exact same shape as the original and are color matched.
The ports on the back include mouse and keyboard, HDMI, VGA, DVI, 4 USB ports, Ethernet and 3 audio ports, and a ventilation fan.
