Whenever I have to write about the Commodore I think back to a time in my life when I used to have fun with my cousins when we had to wait for the game to load and the mad rush to hit the Commodore key in time. The company has come a long way in that time, but still likes to keep things simple yet still offering great technology, and that is just what they have done with the Commodore PC64.

You do not have to be an expert to see that this is a C64 replica, firstly you get the awesome nostalgic looks but with today’s tech inside. An Intel Atom CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 1TB of storage and a choice of either DVD or Blu-ray drive will power the computer.

All of this will be squeezed into a replica of the Commodore 64, the company knows that it will be hard getting everything inside the case, but they do say that they are up for the challenge.

Joseph L. Flatley from Engadget is not that confidant that Commodore will be able to pull it off, what do you think?
