looks like some company is releasing a new version of the C64... no SID chip though? ugh.http://www.commodoreusa.net/CUSA_C64.aspx
The new Commodore 64 features genuine Cherry brand key switches, which provide a feel much better than the original, with a lovely IBM classic mechanism and click sound. The keys are the exact same shape as the original and are color matched. No expense has been spared. This is the ultimate hackers keyboard on which to wield your key-fu.
The new Commodore 64 also features a slot or tray load DVD R/W(Bluray optional) on the left side of the unit.
The base Commodore 64 comes with 2 GB of DDR3 memory and is expandable to 4 GB.
A multi format card reader/writer and a USB slot are provided on the right side of the unit. There are an additional 4 USB slots on the rear of the unit for all your peripheral needs.
The classic power light is now the power button.
The new Commodore 64 can be connected to the latest televisions and monitors, and can deliver 1080p HD quality video playback and 6 Channel High Definition Audio for an excellent home theater experience. It also incorporates wireless n wifi for exceptional internet video streaming quality.
Play all your favorite 8-bit era games within seconds of turning the Commodore 64 on, by either selecting the C64 icon from the boot menu to run a C64 emulator directly, or from a media center program within our own Commodore Operating System.
