Still don't understand why anyone would pick this over a modern laptop or a desktop PC. There really isn't much to like about it.
I wonder what the "additional optional hardware" is and how much it will cost. As it stands it's not something that does much for me but if I was in the market for a Mini I would certainly look at it. Now, if it looked functionally the same as the C64, right down to the funky graphics on the keys and the wonderful brown case, I would by one for sheer nostalgia. I might have to find a C64 emulator and my old disk for Castle Wolfenstein or maybe Loadrunner. I know I still have my 5.25" Zork disks somewhere.
It'll be interesting to know what the price will be. As for the optional hardware, I suspect this is a "loophole" approach so that they don't end up the same way as Psystar.
But anyway, details will be announced in June so it's all speculation until then.
This is going to fail so hard.
I can see a niche for it for people using their TV as a monitor and wanting something better than a gaming console. It certainly won't be a huge seller.
I like it!!
have to agree with castlema though it should have looked like the 64 lol though it is retro in design even though its a bit updated..
should i get one??? ddr2 in a quadcore??? mmmmmmm!!!!
What a nickel and dime outfit. I'm not trusting my payment information to someone who doesn't even bother to register a domain name.
Not to mention I can find no indication that this guy has any right to use the Commodore name or logo.
A little research shows that this guy (Altman) is Pres/CEO of Commodore USA, LLC
This thing looks really ugly. It's sad what crap is now sold under the Commodre brand.
Seriously, "You loved us then, you'll love us again"? Um, the "us" you refer to is not the same "us" that I loved. In fact, the brand has changed hands too many times to count since I loved that "us".
Yeah, they're mainly counting on the nostalgic brand name. Well, we'll see when this thing goes live.
This has to be one of the shoddiest looking "corporate" websites I've seen, what a joke.
EDIT: I love that the "configure" page leads to nothing...
Geez, could they have at least gotten sufficiently high-res images of all the non-MS logos? The Ubuntu one looks like it was originally 128x128.
And since when is Ubuntu not Linux? (GNU/Linux people, gtfo)
I thought it was a fake. Still not completely sure it's legit...
I configured it and then scrolled to the bottom and reloaded because I thought the page didn't load all the way. Terrible.
I'm curious to know the base price.
I just can't take this thing seriously. I don't like the fact that my keyboard is HUGE and ugly, maybe if it were in the screen.
I knew this reminded me of something.
Wow, I had completely blocked that out of my mind. Good find!
