New C64 pictures!


Recommended Posts

Commodore USA have released pictures of a new Commodore 64 shell for their new line of computers: http://news.cnet.com/2300-11386_3-10007291.html

Commodore USA released a set of "sneak peek" images today of its prototype of a brand-new Commodore 64. One of the most beloved home computers of all time--and part of the group of machines, including the Commodore Vic-20, Atari 800, Apple II and IIe, and Commodore Amiga, that forever changed the way people interacted with computers.

Although 29 years have gone by since the C64's 1982 release, Commodore USA says it is releasing a new version of the venerable computer, complete with a new version of the Commodore OS that has been updated for modern day and which includes a Web browser and a Microsoft Office-compatible suite of productivity tools.

The company isn't saying when--or definitively if--the new machine will be released, but since the pictures were released days after April 1, we can only hope that this isn't a joke.

And remember, Commodore implores, "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."

I recall reading a little bit about this last year. I think it runs some sort of Linux and emulates the C64 so its basically a modern computer in an "old" style casing...
