Commodore USA is recreating the classic Commodore 64 with modern software and the exact replica of the original beige chassis.
The new computer has 4 GB of DDR3 memory, a one terabyte hard drive, HDMI compatibility, an Intel Atom 525 CPU and Nvidia Ion2 graphics.
It also includes six USB ports, a 6-in-1 media card reader and an optional Blu-ray Disc drive.
The Commodore 64 from the 1980s is an 8-bit home computer built by Commodore International. During the Commodore 64's market-shelf life, sales totaled 30 million units, making it the best-selling single personal computer model of all time. It was priced at $595.
Commodore USA said there is "overwhelming demand from former Commodore users worldwide" for the new machine and plans to roll out a model before the end of the year. So far, the company has not listed a price for the new machine.
