Commodore C64 Units Begin Shipping Next Week, Custom Orders Available

James Johnson

The Commodore 64 has been remade for modern days and now the PC that made home computing a reality is getting ready to drop next week with a dual-core Atom processor.

The Commodore company (the name was purchased from the original company) has opened an office in Fort Lauderdale to handle custom orders for C64 units, while pre-configured models are also available.

For customers looking for a barebones model the C64 can be bought for $250 while a Basic version will cost $595 and come equipped with a 1.8GHz Atom processor, NVIDIA Ion graphics card, 2GB RAM and a 160 GB hard drive.

For "high end" users you can dole out $895 to add a Blu-ray drive, 4GB RAM and 1TB hard drive, while Commodore will even throw in a Wi-Fi adapter.

Take a look at the photos located below to check out card reader, video out and expansion slots that are also included on the systems which come equipped with Ubuntu Linux 10.10 while no plans for a Windows Operating System have been announced at this time.
