Hot diggity dawg, the Commodore 64 is making a triumphant return! You know me and Bruce are always mocking our computers here at the station by calling them Commodore 64s. How dare we! We actually have fond memories of the best computer ever.

Later this month, Commodore USA will be releasing a computing system that looks just like the original C64 on the outside, but comes equipped with modern specs like a dual-core 1.8 GHz Atom processor, Nvidia Ion2 graphics chipset and up to 4 GB of RAM.

When the C64 debuted in 1982, it cost $595 – the same price Commodore USA is charging for its updated machine. Mouse and monitor are being sold separately.

We'll be signing up for the pre-order. And you can too by checking it out here.
