The New Commodore 64

Commodore 64 New C64x Edition

Brand New Commodore 64 Edition Released

A new retro style Commodore 64 is set to hit the home PC market in the coming months. Commodore USA, LLC was founded April of last year and it's determined to bring the Commodore computer brand back into the forefront of a already crowded field. One of the first products they are looking to release is the Commodore 64x computer. Made to look like the original Commodore 64 the new version has the similar beige case, brown keyboard and the classic C64 logo. Inside the Commodore 64x will be all the components of a newer PC. Would be nice to see some more actual C64x product photos on the official site. As of this post the pictures are mostly renders.

C64x Barebones $250
C64x Basic $595
C64x Standard $695
