Commodore computers make a return this year

If you ever owned a Commodore 64 computer back in the early eighties, you remember how cool it was to have a compact computer that, at the time, contained pretty decent audio and video capabilities. Then unfortunately, just a few short years later, the PC revolution occurred and all the Commodore computers of the world became a thing of the past. Now here it is almost 30 years later and it seems that the Commodore computer may be making a bit of a comeback.
Although the company is not the same one from all those years ago, the new trademark holder has plans to reissue the same style of keyboard form factor computer this spring, but along with a few new updates using current technology. These new Commodore computers look similar to their Commodore 64 predecessors, but inside each contains a Intel dual core processor, an Intel G31 chipset motherboard, 1Gigabit Ethernet, a removable HDD, and up to 4GB of memory. The new systems come with the latest version of Ubuntu, but they are also capable of supporting a multitude of operating systems, including Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS X, and other Linux distros.

The good news is that these new Commodore Computer Systems can be custom ordered with different features like processors, memory, and hard drive, for example. The bad news is that right now we canít tell you how much these new systems will cost. The Commodore website reports, though, that the online store will open on June 1st.
