How many of  you old geeks remember the Commodore 64, an 8 bit home computer released in January 1982? It has a whopping 64kb (that is K, not G) of RAM and cost only $595.

According to PC World, you will soon be able to get a brand new model, appropriately updated for our times:

It’s got a Dual Core 525 Atom processor, an Nvidia Ion2 graphics chipset, 2GB of RAM (upgradeable to 4GB), a 160GB hard drive, and built-in Wi-Fi. On the left side of the keyboard there’s a slot or tray-load DVD (upgradeable to Blu-ray), and on the right side there’s a multi-format card reader, along with a USB 2.0 port. The rear features four additional USB 2.0 ports; mouse and keyboard PS/2 ports; DVI, VGA, and HDMI ports; Ethernet; and support for 6-channel HD audio. It runs Linux, but you can install Windows if you like.

So, if you yearn for the nostalgic, but crave the modern, this just might be for you!
