My first computer was a 64.

My only question is, how can you call it a Commodore 64 (which had 64k of memory - which seemed like an awful lot back then) and then throw 2gig of memory into it?

I guess "Commodore 64" just sounds better than Commodore 2Gig.

I do notice that they have the same case as the old ones - probably because they had all of these old ones lying around that they couldn't sell.

Wait, I do have another question. Will the new Commodore 64 still have only a 90 day warranty like the original? I (sadly) well remember what happened to my first one on the 92nd day.

Great points Sir Jim. My hunch is that this product is tailor made for a very specific niche market.

Bringing an iconic piece of technology from the fond memories of yesteryear into the IT of today will be a challenge I'm sure.

My first computer as well. Does it come preinstalled with Jumpman? :confused:
