The Commodore Returns!

Be cool to have one that I could just lump in front of the TV and plug it up. And the retro design is awesome.

Sadly, that's about the only retro thing about it. The Emulator isn't included at this time, and while there are emulators available online... no classic software is included.

So, basicly, it's not a Commodore 64. It's a fancy computer that looks like one.

No one but old fans will care about emulation anyways, to be honest. It'll be a hipster trend for a while and go down in a blaze of 1980's inspired glory. It just can't compete with laptops, Mac's and even tablet/pad computers. Why carry a clunky fucker around like that when you can have this little slim black piece of plastic on your lap?

Still, I'd like to get one just for the fuck of it.
