Hardware, Embedded Systems I'm not really sure what to do with this. I mean, I know how popular the Commodore 64 was and still is, and how significant a machine it really was. So, when Commodore USA sends out a press release that it has acquired the rights to produce an exact replica case of the C64 (but with Intel Atom innards), I knew a lot of people would like this. At the same time, Commodore USA's website always seemed a little... Sketchy to me.

No one particular model of IBM compatible (a.k.a the common PC) sold 30 million models because the way computers were made changed - back in those days, the hardware was fixed for years. I'm not doubting the number, and I'm certainly not disparaging the success of the C64, but I think it would be fairer to say that it was the best-selling computer of the pre-PC period.
