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.

...is not that awful. Simple, to the point.
As for the products, I don't know, just looking at their "Phoenix", I feel an impulse to buy. It's not exactly nostalgy, just a bit like thinking about your first love. Then reason kicks in: it's not the same machine (and your 1st love and yourself are no longer the same persons either). These memories are just that.
And I'm still having a great time with my Apple ][
