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.

The Guinness Book of World Records lists the Commodore 64 as the best-selling computer model of all time. Having been a part of that generation, I would agree with their assessment. Certainly IBM PC clones sold many tens of millions of personal computers, however all different models. The record is for the best selling computer model, not best selling computing platform.
