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.

Commodore before the CD32 also had the Commodore 64GS which was a C64 without a keyboard, custom boot ROM, and a cartridge slot ala Atari. They also had the "MAX" intended to be a game system which was released ~1982 prior to the C64.

Both utter failures, but they had tons of potential.
