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.

It is less than a labeljob, it is a fraud

Have a look at that page: http://www.commodoreusa.net/Commodore_Phoenix_computer.html
Oh no, they forgot to Photoshop the label on and now it looks exactly like the machine they trying to resell:

From the badly scaled images to the sketchy statements, this all screams fraud.
