    Wow, and new Amigas coming out too! O.O

    Thanks for the heads up, this sounds like fantastic news that Commodore is making a grand comeback after all these years.

    Unfortunately, I was a Texas Instruments guy back in my childhood...wish I had a choice and knew better during those days, would have loved a C64 more than a TI-99/4A probably, but oh well, I'll live.

    The TI-99/4A was my first computer too. I learned the fundamentals of BASIC programming on it. It was my dad's and then I had my own MSX that I won at a contest myself but no C64 unfortunately. I was jealous of all the games on the C64

    I was lucky enough to own C16, C64, C128 and Amiga 2000 and Amiga 3000 before moving to Atari 1040ST(FM).

    My fav game on the C64 was Soccer Club Manager, me and my friends would burn through many afternoons in winter playing that game.

    However, looking at the new Commodore products, chances are, I'll pass.

    Actually, I would have loved the Intellivision, tbh, since I heard how superior that was to the Atari 2600 during that time. However, I'm pretty sure that the C64 was capable of having the same power to run games similar to Intellivision's, but that's unclear whether there was similar hardware under those hoods. Wow, definitely too much history to really know the difference.

    These are "Commodores" in name only.

    I actually find these computers to be an insult to the C64 name. Commodore (with the C64/128 and then Amiga) fought valiantly AGAINST the IBM PC clones, and ultimately lost, so to now use that name on just another Windows PC is disgraceful in my opinion.

    This is just another way for someone to make a quick buck on nostalgic people that grew up in the 80s.

    I agree with Haz here the hardware is a little lacking as well!

    My first was a VIC20. A good learning experience and where I got started with programming but was not sad to see it go.
