[citation][nom]fun500[/nom]It sounds good until you read into it: http://www.osnews.com/story/23756/ [...] gal_Action[/citation]

Thank you for pointing that out. They have never had the best practices and this is just another suppression of free speech of the press.

Ah, the memories! That Commodore PC64 sounds cool actually, mostly for the retro "awe effect" it would bring to a room. I had the C64 and later an Amiga 600 back in the days, eventually moved on to the 386dx33.. Anyways, those were the good days!

[citation][nom]Pei-chen[/nom]How about fitting a i7 quadcore and a mATX board inside? Not sure why a Atom desknote need to be that big.[/citation]

Yes, these systems would be more appealing with a bit more power to them.

The Amiga was a kick-ass machine because of the hardware. A dedicated chip for all the major systems; sound, graphics, I/O, etc.

Pei-chen got it right. That big, clunky box could hold some heavier duty equipment. I'd rather see these guys licensing and manufacturing retro CASES that you could build into, rather than pre-built machines. What is the market, 40 year old nerds that currently don't own a computer?

good point, as a 40yo nerd myself, I own several computers, find this case appealing (coz of memories), but am not interested in the anemic contents. Sell the stand alone cases already!

I am not a big sue happy person and i enjoy the freedom of speach. But news casters and internet writters try to hard to pursway people one way or another toward their own personal believes and in doing so they ussually make up stuff. It's one thing to say something negetive person to person about something, but when you write a review based on something you know little about and then put your own twists on it just to make a news artical, then your asking for trouble. I was never a big commodore fan, but who knows what tommorow might bring. Go Commodore..............

The Amiga was never very popular, that's why it died.

Like the Alpha, it became much better after it died, but, while it lived, it was a niche product.

Unless this thing is running a 68K based processor, it's not an Amiga. Emulator + PC Hardware doesn't make an Amiga. It's just a PC in drag.

[citation][nom]eddieroolz[/nom]Personally not interested as the Commodore name means nothing to me. I wasn't able to take part in the retro days of computing.[/citation]

Then you are just a teen punk. :)

I tinkered with AROS a wee bit ... the OS has promise. If they get the bugs worked out and the hardware all spiffy... I think the "others" best watch their backs.
