Hold Onto Your Floppy Disks, Nerdz!

The Commodore 64 is coming back! You heard me right, the C-64 is back in production. And it's no April Fool's joke. (I don't think?) It's even better now, with more than double the 64kb of RAM that the original had! Woot! Other upgrades include USB ports, Intel Atom D525 1.8Gz Dual Core CPU, a DVD drive (unless you upgrade to the Blu-Ray™ option), and up to 1TB of storage space.

Preorders are now being taken at the manufacturer's website with anticipated delivery between mid-May and early June. Pricing ranges between $250 and $900, depending on options.

Let's just hope it also comes with an Atari-style joystick.
