The Commodore xx doesn't just blur the line between gaming and reality, it redefines it.

Yeah, and those are C=:s competitors in the area of pre-built PCs. They certainly will need some good luck in order to make it... I simply don't think they stand a chance. Perhaps if they had a few innovative ideas, but they're just one brand in a million now. They'd probably make more money if they tried to re-market their old products for retrogamers. Or perhaps a handheld Amiga?

It's just not right to use the great name commodore for some pre-built Peecees. This is like having a fish slapped on both cheeks.

This is a dark day

it's not right using the Amiga name (let's face it, Amiga was never a commodore design!!), I really don't care about commodores legacy!

I'm a bit down about it: that they were assembled pc was expected, but i thought of a new and original design, a smaller form factor and possibly a entry level with low prices, but by judging what i see, none of these 3 things is or will be.

The BBC website has a slideshow of Commodore computers, including the Amiga:

I tihnk they need a competition to create the ultimate chasis,

that way they can be more than just a a block box or spray on decal!!

hmmmm and they need their own OS or adopt one.... like linux... so we can have CBM linux!! with full 3d graphics libraries!!!

Whoott imma getting excited over something that is unlikely to ever happen!

sigh..............

I wonder why they went SLI ? and pentium ?

a cost effective solution would suggest crossfire / amd... hmmmies...

A Commodore running Windows Vista?! ..NEXT!
So basically its dell with the dell brandname replaced with Commodore.

Although I like the look of the commodore branded pc cases they be better off selling those I might of bought one
