    Anyone fancy PC looking like old Commodore/Amiga?

    Avaible from Commodore-USA from $475 up to $1,295... PC64 and Amiga "remakes" are going be made also. Honestly, I don't know what to thing about this whole business, probably will fail in the end, but it looks somewhat *interesting* visually. Of course it runs only Windows/Linux other x86 operating systems, forget about AmigaOS 4.x or PPC systems.

    The black version doesn't look that horrible, but it really could do without that touchpad.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same about touchpad. Other issue is the Windows key, like they couldn't make C= one for better overall effect. From what I read, Amiga communities find those products as disgraces and not real Commodore/Amigas. Can't really blame them, this hardware is way overpriced for the guts it has.

    Commodore USA is making a keyboard computer that will look like the classic breadbox C64, according to the website.

    and on a sidenote, maybe not exactly Commodore related, but i managed to scrounge up two very nice retro computer programs.

    Wasted so much time on that one back in the times of Reagan and Gorbatschow...

    Never knew that was the real name, I thought it was something like "Skiing" or "Ski-something". Good one, too, but I prefer Monty.

    Good grief....

    The brilliance of these coders is unbelievable.

    And nice game finds there. Very nice indeed. I enjoyed Knightmare quite a bit, and the Monty and Horace games as well.

    FUUUCK, Suchy, where did you get that? The magazine on that table on which it says "Moj mikro" is an old Yugoslavian magazine about computers that mainly dealt with C64, ZX Spectrum, programming in basic and similar stuff. My uncle has had a huge pile of those magazines back in 1986 and later when i drooled over the little pictures at the end of the magazine with occasional Amiga game review in it. Good old days, so cool.

    EDIT:

    Hell, the stick-note on the monitor says "ne igraj se poslije 12 sati!", which means "don't play games after midnight!" in Croatian. And the clock says it's 23 minutes past midnight. Now that's some serious nerd-rebellion. :lol:

    Thanks, I didn't even see that link on the pic. The guy is from Croatia but lives and works in USA. That explains the picture.
