Commodore USA, makers of the venerable Commodore 64 on which some of us wrote our first computer programs in BASIC – or perhaps that’s just me – has been breathing new life into the Commodore line with its modern configurations housed in old school Commodore cases.

The company's latest offering is the Commodore 64 Extreme model (C64x-EX). According to the press release, the C64x Extreme is the most powerful Commodore computer ever produced, running at a whopping 3.3GHz with Intel’s Turbo Boost Technology. It features a second-generation Sandy Bridge 2.2GHz 64-bit Intel core i7 and provides a massive amount of storage, RAM, and I/ O options. It includes a 2TB hard drive, 8GB of RAM, two USB 3.0 ports, five USB 2.0 ports, one e-SATA port, SPDIF, HDMI, DVI, and VGA display connections, a slot-loaded R/ W DVD drive, and built-in Ethernet and Wireless-N WiFi.
