Here’s a blast from the past. Commodore, the company that very well may have made your first computer may be behind your next netbook. I mean, probably not, because, well, look at it. But still, it’s interesting to see Commodore alive and kicking.

The company unveiled the new UMMD 8010/F at the IFA show in Berlin. The computer has a 1.6GHz C7-M CPU, an 80GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi and optional Bluetooth. It has a 10 inch display and a 1.3MP camera and prices will start at £325 or about $610. So umm yeah, can’t see any reason to buy this computer other than nostalgia. But still, it’s a Commodore!

  1. That Commodore has nothing in common with the one we all knew and loved. The name and brand has been sold many many times since the real Commodore went bankrupt in the 1990s.

    1. It’s a good thing that the new Commodore has nothing to do with the old. Commodore were a pack of thieving creeps. That’s how they managed to go bankrupt selling two of the world’s most popular computers.

      The new Commodore is a Dutch company that, until recently, was called Tulip.

      I wouldn’t buy this. I have real C64’s, just in case I have a bout of nostalgia. Generally, I find that if I do, I can cure it by setting up the old C64 and loading one program. By the time it loads, and hour later, my nostalgia is miraculously cured : rofl

      I am pleased, however, to see how positively people react to the old brand. If Amiga, Inc and Hyperion Entertainment ever stop fighting and actually release Amiga OS 4.1 for general use, people will clearly be all over it like a rash.

  2. Ah, geez, that’s too bad bout the CPU and price. Looks? Eh, so it’s not sleek. Was my original C=64 that sleek? Not with its keyboard it wasn’t! It would have been bittersweet to go back to the Commodore brand.

  3. My first personal computer was a Commodore PET 2001 (circa 1977) with an MOS Technology 6502 CPU (same one used in the Apple II), 8KB of RAM, 40 column x 25 line display, and a built-in cassette recorder for program and data storage. All for $795! The Commodore moniker is truly a blast from the past!

  4. It is the perfect laptop for Amiga Forever / UAE package!
    It looks like an Amiga, it has the C= logo on it and its white!

    I will definately buy one for mobile emulation…
