And finally, after more than 25 years, the long awaited update to the Commodore 64. This was my very first computer actually. My dad took me to NYC where he was shooting a commercial for a toy company. They had all of these toys lying around in a big heap for one of the shoots. 10 year old me was intrigued. The owner of the toy company noticed, came over to me and told me I could pick one. I went for the thing that looked the most expensive of course. The Commodore 64. I took it home, hooked it up to our television, which served as a monitor, and our world's history was forever changed.

This bad boy is actually update with some pretty impressive specs. Check the product page for details. But, it's the nostalgia I want it for.
