Commodore Netbook is a Commodore in name only

While it may not have anything to do with the Commodore brand from back in the day, this Commodore Netbook is sure to catch attention based on its name alone. Jumping into the netbook market, the Commodore UMMD 8010/F made its debut at IFA 2008 and mostly skimmed under the radar.

The netbook will feature a 1.6GHz Via C7-M processor, an 80GB hard drive, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, a 1.6GHz Via C7-M processor and Bluetooth. It will also have a 10-inch display and will start at $610.

And though it’s only linked in name to the old Commodores, it will no doubt gain considerable attention because of it. Nostalgia wins many over and it may very well do it in this case. I mean, this one is an IBM inside, but for the Commodore name, a devoted few will shell out the cash.
