Commodore revives Amiga with powerful Mini PC

Following the revival of the legendary Commodore 64, Commodore USA is now bringing back other historical models with powerful modern-day specs. Today, the company unveiled the Commodore Amiga mini PC as well as a new C64X Supreme, a new VIC mini, and an upgraded VIC-Slim keyboard computer now with HDMI output.

The Commodore Amiga mini takes on minimalist styling with a square aluminum housing with rounded corners. Inside, it packs a powerful Intel Core i7 3.5GHz (3.9GHz with Turbo Boost) quad-core processor, 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 430 GPU with its own 1GB of RAM, and a 1TB SATA hard drive. It also sports two WiFi antennae, Bluetooth, a slot-loading Blu-ray drive, and a slew of ports, including four USB 3.0, four USB 2.0, HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort.

The C64x continues the retro styling that Commodore fans celebrate, but now features Intel's D2700 dual-core 2.13GHz CPU, 4GB of RAM, NVIDIA's GeForce GT520 GPU, and comes with a 1 or 3TB hard drive, among other upgraded specs. The VIC mini has the same specs, but is wrapped in the same aluminum housing as the Amiga, while the VIC-Slim does a modern take on the keyboard computer form factor and packs an Intel 2.13GHz dual-core D2700 processor with 2GB of RAM, and a 1TB SATA hard drive.
