    Was that planned or a real cool coincidence?

    Hell.
    That's cool. I really like the fact that they're keeping the old designs for their new models, too.

    Yawn... If I were to go buy a brand new machine to get my C=64 on, it'd be this, and I'd do whatever it took to cram that thing into a 64, 64C, 128, 128D case... Or maybe an Amiga 1000... The original, I mean, not theirs.

    I still have an old Commodore monitor laying around here that I could use with this. xD

    Actually, you most likely can't unless it was one of the multi/bisync (eg 1940) models. Not w/o a signal converter anyway. Most Commodore monitors only sync to 15kHz and will not sync to 31kHz required for VGA.

    Personally I'd go for an A1200 and one of these:

    ...as well as hooking up a CompactFlash card in place of an internal hard drive.

    my jealousy meter is off the charts; i've always wanted an amiga or a commodore, and those machines look absolutely awesome.

    i very much want.

    I've already got an 060/604e powered 4000 on my desk, a 1200 would be a down grade and not as novel as the Commodore One. There are swappable cores for the Commodore One for C=64, Amiga, Amstrad...

    Erm... I'll stop before I start gushing and really exposing my geekness.
