Commodore. Remember that name? It's a big one in the world of retro gaming, but perhaps not as big as the Amiga brand. Both are coming back into the limelight this week with the introduction of the Commodore Amiga Mini PC, a Core i7-powered small-form-factor box that is sure to tickle the fancy of gamers who remember what it was like to rely on an Amiga. It's the first Amiga to surface in 20 years, and it's packing a serious punch.

It ships with an Intel Core i7-2700k (3.5GHz quad-core) CPU, 16GB of DDR3 memory, a 1TB hard drive (or optional SSD), Wi-Fi module and a slot-loading Blu-ray drive. There's room for two 2.5" hard drives, too, and it measures just 7.5" x 7.5" x 3". That's not all that the company's launching, though. The C64x, highly regarded by Commodore fans for its retro styling, now features Intel's new D2700 dual core 2.13 Ghz CPU and nVidia GeForce GT 520 (512Mb) graphics for enhanced gaming capability over previous models. It also features 4Gb Memory (DDR3 1066), a 1 or 3 GB SATA drive (300 or 600 Gb SSD optional), a mechanical keyboard, a built in multi-card reader, WiFI, Bluetooth, VGA, DVI and HDMI output, 7.1 channel high definition sound, 2 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0 ports for exceptional external data access, a slot loading Blu-ray drive that can also write DVDs and 2 WiFi antennae for outstanding signal reception.


The VIC mini has specifications identical to the C64x Supreme, wrapped in the elegant aluminum enclosure of the AMIGA mini.

The VIC-Slim is an upgraded unit replacing the previous 1.8 Ghz dual core Atom with the new Intel 2.13Ghz Dual Core D2700 processor and includes 2Gb RAM (DDR3 1066MHz), a 1Tb SATA Hard Disk Drive and HDMI output.

The new Amiga Mini starts at $2495, which might just scare off most of the folks who were ready to pull the impulse trigger.

As with most of the new Commodore products they look cool or retro but ware way over priced even for just the case. The Amiga mini case with a Blu-Ray drive is $400 on its own.
