The system starts out at prices much closer to those of the C64 in its heyday. A Barebones version is now available at $250 for those wanting to install their own components. A realistic, complete Basic version starts off at $595 with a 1.8GHz Atom, NVIDIA Ion graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and no optical drive. At its most expensive, the $895 ultimate model has a Blu-ray drive, 4GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and Wi-Fi.

Every model has multi-format card reading and modern video out and expansion. Ubuntu Linux 10.10 comes with the system. Soon after launch, though, Commodore plans to give buyers a copy of Commodore OS that replicates the original C64’s environment and software support. No plans exist so far to ship the system with Windows.
