Commodore Cg in US
Signaling the company's first real return to the US PC market, Commodore today brought its Cg series gaming PCs in the country. The introduction is also timed with the 25th anniversary of the Commodore 64 and brings the high-end gaming systems that are reportedly popular in Europe to a wider audience with the latest specifications. The top-end CgXX includes the most recent parts, including Intel's quad-core, 2.66GHz Core 2 Extreme chip as well as dual GeForce 8800 Ultra video cards, dual 500GB hard drives, and 2GB of RAM; it also includes the reborn Commodore's luxuries, such as an 850W power supply and one of many individualized case skins.
Pricing varies from system to system as buyers can customize the specifications to their liking, but the top-end CgXX is backed by lower-cost systems such as the basic Cg, Cgs, and CgX which feature reduced performance as well as a simpler black chassis. Commodore will offer the PCs online during the summer and shortly afterwards in key retail stores.
