Commodore MLB Systems
Commodore today seized on the holidays to launch a new set of MLB custom skins for its gaming PCs. The initial lineup lets buyers of any of the company's existing systems choose a theme based on the Boston Red Sox, New York's Mets and Yankees, or the Philadelphia Phillies that covers nearly the entire outer surface of the mid-tower case. The company's assembly process applies the artwork directly to the case and so is more scratch-resistant and permanent than a sticker or vinyl cover.
The MLB skins should be bolstered by images from additional teams in coming weeks and should ultimately include the entire league. Pricing rests at $210 to apply the artwork separately or $275 with the artwork applied to one of Commodore's cases. A complete system starts at $1,129 with a 3.16GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of memory, a GeForce 9500 GT and a 250GB hard drive but needs $130 to add the MLB graphics. [via Engadget]
