Commodore intros Amiga Mini PC with 3.5GHz Core i7, Blu-ray

updated 11:10 pm EDT, Wed March 21, 2012

Components housed in sandblasted aluminum

Commodore has introduced its latest desktop PC, the Amiga Mini, along with updated versions of the C64x Supreme, VIC Mini and VIC Slim keyboard computer. The computer, which resembles a tall Mac Mini with a slot-load optical drive, is powered by a quad-core 3.5GHz Core i7 processor and a 1GB GeForce graphics card.

The sandblasted, anodized aluminum housing also packs 16GB of DDR3 RAM, along with two 2.5-inch hard drive bays, and a Blu-ray drive. Customers can choose from a 1TB HDD, 300GB SSD or 600GB SSD, while Commodore OS Vision comes included in the basic package.

The C64x Supreme now integrates Intel's dual-core 2.13GHz Atom processor and a 512MB GeForce GT 520 graphics card. The VIC Mini offers the same specs as the C64x Supreme, but in the same case as the Amiga Mini.

The VIC Slim swaps its original 1.8GHz Atom processor for a dual-core 2.13GHz Atom chip, which is paired with 2GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and HDMI output.

The Amiga Mini sells for $2,495, while the C64x Supreme starts at $1,295. The VIC Mini carries a $995 price tag for the basic configuration, and the VIC Slim commands $595. [via Xataka]
