Retro C64 features contemporary innards

Commodore USA has put its 21st Century take on the classic Commodore 64 up for pre-order, along with a more contemporary take on the same concept, the VIC Slim. The new C64 is fundamentally a retro nettop. Its external design matches in most respects the original design of the C64. However, instead of an 8-bit MOS Technology 6510 CPU, VIC-II graphics and 64KB of RAM, it now features an Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz dual-core CPU, NVIDIA Ion graphics, and up to 4GB of RAM.

Intel exposes NetTop PCs

Through a presentation to a group of business clients, Intel has revealed a new computer design, called the NetTop. The system is designed to minimize the cost of a desktop as much as possible, jettisoning all unnecessary expenses; this carries down to normally standard hardware aspects, such as the inclusion of system fans, or even a CPU socket. Linux may be an option on some NetTops, instead of the more conventional choice of Windows; similarly, costs are cut by switching from hard drives to SSD storage.
