The famous log-on screen of the Commodore 64. But this one isn't an original. A new company called Commodore USA obtained naming rights and is selling a new version of the C64 that is basically a shell covering a modern PC. Like the original, the new C64 can be connected to either monitors or televisions, however it offers 1080p HD and 6 Channel High Definition Audio playback. Prices started at $595, same as the original.
Here's what the latest version of the C64 looks like (and a gallery).
After getting into a dispute at Commodore, Jack left and purchased ailing Atari from Warner Communications. By this time the industry moved on from MOS 6502 processor to the 16/32-bit Motorola 68000.
The Atari 520ST was also known as the "Jackintosh" due to its graphical user interface. It used the Motorola 68000 and competed against Apple's Macintosh and Commodore's Amiga computers.
