Commodore is one of the brands that played significant role in the early years of the Personal Computer, and especially Commodore 64 will bring back a lot of memories for the nostalgic users. In 1994 Commodore went bankrupt and stopped making computers, but a few years back the brand was revived with the same focus on gaming and performance as in the past. Nowadays it is just the system building that needs to be done, the hardware is the same as in other PCs. Commodore has now announced that it will launch Core i7-based system, something we did not expect happening a few years back.
