    I'm loving the retro feel; I wonder if another classic computer will get such treatment? Reply

    Would be nice if someone would do the same for the Atari series. 800 or 800XL would be nice, I wonder if I can retrofit the 800XL stashed away in my closet. Though I would probably opt for one of the AMD Fusion processors to further lower the cost. Reply

    That's the ticket. The Dragon 32/64 are also ripe for it... maybe even the BBC Micro?

    I just thought how good my Saturn case would be for an HTPC, or at least as the inspiration for one.

    I would want mine in an Apple IIC chassis. Reply

    Heh, that just gave me the idea for putting some modern innards in my old A1200 case. But Llano instead of one of the Es. I want some gaming ability. Or wait until Ivy Bridge comes out and see how the graphics does on it.

    And to think I had last thought about putting the innards of the A1200 case into a tower (I didn't only because I just got a PC).

    I really want one of these as a HTPC, but they are a bit too pricy for that unfortunately. Reply

    Come on! It is not even silence!

    I remember the c64 so clearly and i remember it as silence.

    Now more than 20 years after and we have added noise. Is that called progression?

    Yeah, if I ever got this as a HTPC, I would get the barebone model and use an energy efficient fanless CPU like the Intel Atom. Reply

    too expensive to buy on a whim.

    and no good as a HTPC

    It's too small inside, and requires a wireless keyboard to use on a couch, and would be awkward to fit in a stereo cabinet.

    the only use for this that makes sense to me is a dorm-room / bedroom PC that is used from a desk. for someone who really, really loves C64.

    Hmm, was there more various models of C=64? As far as I remember mine it was all gray and keyboard layout was different too.. Reply

    What a great idea. Why didn't I think of that (repeated by a multitude of others) myself. Just for the fun of if. An Atari 800 with a I7 brain. Make it happen! Where is Nolan K. Bushnell? ;-) Reply
