Commodore 64 style returns in style

Is it a keyboard? Is it a computer?


We
must admit it’s been a while since we’ve seen a “keyboard” form-factor PC. Well, that’s if you disregard the old Alienware laptop that we beheaded or rather bemonitored, and which still happily churns out some nice fps. This time however, Gizmodo reports the good old Commodore 64 style is back in action.

The device is actually called ZPC-GX31 and it’s an All-in-one made in a different taste than currently popular devices. The rig runs based on Intel’s G31 Express chipset and supports Intel’s Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad CPUs up to 3GHz/95W as well as some others. It will take up to 4GB of 800MHz DDR2 memory and up to 1TB SATA HDD.

As you can see, the C64 lookalike isn’t quite what we’d call top notch as it comes with four USB 2.0 ports, two PS/2 ports (Two? Seriously?), touchpad and DVI and VGA outs.

The ZPC-GX31 comes in silver and black and at a pretty steep price of between $699 to $1099 depending on the configuration, but in the good old-times-reminiscent spirit, we’re willing to not care for once. I mean, look at it - it looks like Commodore 64.
