Set to run similarly to a Windows PC, you'll also be able to indulge in some retro gaming nostalgia with direct access to a C64 emulator.

Other notable specs include 2GB of memory which can be expanded to 4GB, PureVideo Full 1080p HD video and Blu-ray playback, 6 Channel High Definition Audio, four USB ports, and support for HDMI, DVI VGA and Ethernet.

The original Commodore 64, a computer gaming first for many back in the 1980s, sold 17 million units between 1982 and 1994.

Commodore USA, the company behind the C64 resurrection, has yet to reveal when it will go on sale or how much it will cost, but we will keep you posted as soon as we know more.
