New Commodore Invictus from Commodore USA
« on: May 28, 2010, 10:56:03 AM »


Now that's more like it!!!!!!

I don't have specs for you yet.
(watch this space)
Commodore USA

But it is probably the same specs as what it looks like. :-D

I can confirm that it is ATOM/nvidia based
INVICTUS is the latin word for "Invincible".
It comes in silver too. It also has a stylus.
I do not know if it features wireless wiBand HDMI. I'll see if I can find out. EDIT: It has it.
edit: It has the Nvidia ION chipset, which is a newer higher performance graphics chip set.
edit: It will have 5-5.5 hour battery life. The LCD screen does remain ON when external video is running.

It's the Eee Keyboard that has not came out yet.

Nice... Certainly more appealing than the X1000 (or a fricken ipad!) - to me at least... :-)

The Commodore sticker aside, does this PC at least come with some sort of special software that makes it more Commodore-ish than, say, any other x86 PC?

Sorry for sounding negative, but please help me understand this - I don't really see what the fuzz is all about.  It's just another PC running Windows.
Code 6502 asm or... DIE!!

It is likely to come with AROS as a standard boot option.
I don't know yet, if there will be C64 or Amiga emulation options.
I hope to see some.

Note, that the official launch has not taken place.
The best is yet to come.

Hey, why not just buy one of these to add to your current computer!?

I bet you can fit a C= logo on it somewhere.

Actually there is a fair amount of information about it:

You do realise that those Nanovision MIMO 7″ USB Touch-screen Monitors you linked to are the exact same resolution as the actual touchscreen on the keyboard?

...your point?

They're also movable and you can use them on a much more powerful PC, not to mention you get the whole auxiliary touch screen display experience (which is the only notable thing the EeeKeyboard offers) at a fraction of the cost.

Also, the image on the "Commodore" site appears to be a different unit, maybe a prototype shot or a cheap knockoff of the Eee unit.

I was kind of wondering how long it would take this idiot to rebrand this computer, since he's already got the cybernet and another all in one keyboard on his site.
 
I love the hypeup and make believe nonsense on the website. I wonder how long it will be until commodore international or whoever owns the trademark sues him and shuts him down.
 
Why buy this thing from this joker? Just to get a commodore sticker you stick on yourself? Your kidding right?

 A big disappointment!, May 19, 2010
By    Tzu-liang Lo "findingnemo" (San Jose, CA USA) - See all my reviews
   
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS EeeKeyboard (Electronics)
i had high expectation for this product... but tried it for one day and i decided to return it. my reasons :

1) too expensive - basically it's a netbook, similar to Asus's Asus Eee PC 1001P-MU17-BK 10.1-Inch Intel Atom Netbook Computer (Black) or Asus EeeBox EBXB202-BLK-X0081 Desktop PC (1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, XP Home) Black (i have both of them, and 2-3 starts to both of them), so $600 is too expensive for a netbook (OK, it has ultra-band wireless HD, that's fair to add some $$ for it, but it has no display, which just balance off the wireless HD, so still expensive at $600);

2)loud - the wireless HD receiver has a fan that is loud, even after i have turned the tv audio volume up;

3)this is the most worse one : it can not even handle Hulu and Netflix videos, let along my 1080p mkv videos collections (impossible)

high expectation turned out to be a big disappointment... that's all i can say.
