    Saw this a while back (when it was just in the rumour stages) but hearing now how they're doing it (essentially putting a netbook inside an oversized keyboard), I think they'd be better off selling the Commodore style "shell" as a case, allowing you to put whatever components inside that you want. Just seems to me that more people are likely to buy that than a complete system just for the retro feel...

    After having a think about it, I think I want to make one... not a Commodore though, not now you can buy them lol, something else... I wonder if you could squeeze an entire PC in to an old Playstation case, bonus points of course for working top-load DVD drive and working control pads (or at least USB hubs in the pad ports)...

    It might be a long way off I'm afraid, got to find the money for a micro-atx mobo with integrated graphics and processor, plus a 2.5" HDD before this even takes off!
