Commodore launches little laptop
The famous Commodore brand is to be attached to the lid of a Small, Cheap Computer.
The UMMD 8010/F will be based on VIA's C7-M processor rather than an Intel Atom, but its other specs are classic SCC.
The unit will have a 10in screen, 1GB of memory and an 80GB hard drive. There's a memory card slot, an Ethernet port and several USB connectors.
Add to that a 1.3-megapixel webcam, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and you have a machine sounding a lot like MSI's Wind - minus the Atom CPU, of course.
As you can see from the snap taken by Norwegian website NRK Beta, the netbook has something of the original C64 about it. According to a Pocket-Lint report, it'll cost a decidedly C64-beating £325 when it goes on sale in October.
There'll be no Linux option, apparently, only Windows XP.

Sets the screen and border to black.
Damn I'm good.
And two of the pics in the commodore PDF are EEE's ! Still want one tho.
I'd wager none of you youngsters can remember what this did on a Vic-20.
Since when have Commodore or Amiga ever made good business decisions ?
btw.. AmigaOS is still alive and very much in development
If a laptop/tot was released with Os4.1 > I'd be first in line to buy it.
Ps.. Paris.. Coz I reckon she's got better business sense than C= A.Inc Combined
If it's got an HDD its not an SCC
If there's no SSD then its not an SCC.
I think I'll stick an old C64 sticker on my Asus and run Frodo on it, thanks.
