Commodore Computers to Offer New Gaming PCs

Hardcore PC gamers often resort to DIY (do-it-yourself) methods for assembling customized PCs for their gaming rig needs. But for those who do not want to delve into the world of homemade machines, preassembled computers are always available for the right price. Big names such as Alienware, Dell and HP offer a wide selection of gaming-centric computers. But a computer manufacturer, Commodore–which has not made much noise in nearly two decades–is planning on making a comeback with its own high-end PC.

Commodore was a big name during the early beginnings of the personal computer age in the 80s with its Commodore and Amiga lines. The "C64" was popular thanks to its relatively inexpensive price and wide library of games, but it was also considered to be the tool of choice by the hacking community. The Amiga went on to become well known for its capability of performing astonishing video editing duties with a third party product called the "Video Toaster."

Bala Keilman, CEO of Commodore Gaming, said, "25 years ago, Commodore launched the best selling personal computer of the late 20th Century, the C64, and defined the early computer games experience for millions of people worldwide. We are privileged and excited to bring the Commodore brand back to the gaming community and mark a new chapter in its history with this exceptional machine. We’re sure that it will deliver what gamers need and want."

The new line of computers will be shown in Germany at the annual CeBIT show, which begins March 15.
