Commodore USA Finally Announce Prices for New Commodores

As mentioned in the TRON: Legacy review, Commodore USA included an advertisement for their new line of computers in the movies packaging. It turns out this was done because Commodore USA was using the launch to re-launch their new website and announce prices for their much anticipated Commodore PCs.

The pricing is as follows:

Commodore 64 Starting at $595 USD
Commodore VIC Pro Starting at $895 USD
Commodore VIC Slim Starting at $395 USD

So what do you think? Will you buy one of the new Commodores? Did they get the pricing right?

    Yeah a puppy would be good. It will play better and last longer. :D

    Also I have seen some blurb on why they are charging so much for the systems. Apparently it is costing them a fortune to make the OEM parts. But you can buy just the case for a small $295.

    Might go out and buy me 10.
