The new C64 looks exactly like the original, but with modern-day internal components. Where the original had 64 KB of system memory, quite impressive for the time, today's version sports 2 GB of DDR3 memory, expandable to 4 GB. The new model also does away with the 1.023-MHz MOS Technology 6510 microprocessor and replaces it with an Intel dual-core 525 Atom CPU and an Nvidia Ion 2 graphics chipset.

' Other modern components within the classic design include five USB ports and an optional Blu-ray disc player. The price starts at $250 for just the retro chassis; buyers have to install their own motherboard and components. Fully assembled models range from $595, the same price as the original, to $895.
