Commodore Announces Amiga Mini

I remember playing Pac Man on the Commodore 64 back in the day. You had to load the game off a cassette tape. I also remember editing on the Amiga Video Toaster over 20 years ago. A lot has changed since then, including the developments offered at Commodore. Check out their newest addition: the AMIGA mini.

The box looks like the earlier versions of the Mac Mini when it had an optical drive. Yes folks, the AMIGA has a blu-ray optical drive along with these tech specs:

  • MODEL: Commodore AMIGA mini
  • CPU SUPPORT: Intel i7-2700k 3.5 Ghz Quad-Core (3.9Ghz Turboboost)
  • MEMORY: 16Gb RAM DDR3 1333MHz
  • HDD SUPPORT: 1 Tb SATA Hard Disk Drive. (or optional 300 or 600 Gig SSD)
  • NETWORKING: 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet port
  • WIRELESS: 802.11n (300 Mb/s) WiFi. 2 Antennae

The computer sells in several different package options including the barebones chassis w/ blu-ray drive for $345 all the way up to the i7-2700K 3.5Ghz with 16GB RAM and 600GB SSD drive for $2990, which also includes the Commodore OS Vision pre-installed with 2 restore disks. There’s also room for 2×2.5″ hard drives.

The base model price has been reduced by $500 overnight since its introduction noting consumer outcry.

Commodore is also introducing a new slim keyboard computer. From Commodore:

It’s hard to believe it’s a Computer at all.

If you thought computers had to be big, bulky and noisy then you’ve been mistaken. The VIC-Slim is a fully functional computer the size of a standard full-length keyboard, capable of running modern PC software. Despite its diminutive size it packs a lot of punch, featuring Intel’s new 2.13Ghz Dual Core Atom D2700 processor, fast DDR3 memory, and integrated WiFi (802.11b/g/n). Simply connect this computer keyboard to any TV via HDMI or any size computer monitor and you’re ready to run.
