It did make me smile. But as noted in the article, it isn't the same company; just the name.

I kinda thought they were still around in some capacity, but that didn't surprise me. Oh well, I'm waiting for the Atari 800 netbook anyways. Wink

I can't see the photo very well, but take a look at the "C" the placement is similar to the placement of the nostalgic Commodore logo.

I bet they will get quite a few sales based on the name. The Commodore name had emotional attachment to many of us.

How peculiar. I was trying to imagine somebody bringing out a notebook under the "Sinclair" or "Acorn" brand-name.

And then I found out that someone has already done it. Shocked
