The Commodore 64, the classic personal computer from the eight-bit '80s, is making a comeback. Sort of.

Later this month, Commodore USA will be releasing a computing system that looks just like the original C64 on the outside, but comes equipped with modern specs like a dual-core 1.8 GHz Atom processor, Nvidia Ion2 graphics chipset and up to 4 GB of RAM.

When the C64 debuted in 1982, it cost $595 - the same price Commodore USA is charging for its updated machine. Mouse and monitor are being sold separately.

If you want a piece of this fully-functional nostalgia, you can preorder one on Commodore USA's website.
