Default New Commodore Invictus from Commodore USA



Now that's more like it!!!!!!

I don't have specs for you yet.
(watch this space)
Commodore USA

But it is probably the same specs as what it looks like. :-D

I can confirm that it is ATOM/nvidia based
INVICTUS is the latin word for "Invincible".
It comes in silver too. It also has a stylus.
I do not know if it features wireless wiBand HDMI. I'll see if I can find out. EDIT: It has it.
edit: It has the Nvidia ION chipset, which is a newer higher performance graphics chip set.
edit: It will have 5-5.5 hour battery life. The LCD screen does remain ON when external video is running.

Nice... Certainly more appealing than the X1000 (or a fricken ipad!) - to me at least... :-)

Sorry for sounding negative, but please help me understand this - I don't really see what the fuzz is all about. It's just another PC running Windows.

It is likely to come with AROS as a standard boot option.
I don't know yet, if there will be C64 or Amiga emulation options.
I hope to see some.

Note, that the official launch has not taken place.
The best is yet to come.

Hey, why not just buy one of these to add to your current computer!?

I bet you can fit a C= logo on it somewhere.

Actually there is a fair amount of information about it:

You do realise that those Nanovision MIMO 7″ USB Touch-screen Monitors you linked to are the exact same resolution as the actual touchscreen on the keyboard?

...your point?

They're also movable and you can use them on a much more powerful PC, not to mention you get the whole auxiliary touch screen display experience (which is the only notable thing the EeeKeyboard offers) at a fraction of the cost.

Also, the image on the "Commodore" site appears to be a different unit, maybe a prototype shot or a cheap knockoff of the Eee unit.

I was kind of wondering how long it would take this idiot to rebrand this computer, since he's already got the cybernet and another all in one keyboard on his site.

I love the hypeup and make believe nonsense on the website. I wonder how long it will be until commodore international or whoever owns the trademark sues him and shuts him down.

Why buy this thing from this joker? Just to get a commodore sticker you stick on yourself? Your kidding right?

Only one review so far. They didn't like it....


11 of 18 people found the following review helpful:
A big disappointment!, May 19, 2010
By Tzu-liang Lo "findingnemo" (San Jose, CA USA) - See all my reviews

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS EeeKeyboard (Electronics)
i had high expectation for this product... but tried it for one day and i decided to return it. my reasons :

1) too expensive - basically it's a netbook, similar to Asus's Asus Eee PC 1001P-MU17-BK 10.1-Inch Intel Atom Netbook Computer (Black) or Asus EeeBox EBXB202-BLK-X0081 Desktop PC (1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, XP Home) Black (i have both of them, and 2-3 starts to both of them), so $600 is too expensive for a netbook (OK, it has ultra-band wireless HD, that's fair to add some $$ for it, but it has no display, which just balance off the wireless HD, so still expensive at $600);

2)loud - the wireless HD receiver has a fan that is loud, even after i have turned the tv audio volume up;

3)this is the most worse one : it can not even handle Hulu and Netflix videos, let along my 1080p mkv videos collections (impossible)

high expectation turned out to be a big disappointment... that's all i can say.

Further bastardization of the Commodore name. It's like those spam emails with the enticing title, only to find out that the body of the email has little to do with the title.

Its bad enough that I have to plug a larger keyboard into my iPAQ to make it usable.. Seriously is this supposed to be progress. Don`t get it. And certainly nothing Commodore about this sorry.

Where did the pic come from? It's obviously doctored badly in the bottom RH corner.

On the other board they say it's a Great Wall Cross PC U150 Ion-izes the Eee Keyboard

This is the original un-doctored image:



Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley
