How does AI benefit from h/w licensed from Commodore Holdings (formerly Asiarim)?
Weren't we discussing C64x and VIC?

As long as these threads persist, I will persist in my vocal opposition to this crap. CUSA have been nothing but douchebags to the people in this community, they're selling underwhelming PCs in overpriced novelty cases as though they actually have anything at all in common with a beloved touchstone of '80s retrocomputing, they release dozens of incongruous and/or contradictory pieces of information, and all the while they strut around expecting to be hailed as King %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@! of %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@! Mountain for it. I'm not just going to smile and nod and pretend that none of this ever happened, thanks.

That's a surprisingly nice looking small PC, better than I expected.

The funny thing is that until the poll, I had completely missed these CUSA threads and went looking for them. Oops.

But Spammy is a perfect name for him and it's a lot nicer than some of the things I could call him...

Simple thing is, as long as Spammy spreads his speculation, rumours and unfounded statements then I like many others will respond to this BS in the manner it deserves...

If you don't like that then no-one is stopping you from saying so but you can't whinge about it when folk are only responding in a way that Spammy deserves to be answered to in his posts...

The VIC Slim? You can buy them from the manufacturer for $185. You have to provide your own Commodore sticker though.

Ah, but the C64x and VIC have Amiga emulation (UAE) which should include the ROMs which have been licensed from Amiga Inc along with "the Name". So, if you buy a C-USA product then you're indirectly funding Amiga Inc.

Yeah, I do like that version of the keyboard form factor better than the bigger ones.

Not saying I'll be buying one from anyone, but it doesn't look bad.

It does seem a little odd that the CTO has to go and check when prompted on details such as this. You'd have thought he'd have at least been involved in the decision making.

See, you're making the mistake of assuming that a decision has been made or that they're actually capable of making a decision.

Noob question here, since this isn't my field:
USB duplicators to an install stick or actual installation of Ubuntu onto the HDs...which would be the faster path?

Simply copying the install file(s) to the USB stick would definitely be faster.

..unless they were simply cloning hard drives from an image. That'd be quickest.

Thank you. That answers my question from the prior page of this thread.
I don't think HD imaging was in place yet, so if they are using the duplicator solution, it makes sense given their urgency to ship product.

Looks nothing like a VIC-20.
Looks %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!.
Technical spec is %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!.


Nothing new here then.

Hopefully the forthcoming Commodore Amiga will look better and be more technically interesting.
