Geeks And Hipsters Rejoice: The Relaunch Of The Commodore 64

Geeks everywhere are piddling their knickers over the news that Commodore USA is re-releasing their iconic machine, the Commodore 64.

I'm drooling a bit-- it's the old design with the functionality of a modern PC.  From the section on the website detailing the keyboard:

"The new Commodore 64 features genuine Cherry brand key switches, which provide a feel much better than the original, with a lovely IBM classic mechanism and click sound. The keys are the exact same shape as the original and are color matched. No expense has been spared. This is the ultimate hackers keyboard on which to wield your key-fu."

This is both ridiculous and awesome.
