A product for the computer history geeks

Commodore is bringing out a 21st century version of its classic Commodore 64 computer – interesting idea but I’m not sure what market it’s aiming at beyond that of pure nostalgia.  It’s difficult to see how it can function in exactly the same way as a modern computer.  Of course there are plenty of retro products around (Roberts radio offers some fine examples) but they are usually instances where it is straightforward enough to devise something which is contemporary in function but from a past era in appearance.
