Okay, here’s one more Core i7 ‘puter to announce. Commodore – yup that Commodore – has just announced the Core i7’s will be available in its rigs too. No new models, but rather just a new CPU options for the build to order computers. Prices start at $3,399 for the GX model line that includes dual 1GB ATI Radeon GPUs and a high-def paint finish but can shoot up into Trust Fund Baby price range with the XX model line that includes Core i7 965 Extreme edition and dual 2GB Radeon GPUs for $5,999. Kind of still pricey, eh?
