It does look like a tidy compact system.  Apparently pricing will be
available starting in June.  

It should be noted that there's no real connection between this
Commodore USA, LLC and the old Commodore International, Ltd. or its
products, which are both long gone (dissolved in 1994).  This is a
brand-new firm, one of several over the years that have bought or
licensed the old firm's name and trademarks, in order to attempt to
revive the brand.

In this case, new firm Commodore USA, LLC is licensing the name and
trademarks from the current owner of those assets, Commodore Gaming of
Amsterdam, founded 2005.
