In that case you better setup a firm to remarket the original C64. Did you
know that the original C64 didn't have a diskdrive attached? Is one with a
diskdrive less C64?

I think it is a good idea to model the C64 to the modern ages, but we have
to keep the original design phylosopies in mind: Doing much with an awfull
little bit of technology.
so: We can expand my list of this morning with: 
-a dedicated sound processor capable of doing SID and WAV and MP3 (if
-a dedicated graphcs processor capable of displaying on a VGA screen (With a
resolution as high as possible!)
-a dedicated IO processor capable of providing DMA etc.
-a small proc capable of controlling all the HW described.

The main advantage is (again): If we want to expand, we can add a new
dedicated controller, and a new module in the kernal,a nd we are going.

My 2 cents again

Sure this is a good point, but...

...would the result be a C64, or even a Commodore any more at all? ;-)

(This just came to my mind, since I'm just having a debate with my friend
about speeding up a C64. For his opinion, a C64 equipped with a SuperCPU is
not a C64 any more.)
