By the way, what's that C64 box at the very end of this trailer video? http://www.commodoreusa.net/ redirects to https://myretrocomputer.com/. Was this planned as a modern C64, but for some reason became My Retro Computer?

EDIT: Ok, I think I figured it.
http://www.commodoreusa.net/ was site of this company https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_USA.
The Box in the video seems to be this product: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_64x.
Which eventualy became this product: https://myretrocomputer.com/.

That's about right. The C64X was sold about 10 years ago, and it was simply a Linux PC with a Commodore emulator included. 

A few months ago, the MyRetroComputer folks re started production of the chassis and keyboard, with some changes: the keys are different (a more traditional convex profile), and the case no longer has a CD-ROM built in. However, the keys still do not have PETSCII glyphs, and the F-Keys on the right are still system hotkeys, and not the traditional function keys. If there's one thing about the keyboard that I would change, it would be that.
