"Remaining revision 2 boards will reach beta testers during Q2..." so thats anywhere between 25-86 days away. So if all goes to plan the Amiga X1000 will be available to buy May/June. Pg. 17 of AF.


Well, no. You didnt count beta testing.

You're forgetting that they have no trouble in selling hardware with OS that doesn't provide all of the needed drivers and functionality(Sam460). So, it could be on sale by that time... at least they'll have a bigger beta testing team  that way:)

Great to have news sounds promising that the board is working and makes sence to
do this step with linux work with base know os , that way can discount any glitchs that
chould be software related, hopefully the beta testers will be informed whats going on
and when they can expect there boards . am not a beta tester

exciting times as for negtive cooments comparing to a1 boards never owned one
but basically l owned phase 5 blizzrad card and whould brought a A1 mb
but the stop making them when had money actually micor bard looked my thing
am sure the Mr redhouse  behind the baords did his best no point going on about errors made , l actually read where said it whould been easier to give the people ordered them
a good amount money and just leave it of course he honorned his commiment and produced the boards a good amount l belive and they alot in use today

Know to the x1000 amiga sure Mr dicksion and his team will do there best and be
great design give them time though , there not apple or microsoft
and microsoft desined a flawed design in xbox 360 and took many years to correct
so dont theink any design is perfect , but also sure x1000 will work fine

ditto my ps3 60gb has also after many years come to show faults with its orginal design
also many amiga models had mb revsions and they had way bigger desisng team
well l assume so l did watch dave hyne interview recently very intresting
end the day people are not perfect none of us

But am really excited about this news and hope to see maybe be x1000 owner
One day maybe run my Cnet bbs software on one even have freind design a card or software to run on xena chip , after all he managed to program for usb with no previous exp for commerical company his company is contracted to work for.
aprently the prsevious inhouse peop-le been trying fo months and he did in 2 weeks
he uses pic programer at present and has done many led desisns and circuit baord
designs himeslf so power of one person dont discount.

I wish them the best, I really do but this whole computer,it just seems ludicrous all together.
 
First of all, the specs were shit compared to x86/amd pcs when they announced the specs how long ago?  Now its a year behind their announced release date and they have linux running on it, but not os4?

I can buy a 3ghz  dual core dell on ebay for 50$ thats as fast as this thing, faster maybe because it can use both cores.
 
2500-3000$ for this thing is ludicrous, and apparently by the time they actually release it I can get a 12 core intel/amd machine for the same price, running linux of course, with all drivers, and all 12 processor cores working.
 
All of this, plus the "timberwolf" port of firefox is no where near completion, meaning you can't even view youtube (or many other modern sites) on os4. Wait, you want us to pay 3,000$ for a computer that can't do what my phone can do?
 
NG amiga? NG amiga is a nice idea, if its affordable.
 
Make mine AROS or MorphOS. At least those platforms are affordable (And both better to if you ask me, even if you take the cost of hardware out of the equation)

I can't help but to get a déjà vu feeling from all this: It sounds like AmigaOne SE all over again.

In fact there isn't much news about X1000 itself here at all. X1000 boards being delivered to the beta testers would be real news. Well there's still 3 weeks left of Q1.


Oh come now Piru, You know deep inside everyone wants a $2000.00 PC that needs Linux to fully utilize the Hardware. I mean, Yeah you can buy a Intel quad core PC for $400.00 and do the same thing but it doesn't have the Boing Ball Logo. hahahha

Trevor says everything is going to plan, so expect a June 2010 release.

I don't like to be negative, but I think it should be pretty obvious to everyone that the X1000 project has gone more than a little astray.

I still hope that it will be available for retail one day but the longer it drags on, then the less likely it will actually happen.  This venture was always a little 'out there' but it still would have been nice to see it delivered on-time, on-budget and fully supported.

yes but you dont have to buy it do you.

And the whole point the X1000 Like mr dicksion said was for him to have a modern amiga

after that point its up to inviduals to choose what they want

bit silly comparing a old mb of ebay fir start its second hand l got old pcs here too

but if l want to run Amiga os 4.1 l need to buy a combaible mb just like l have to if

want mac os x

To be honest with alot people whould never support os4 anyway no matter what
you gave them just human nature , remmber back in the day people complaining
they didnt have wb 3 hd but did nothing for themselves to change that.

I have mac mini G4 l brought it just so l chould run Morphos it was cheap option with 400 nz then first one broke down (broken mb ) cost 300 nz plus not worth it

brought another one that was 300.00 nz so total so far nz 600.00 thats along way
to new sam 460 mb , am afraid nothing like buying new machine.
I found in past even with pcs , which never owned new one, always made them from new parts mind you. who wants other people probs.

so Know got mac ppc L still want os 4.1 machine WHY because l want run my old cnet
4 bbs software , and l know it run because l ran on my blizzrd ppc card b4 sold it

and to be honest with you l dont really like mac linux or windows thats
why want a amiga modern machine running os 4.1 l prefer to spend nz 2000 if thats what it takes
and done this in past on my blizzrd ppc 240mhz scsi bvison combo and that was in 1996 prices

so my choice to me that makes more sence to spend big and get what you want than dick
around buy this and that and end up not happy because you know in heart x1000 a better
machine in long term

so to me l have least put my money where my mouth is l dont compain about blizzard ppc
card loved that board okay some things werent done but l glad brought it hell yes

To me still remember fondly reading up about the ppc and amiga was exciting days chouldint wait
for come out seems like year maybe more , but really commited your wait.

The ps3 was the same for me it was surposed to be world wide release yet here nz we had wait
months while americans got it first , when first got was dispointed with to be sure mind you felt
that way about my 1200 too , things are always sorted hyped in your own mind too.
I just made the most what l did enjoy about this machine media blu ray etc uploading pics
my son to the net via facebook so user friendly comapred to pc Play tv etc psp great
but chould look ps3 or esp psp as bit of lemon games wise anyway esp psp but l amde use what
l can do with not complaining winging hehe

okay l had my rant for month promise
oh ps thank you to people run this site for years of supporting amiga
hehe

@Actung bab. The last few posts you have made in this thread have been hard to understand as your typing is really bad. It's almost unreadable. So maybe you could proof read your posts so they are more readable? :)

Great to have news sounds
One day maybe run my Cnet bbs software on one even

Hope the x1000 sees the light of day.

For the record, CNet BBS SW runs pretty good on the PPC/OS 4.1 machines.

Now if I could just get ahold of the author to SELL me a copy, I'd be happy.
