Oh well at least it looks like they will finally get it to retail (regardless of the high price) so congrats to all involved :)


It will be interesting to see what kind of demand there is for a high-end ($$$) Amiga system these days.....

If that is the actual price then my choice is made, I'll get myself a SAM460 because there is now way I will pay that much even for the most awesome Amiga ever built.

Well glad to see one in production, but the price is too high for me.  For that price though they really should have upped the RAM at least.  DDR2 RAM is cheap and anyone not in the Amiga scene won't even consider those specs when a PC with 4GB RAM dual core blah blah blah goes for about $450.00.  Anyways if I had the money to spend I would probably get one, but unfortunately for me I'm just not that loaded.  Maybe we will get a surprise and demand will sky rocket and prices would come down :).  Anyways I wish them luck with this system.

If that is the actual price then my choice is made, I'll get myself a SAM460 because there is now way I will pay that much even for the most awesome Amiga ever built.

Im a little conflicted here. On one hand I think its great that it's looking to be just around the corner now, but damn,... that price is even significantly more than initially touted. Also, why only 1 gig ram? 4 gig ddr2 is worth about $30 retail these days, surely buying in bulk (granted modest numbers for "bulk") is a little cheaper again. For something that starts at about $2700 surely adding a few gig (ie. an extra $15 or so) is reasonable.

Given the price of a case, gfx card, ram, harddrive, etc. that's sure one monster of a pricetag for a mobo+cpu (at least $2500,... all other stuff is worth next to nothing).

While Im happy for those that are interested it's obviously a very niche (as in double figures, low triple if lucky) item. The days of $3000 computers are loooong gone.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.
