Where is the "big announcement"?  


On tract, just taking longer then some had expected.    Lawyers get paid by the hour after all.

That's no excuse.
Product announcements aren't a legal contract.

Possible customization changes to the Commodore Amiga Mini: http://www.commodore-amiga.org/forum/5-commodore-amiga-hardware-wishlist-/10991-cusa-commodore-amiga-concept-designs?limit=15&start=135&lang=en#12190

I think this version is much nicer looking.

Are you joking? You have to be joking, right? What the hell else would it be? Either you don't actually have any idea and you're pretending like you do, or you're playing coy for no reason. Either one is annoying and isn't helping your favorite company one bit.

Also, embossed logos and laser etching? On a prefab case? Get real.

So you have the same opinion on the A1X1K and the A500X cases since they are also prefab cases?

Get rid of the Commodore label, stick with the chicken lips on top, and a checkmark on the amiga, perhaps offset it a bit, and its not bad at all.  I like the brushed aluminum look.

Although, even better would be to anodize it that brown/green of the old A2000s.  That was the best.

I can't even remember what they're supposed to look like (i.e. whose case they're bulk-purchasing,) but yeah, I'll stick with that opinion. Etching and embossing a generic Mac Mini knock-off case is like putting stickers and rims on a Honda Civic.

(Unless you're referring to the X500 aluminum-case project? Because that sure as hell isn't prefab...)

This mobo is a candidate for a C64x Titan(?) though.  
Just trying the name on for size....how do you go beyond "Extreme", than start naming after a class of Gods!  
The new C64x - it's named after beings whose leader ate his children!

Ok, people are starting to nit pick and put words into other's mouths now.  Stop.

If you have something new and RELEVANT TO THE THREAD that you can share in a civilized way, by all means do so.

So please let's simmer down a bit.  It is WELL established how polarized this subject makes people that you don't need to state and restate it over and over again.

No, new news is posted about different things from ONE company.  If that qulifies as "over and over again" then every post put up is in danger if doing the same thing!

Update:  I talked to Barry this afternoon, Press Release should be issued by the end of next week.  This is giving extra time for technical testing to make sure things work as expected.

You would be wrong then.  Commodore Amiga is their future, if you don't like it, don't buy it.

Do you even have the slightest clue what an amiga is? i say NOT.

You don't have to be insulting about your disagreements with the new Commodore Amiga Mini.  Commodore Amigas are going with x86_64 and eventually (possibly) ARM. If you want to stick with your Amiga 68K, more power to you.
