amigakit, you should really change the title of this topic, because people are thinking it's another stupid/bogus news again so they're not looking. please enter something like 'SAM440 and OS 4.1 bundle from Amigakit' to get the deserved attention. 'good news is here' is just too vague.

SAM440 is a PowerPC based efika-like board from Acube systems. Their site seems to be busy at the moment, so I'll give a link to google cache for specs ...

edit : can't give link to google cache, just google it.

Hmm I really wonder how this will compare to Efika with Morphos 2.0 :)

That IS good news but the price of a SAM440ep motherboard is $691 US at current exchange rates. That doesn't include the price of OS4.1, case, power supply, hard drive, mouse, keyboard, or CD/DVD drive. At that price I can easily get a COMPLETE x86 system WITH a decent LCD monitor.

Unless Acube and Hyperion can come up with some kind of discount/bundle then OS4 on the SAM will remain out of reach of most Amiga enthusiasts.

Nice for those desperately waiting for some hw to run OS4.x.
But not interesting for me.

Not that I'm complaining (Far from it) but what's changed in order to allow this?

Finally. A lot of people have been waiting for this. The sooner they get this out, the better. We need more users.
