Two new µ-A1's models on the way
« on: August 28, 2004, 06:59:57 PM »
Eyetech website has been updated with some interesting news. There will be two different MicroA1 models, the C model (commercial) and the I model (industial).

Also a case, designed for AmigaOne is on the way, if Eyetech solds a good number of units. The complete news (also referring to XE and XC models), specs and others on Eyetech website.

I think this looks very promising.  The price is still a little high but I can finally afford it.  :-D

The one thing that's a little bizarre is the industrial version is more expandable and less expandable at the same time.
Amiga 500 GVP A530 Accel + SCSI2SD + 8 MB RAM and OS 2.04
Amiga 1200 GVP \\\'030 Accel + 32 MB RAM and OS 3.9 BB3
Amiga 4000 Cybervision 64/3D Mk-II + Warp Engine 4040 128 MB RAM and OS 3.9 BB3
Micro A1 866 Mhz and AmigaOS 4.1
PowerMac G4 1.4 Ghz and MorphOS 3.9
Mac Mini G4 1.5 Ghz and MorphOS 3.9

is it just me or does the Industrial version seem superior for just a minor amount more (50UKP)?
i'd prolly end up going for one of those then!

Depends if one needs firewire & PC/104 and doesn't need an upgradeable CPU.

FireWire is useless on Amiga until there is FireWire stack too.

Does the commercial model only accept 256M RAM?  And, what's the draw here just smaller size?   There's (much) less expansion, less performance, and the same high price.  What are they marketing to?
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

@ itix
Not for AmigaOS, yet.

@ adolescent
Less performance? You can use a 1 - 1,25 - 1,4 ghz G4 on the Micro, as in the XE. When they will be available (The Frieden bros already have them in their A1s). MicroA1 is for who want to run OS4 in a small and cool mini-itx, or for industrial use like a webserver for example.

I was intending to stuff one of these into a 1200 case as a low-end complement to my A1XEG4, but they're awfully expensive for a low-mid-range board. I'd rather have a socketed G3/600 for such a setup. It'd probably be much cheaper, too.

The pre-assembled dealer systems do sound appealing, though.

Once the boards start shipping, or some pictures emerge, I'll give them another look.

Wow, for a G3 the price is high! One at $600 and the other at $700? Did you also notice OS4 IS NOT included in that price? Thats another $110 isnt it? I was thinking it would be a G4 and come WITH Os4 at these prices at lest. So what will a G4 upgrade be? Another $300 or $400 like the Mac G4 cards are? Look slike I will end up passing this time arround too.

Eyetech should be taking a step forward, not 2 steps back  :-? Radeon 7000? G3? Your not getting much for the money here. What is going on?  :-?

The CPU is not technically a "G3" from what I
hear.  The micro-A1 cpu is made by IBM not
Motorola, and is suppose to be better than
a Motorola G4.  I guess some benchmarks are in
order.

One forward two back?  You've got that right.  I've got an ASUS ATI9200 card here that cost me a whopping $40USD.  You can't convince me a whole generation and a half worth of chipset would have raised the price that much further.  Sheesh.  What ever happened to the Amiga being cutting edge?  (Wait - that went away about 1987 or so.)
Back away from the EU-SSR!
