I was just checking out Acube's site and was thinking the same thing.  I have supported them in the past with my wallet, but I just could not invest in the SAM based on the pricing points they were demanding for both EP & Flex.

@ koafder

nah..the ship is stable and fine...the X1000 sales will affect the Sam sales initially but the Sam running OS4.1u1 is a great system for the average user without spedning the extra money for the X1000

I guess one way of looking at it is if the X1000 results in some cheaper SAM's for a 'period of time', then all is good in the world :)

Hell if they drop another 100 EUR I might even pick one up myself ;)

Nice Ports on AmiNet!

Yeah, Steve Jobs, if he were ever in this situation would be selling iLifeboats and tell you how wonderful they are compared to the sinking ship and how from the day they made the ship what they really had in mind were these lifeboats and we're all real fortunate now to be able to actually use them.....

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

ACube said they would go to another system later in the year IF they have enough SAM440 sales.  How many of those looking today to get a SAM440 can afford both X1000 and a new SAM440 plus a new system from ACube later on in the year?  In this world economy of horror, I don't see too many people being able to afford to buy two systems this year, let alone three systems.  That means they will have to choose between SAM440 now, wait till the X1000 hits in June ("Before Summer"), or wait to see what the end of the year, if anything, brings as far as a new system from ACube. Two of the three of the choices will not work for ACube.

Excellent deal, especially since Amigakit dropped the Sam.

Save a pile of money, grab a mac mini and MOS. MOS devs don't tell users they can all go and catch fire as well.

Hmm, but some of them might *think* something like this - but won't tell... ;-)

Amigakit recently sold out of Samflex boards so they temporarily took them off the web page but that does not mean they 'dropped' the Sam ??? where are you getting this info from anyway?
