I think it should have DDR3 and a CPU socket (since CPU module seem to be agreed to raise the price too much and tougher to implement).

DDR3 has until very recently been very expensive compared to DDR2. I know because I had to buy it for my main machine :-/

Sure, but DDR3 will be the standard very soon, it becomes a contradiction for them to market this as the ultimate Amiga system and not be up to current standards. At least one time we could have current memory instead of hunting for expensive outdated and slower mem.

Sure the website isn't as good as say Apple's but it is much neater than that What is X? shit  they had going, but nevertheless they should employ a web design agency to design the site from scratch.  Flash is pretty common nowadays on most sites and yes I know there are issues on Amigas not being able to show flash - albeit if A-EON and the wider Amiga community want new users they should use it extensively on their site.  There is always the option to have a Non-Flash site link.

The only real visible grumble I have about the current design is 1) the click to register for updates button is TOO close to the text above and 2) the blue Amiga windows have to go or at least updated for 2010 (and in Amiga OS 4.x).

On another note, I have managed to get AROS running through VMWare on my Mac and wow did Microsoft steal the task bar from it for Windows 7?  The way the windows/applications shrink down bares a great deal of resemblance.
It won't surprise me in the slightest if they did.

I like the website actually, certain the most professional Amiga website we've had for years (ever) and no sign of any crappy snowman applications ;)

Good points:
CPU (ok faster is always better, but it could have been a 1.6Ghz!)
Customised case, keyboard and mouse (branding IS important, even to a niche market like this).

Bad points:
DDR2, yes it would have been nice to release a NEW motherboard which supported at least the CURRENT memory standard.

Questions/strange choices:
How much memory does it actually support?  I can see they intend to ship it with only 2GB but it has four slots.  If it only supports 2GB that's a bit weak, if it can support more (eg 4GB, 8GB), why don't they just sell it as such (or at least offer it as an option, memory is cheap after all).  Over on AmigaWorld.net there is a suggestion that you can only access the full memory (eg 4GB) when using both cores.

And another thing, why does it have a compact flash port?  Seems like a waste of time to me.  Although they are great thing for an old 1200, it doesn't make any sense here.  Just provide an internal USB so people (who feel the need) can plug in a cheap multi-card reader that supports ALL types of flash memory.

Anyway, good luck to all involved.....hope you get this new HW out on time for a ‘reasonable' price and without any major bugs (unlike the disastrous AmigaOne launch).

:)

Yeah, just like Apple does, huh?  :hammer:

Love when you talk dirty. :laughing:

Anyway, I have to object to the customized case.  If the board is not some form of ATX, then the price will be unnecessarily increased by both the case itself and shipping of the case.

Oh um, that looks like a good way to get sued right off the bat; using the Monolith and other 2010 Space Odyssey cues.

Pretty sure those aren't public domain just yet.

AmigaOne X1000 specs:

Dual-core 1.8GHz PowerISA™ v2.04+ CPU ( not a power house )
"Xena" 500MHz XMOS XS1-L1 128 SDS (  won't be used for anything )
ATI Radeon R700 graphics card ( old )
2GB RAM ( not enough )
500GB Hard drive ( small )
22x DVD combo drive ( *yawn* )
customised case, keyboard and mouse ( who cares? )
7.1 channel HD audio ( standard ho hum stuff )
Ports and connectors:

4x DDR2 RAM slots (*yawn*)
10x USB 2.0 ( lotsa ports for all those devices that have no driver )
1x Gigabit Ethernet (standard stuff)
2x PCIe x16 slots (1x16 or 2x8) (ho hum)
2x PCIe x1 slots ( neet-o )
1x Xorro slot ( that's one hole that will never loose its virginity )
2x PCI legacy slots
2x RS232 (
4x SATA 2 connectors
1x IDE connector
JTAG connector
1x Compact Flash (who cares?)

So at the end of the day we have an expensive, "high end" ho-hum machine with an operating system that's less sophisticated than Windows 98. We should all celebrate how far Amiga has come over the years. Oh wait, it's not an Amiga, it's an "Amiga One X 1000" running Hyperion OS. My bad.

To loosely quote another guy on the scene, "I hope they make lots of 'em".

"Xena is not simply a strap-on extra..."

Whew! glad that's cleared up.
