I really like OrigenAE cases...  I was going to buy one for my own HTPC..

They are pricey though..  I sourced an OrigenAE S10V here in Australia for about AUS$650..

Very high quality construction..   and smooth lines.

I wasn't aware OrigenAE had a OEM manufactuer option?   I wonder if they're buying retail, and putting stickers on themselves?

Apparently CUSA can't count:

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the legendary AMIGA's birth.



Maybe someone should tell them 1985 was *26* years ago.

I know about the 'negative side' of Commodore USA but you have to admit, pretty slick website (by Amiga-land standards) and it's a nice modern case design across a range of machines so well done there.

Of course they don't look quite as professional as the 'new' X500 but you can't win them all ;)

Nice Ports on AmiNet!

No. It's just less Godawful ugly than their previous website. By any other standard it's just "pretty okay" in its look, and in any case it requires Javascript to display static page content, which is an automatic "you fail, go back to web-design school."

You and i both know that the only reason the sock drawer was created was because of Franko. Have you been there lately? Nothing in there.

Off topic. Why are there always American flags outside of shops? :confused:

Curious, I've been to America twice and they don't seem to have any more flags than we have in Australia.  I don't recall seeing flags outside blocks of shops, were you there on American independence day?

It is Florida.  It is full of tourists.  It is to let them know they didn't get off the plane in Canadia by accident.

In Texas they do it to remind people that despite the fact that almost everyone seems to be speaking Spanish, they are still in the USA.  :D

AHA! i told you guys so! It's funny you mentioned Texas because i was watching youtube last night about the cowboys new stadium and i wondered why there were so many flags hovering around. I'm glad someone believed me...

I don't really understand what's going on here. I haven't been paying attention for a while and now there's some new Commodore named company making Amiga named whatevers. Has all that business with the lawsuits and everything been resolved? I come back from not paying attention and McEwen's Amiga company is selling tablet style Amiga computers or something and then there's these Commodore guys in Florida (is redrumloa involved?) selling computer boxes called Amiga with "x" on the number. And, it didn't take them 10 years to pull it off, whatever it is. Can someone who doesn't hate everything fill me in?
