Finally some good news, I mean, FINALLY! And the price point isn't that bad after all, it's not what I'd call cheap but at least it's way lower than other PowerPC-based machines (Apple, do you hear me).

But you might end up moving to a more highly Amigan populated area  ;-)


True, I think I may be the only one left in this area though.  I'm trying to buy a house here too, hmmmmm...

I hope, I'll get one of those boards in my hands soon!!!
And I know some people who would return back to Amiga if good hardware is released.
Here's our chance!  :-)

I just ordered a developerboard from Eyetech... Gawd, it feels good... Just can't wait until I receive it... I'm not registered as a developer anywhere though, wonder if they'll let me buy one?

Whoppity dooo..... a new Amiga that BARELY scrapes the surface in performance compared to exsisting PC's and doesn't come close on the price. I am not impressed.

Welcome to economies of scale.

You buy an AmigaOne because you want a fast Amiga. Not because you want a fast PC.

Then why are you here? You are entitled to your opion, even though your opion will be viewed by most Amigans as wrong. Given the anonymous posting I think I can answer the question of 'why are you here?'

I'm so glad that I didn't give in and get a PC or a Mac . After all this time waiting it seems that my dreams are finally coming true. So what if the case doesn't have plexiglass portholes, chrome-plated grease nipples and twin overhead foxtails! With its nimble, responsive O/S and some creative applications it will rock! I just wish I could run Scala on it without needing a 1200 also. Does anyone think that this will ever be possible?  :-o

I like the idea and the concept. Don't know about it yet, though. I would like the hear what people think of it first and how well the software runs. Plus, I just upgraded from a k6-2 475 to a 1.4 Athlon T-Bird. Not much, but at least I can do some decent portfolio work now. I'd like to get one, but the money would make me have to wait til about Aug. to get it. Hey, that's MY brithday!

I wonder what it would run like? I would like to see what OS4 is starting to look like? Hmm, I have a 30 day return on all these PC parts.

ummm, like the convenient redesign on the A1200-A1 connection (not), meaning you have to buy one of their cases rather than is being able to mount in a power tower like a mediator. :-x
