I don't know if you're serious or not, but where did you get the idea that the AmigaOne will use the KS ROMs?  The AmigaOne uses AmigaOS independent of Kickstart and custom chips.  If you want to run your older hardware-dependent software, plug in your 1200.

Yawn. We already knew that it's using the Articia S for northbridge and that the CPU is a PPC750. Where are the closeups of the southbridge and a detailed overview (preferrably one on which you can read the designer's/manufacturer's name)?

Looks real to me, congrats Eyetech! Very nice!

Perhaps future version could have some distinguishing feature on or in the case. The Plexiglas of the original design was kinda funky but it was distinct.  Just something to show at a glance it is not a Wintel machine.

I suppose any variation from “stock” cases will add some cost but I think the pay back will increase if it gets peoples attention, for instance, as that pass by a demo or some other public display.

The new iMac carries this concept to extremes.

Just my $.02

My my... I ordered one yesterday... Just can't wait till I receive the board. Does anyone here know wether or not I can use a standard x86 graphics board on the AmigaOne or I need one with a PPC bootrom like a Mac board? Yes I know Eyetech have mentioned something about it time and again, but just to be sure before I order myself a Matrox G550.
Kind Regards

No it won't be like a Mac gfx card. You should be able to use the PC Matrox or Voodoo. There is a chance the Radeon card will be Amiga specific, but I doubt that will actually happen.

A little anxious aren't we? I know the feeling :-D

I think this is very exciting.  New modern hardware that appears to be operating is a wonderful thing.  Now if I can just find out about the new software.  A browser with SSL and a good productivity suite would be a perfect start.

I wonder how many developer boards they have sold? I doubt we will find out though.
