Sorry, please learn to read:

"A 700MHz G3 (750FX cpu) version of the AmigaOne-
XE will be made available - at reduced cost - early in
2003."

Again people, READ the press release!

It doesn't make any specific dates for release. The only mention of the "December" date only relates to the pre-order offer, not any "release" of actual hardware!

Good grief, any non-negative press release gets you people gushing with overexuberance. Maybe I should just copy the press release and paste it here!

@strobe

Perhaps you should take some of your own advice and READ the press release!

The upshot is that we are taking orders for both the 600MHz G3-based AmigaOneG3-SE, and the 800MHz G4-based AmigaOne-XE, starting at the WoA-SE show on 2nd November 2002 - for delivery before Christmas (and, yes, for the cynics out there, we really do mean Christmas 2002!)

Sorry zackman, this is what it says in the release:

This means that the 600MHz G3 and the 800MHz G4 will be delivered before christmas, and the 700MHz G3 in early 2003.  The G4 *is* the -XE version.  If you're going to accuse someone of not being able to read, make sure you're not guilty of that too!

> Whoever posted this news would be correct if by "released" he meant "not released".

I can order it, and it will be delivered within a couple of months. That's "released", as far as I'm concerned.

> Please people, READ the press release instead of the misinformed clifnotes. There's nothing here to cheer for unless you love LinuxPPC.

Hmm...I'm assuming it's a lot like LinuxX86? Anyway, OS4 IS coming for this hardware, hopefully within a few months. No harm in getting the hardware in advance.

The discount is that you get AOS4 for free. Later you will have to pay the price of AOS4 (or go without it).

Well I have OS4 already so I won't have to torture myself learning Linux - mind you I should really learn it so I can take advantage of the apparent ease of Linux to Amiga Porting (when compared with win32 to amiga porting).

I can afford the G3-SE model, but if someone sponsor me I could have G4 and therefore my software can have altivec extensions!

Hmm as I read  that I realized I've become a cynic
When did that happen  :-?

Oh well I don't have that kind of money to burn anyways

It looks like I will be getting an AmigaOne XE with a 800 Mhz G4 CPU, together with the new Catweasel and maybe some additional software.

It looks like Santa has to be a little more generous than usual this year.  :-D
