Hmmm, I do have an old C64. Since I don't have the PSU I don't no if it works... I could always us one of the 1541 dirve cases. I know one of those doesn't work and it has that nifty opening for the CD!

This will be my OS4 box until 4.2.

Its a great little PPC board... it should sell like hotcakes in the hobbiest and niche market.
Have you hugged your KennyR or Paul Gadd today?

Price is everything.  The EPIA's are a bit pricey themselves...its a good market though, not only are they lower in CPU horsepower, and less costly to ship, and less costly to make in terms of lack of expansion options...

but people pay a premium for them.  People will doubly pay a premium for a PowerPC design, well for some people that is a detractor, but for those of us in this market, its not.

BUT, BUT, it still has to be within reason.  
You all can decide for yourselves, but I say it has to be less than $300 U.S. or it will be priced out of the hobbyist market and into the hardcore-amiga-fan-only-maybe-there-are-2000-at-most market.

Looks promicing, and they have managed to emliminate slack out of it.
Now, if they can sell it in price that's attractive it'll have nice
chances on outside Amiga-markets too.

Before commenting much more I'd like to see bottom side of board too.
:-)

EDIT .. and of course.. Date of availablility would be nice (with
priice info). Otoh, I'm sure there will be more official info at the
time it's ready to be sold.

Must... own... immediately!!!

I'd pay almost any price for that board in a 1200-style case.

Looks like an expensive Pegasos with a buggy Articia still included.

Stunning.

Except for one thing:
 -Onboard Radeon good, but...
 -Onboard Radeon with no prospect of DVI panel interface...
   ... :-o

Seriously, that won't stop me buying, but it seems like an oversight that could reduce the longevity of the board.  Or is there a pin header for it snuck elsewheres?

(Remember that the good ol' DVI socket does reserve space for analog signals, so assuming one *could* be/have-been crammed in to the already tight board design, you wouldn't lose analog functionality; you'd just need a fairly cheap adapter, available at any Staples or the like.)

I'm guessing this should also keep the XE the 'professional' model for the time being.

Well, the black din connector next to the VGA looks suspiciously like an S-Video connector.  That could be a bonus for connecting to TV sets etc.
