I would like to echo the "Great HW, Great SW, Stupid Price" comments above.


At some point you got to wonder if what people really want is everything for free.  :roll:

;-) This is good news indeed...

 :-( But it's a bit too pricey for me right now.  Perhaps in a few month's time I'll have saved up enough, but by then they may be out again, or there may be a cease-and-desist order or whatever.

It's about time. I'm happy for them. I hope that it works out, for the best. I can't afford one right now, but maybe I'll get one soon.


Cheers!

How did you get a coupon? All I got was a T-shirt!


It's a "virtual coupon".  :-D

Seems like Vesalia ran out of stock for the first batch of AmigaOS 4.1 and they don't have it right now. AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam is 6.05 Euro cheaper than AmigaOS 4.1 for AmigaOne, and is available for purchase not bundled with SAM, for the one who already bought SAM boards. With the SAM + OS 4.1 bundle, may be the price of AmigaOS 4.1 will go under 100 Euro (All prices I mentioned here are with 19% German VAT).

Flex version of the Sam440:

______________________________________

Is this the final spec for this board?
I notice that RAM speed is DDR100. The SAM440EP have DDR266, so the flex board might be slower?
And for exansions, I guess the EP board can be used with a PCI riser card to add more slots.

Hi, everyone.
I've been an Amiga user since 1988.
Had to move over to other systems for my 3D work (Maya doesn't work that well on an '060...), but kept checking on the Amiga all this time.
Now, quite fed up of waiting, I'd like to know if there is any reason to buy this system - if at all I can, since I don't seem to find a place to buy an AmigaOne, for instance.
So, if anyone of you has one of these new systems, please tell us how good (or bad) they are.
ThanX.

I think my official thoughts on this are:

If it was 1998 I would have been all over this. I would have had dancing bannana's and stuff all over the place.

Sadly, its the end of 2008. Spending $850 on a system that I would use as a hobby is just to much. I guess the giddy feeling the Amiga use to give me just isnt that strong anymore :lol:

WinUAE w/ 3.9 and MorphOS on my Efika are there if I need to run anything Amiga wise these days.
I spent less then $150 on both of them.

This is good news. Finally there is hardware to buy that can run OS4.x. It's a step ahead, and even though expensive, at least there is something available out there.

I also can't justify the current price at the moment, considering that the purchase would be for a hobby system, however I am happy that there is an option available out there should I want to get in on the bandwagon.

Excellent! Finally new hardware for AmigaOS that doesn't require emulation. This is good news.

I'm sure the system will be fine. AmigaOS is lightweight, so not much hardware is required for basic operations. For mathematical computations, you could probably check the CPU manufacture's website for the computation specs. Maya probably won't be ported to AmigaOS4 soon unless a company is willing to pay for the port in partnership with Maya; however, since Linux runs on the Sam boards and Maya works on Linux, the system could be used in a dual boot configuration.

How can that be, considering that MorphOS for the efika alone costs 150 euros?
