Commodore Amiga Mini
« on: January 27, 2012, 05:04:56 PM »
Sneak Preview of the new Commodore Amiga Mini is at http://www.commodore-amiga.org with a press release to be released sometime next week on hardware details and shipping dates.

No, this is not the big announcement.

The link to commodore-amiga.org site worked OK for me, just scroll down to the news section.

Pics look like a thin Mac Mini.  Do you know if it is roughly the same form factor?  I have a really cool USB/Fire Wire/Hard Drive Hub that fits right under my Mac Mini that would look sweet with one of these. :D

Doesn't look like the Dell mini, we installed a bunch of them in offices around the uni and they're more colourful.  Probably some chinese local market clone.

It's not a bad choice at all for the first Commodore Amiga being released in 20 years.

I'd like to see the specs and prices before I make any comments.  Hopefully it has bluetooth, wifi, and HDMI.

Oh, so it is an Amiga? Sweet, I can't wait to pop my Workbench 3.1 disks into the...into the...now just a damn minute here...

LOL, I must admit, that was pretty funny.  Floppies in 2012?  Hehe, guess one absolutely has to, they can buy a Catweasel.  I suspect only a few floppies will be readable after 20+ years. Perhaps once the C= Application Store goes online, some of the old software publishers could be convinced to put their software in the C= Application Store for a buck or so.

The majority of floppies I've ever encountered (not the vast majority, but still definitely the majority) read just fine, as long as they weren't kept in a garage or a moldy basement.

Anyway, are you saying that if I install a Catweasel in this thing, it can boot from my Amiga floppies?
