This evening I have some good news from the AmiWest event in Sacramento, California.
Turns out that Trevor Dickinson of A-EON Technology and Matthew Leaman of Amigakit have announced a new range of Amiga systems. Nice!
I’ve embedded the presentation from AmiWest below for you to watch. 🙂 Enjoy!
They also mentioned an Amiga app-store.
Thanks for reading and visiting my blog. 🙂
This is really cool to see. I’m not an Amiga fan but to see someone produce such a retro system and make it new again is really excellent. I love hearing about this kind of stuff.
Thanks. 🙂 There is a lot of cool stuff happening in the world of Amiga these days, so stay tuned for more! 🙂
Low quality of sound and somewhat hysteric laugh make it not easy to follow. At least to me. But the news are more than interesting. The $1.2M deal and all the plans sound fantastic. Unfortunately I don’t believe I could afford such a machine… I wish I was wrong.
I am wondering who is the target here. I know there is a lot of Amigans all over the world. I can imagine a part of that large crowd might buy such a hardware platform. Is it enough however to make any profit from that? Just wondering…
You are not alone, I can not afford such a computer either. I wonder what the different models will cost. I see that AmigaKit has started selling the NEMO motherboard from the X1000 now and it costs over 2000 EUR. 😦 I wish they could launch an affordable, low-cost alternative. This would increase the user base quite a lot. Right now I can not justify going AmigaOS 4, so I will stick to classics.
