Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

Good value in comparison to what? A Cray? If I do remember correctly, the Amigas that were actually worth owning (>A3000) were terribly expensive in comparison to PCs and were in about the same league as Macs. Of course they did have lots more bells and whistles than the PCs of the time, but those didn't come cheap. Peripherals were also expensive. This at least in the Americas. In Europe the gap wasn't that big, but there still was a difference.
