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.

Exactly, at that price it's as dead as always.

And for people who believe the chips are amazing or cost a lot to produce or whatever. They aren't and they obviously don't. They are nowhere near worth the additional 1000 £ ...


Now if they had made it unique in some other way but kept price low, as in 300 dollars or maybe up to 4-500 with power adapter then they might have had something.

Only the biggest of biggest idiots will buy this machine. (Or someone with more money and curiosity than care for the brand.)
