Amiga & AROS As promised, Amiga Inc. has released the specifications of the low end Amiga machine which will be available this summer. It will have the Flex-ATX form factor, with a Freescale PC8349E SoC (400MHz to 667MHz depending on requirements and price target), one DDR2 DIMM slot for a maximum of 1GB of memory, and more. It will cost USD 489. Manufacturing partner and final ship schedule will be following soon. The device is supposed to run AmigaOS 4, but the recent developments may interfere with that.

I don't see any PS2 jacks on that board. Do you think they'll waste half of the USB slots for the mouse and keyboard? That would only leave two USB plugs for a scanner, printer, PDA, calculator, flash drive, DSL modem, cell phone, cameras, and GPS (assuming those peripherals can be used with AmigaOS in the first place).
