Amiga & AROS "Hyperion Entertainment VOF and ACube Systems SRL are pleased to announce that they have entered into an OEM license agreement which will allow ACube to offer its customers an OEM version of Hyperion's AmigaOS 4.1 operating system for their SAM440 range of motherboards. Prospective customers wishing to beta-test the near final OEM version of AmigaOS 4.1 for the SAM 440ep will be afforded the opportunity to do so and will subsequently receive the full version. Orders can be placed as of now with ACube. A first public demonstration of AmigaOS 4.1 for SAM440ep is scheduled for the upcoming exhibition Pianeta Amiga in Empoli, Italy on September 27-28, 2008." Update by TH: Due to all the massive cheering and excitement going on in the OSNews Boardroom and our company yacht, we actually forgot to link to the official announcements here and here.

Yes, it is overpriced and underpowered. And the cost is not $400+. It's now actually over $700 just for the motherboard if you buy it from AmigaKit. And that doesn't include the copy of OS4.1, a case, power supply, monitor, mouse, keyboard hard drive or CD/DVD drive.

The legal issues between Amiga Inc and Hyperion also haven't been address so it may be very premature for people to expect bundled boards with copies of OS4.1
