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.

...and it's a sad comment about the state of alternative operating systems in 2010 when a new Amiga makes my heart palpitate, only if it's because we all know how this is going to end.

Nonetheless, I want one.

According to the article, 1500 pounds and you can have one.

Would come cheaper to buy common x86 HW and program OS yourself. But some nutcases are willing to pay 100 dollars for tap water bottle so nothing new to feel "special".
