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.

Yeah I dropped $900 for a 32 meg harddrive for my Amiga 500.

$350 for the drive itsself
And the rest for the external enclosure and hang-on-the-side FastTrack HD controller.

$900 for 32 megs !!!!

We are spoiled now-a-days ;-)
