Amiga & AROS Big news from the Amiga world this weekend. That stubborn bunch are holding AmiWest 2011 this weekend, and it's been one heck of an eventful little, uh, event. Not only will the AmigaOne X1000 start shipping by year's end, Hyperion also announced something many in the Amiga world have been waiting for for a long time: an Amiga laptop. Update: Steven Solie, AmigaOS' team lead, also held a presentation about the past, present, and future of AmigaOS. The team is working on some pretty interesting stuff - protected address space, multicore support, USB3, new printing subsystem, and much more.

At this price only the most diehard of the remaining Amiga faithful will go for this. Even so, I've always got the impression that the remaining Amiga community consisted of a few brokedick Europeans, so that makes the ticket on this one even more baffling.

I've wanted a modern Amiga system for years, and could kind of kick myself for not getting a Pegasos when they were around. But this...no, no thanks. Not for the cost of a new entry level Mac Pro. Not for hardware that has 2004 specs. No thanks. RIP Amiga, I barely knew you. Long live NEXTSTEP!

You missed half of the news! The psuedo high-end X1000 is too high but the netbook they are looking at coming out with is predicted right in the $300-500 range.
