Amiga & AROS

Many were waiting for the day when new and strong Amiga(One) will appear. That happened now. Currently, the X5000 can be purchased with the dual-core processor. In the future, a more powerful machine will be available. Is it worth buying the current model or wait for a four-core version?

A look at the new X5000. Note that the author is Polish (I think), and English isn't her or his first language.

I suspect the OP was referring to the fact that a modern Amiga is just stock (if a little unusual) hardware. What made the original Amigas unique was the specialist chipset. A modern Amiga is expensive hardware with an interesting OS.

Yup, exactly! It's a shame Commodore wasn't able to continue maturing their hardware. Would be interesting to see what would've happened.
