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.

No.

The power8 chip on the talos board is just not comparable to the embedded chip on the x5000 board.

The performance of the talos is vastly superior.
They are not even on the same planet.

Yea I gather the processor is not in the same league. I am speculating if it would be a useful and lower cost/performance computer compared to the Talos. Even so, the X5000 remains a relatively expensive personal computer.

It's not relatively expensive.
It's _very_ expensive for what it is.

Just get an old powermac G5 for like 50 bucks. It would absolutely beat the pants off this x5000.
