AmigaOne is out of my budget league
 
AmigaOne X1000 is sold for 1,846.78 GBP or 2,269.62 EUR in AmigaKit. Isn't this a little bit too high for a computer?

Does this apply again to the very little market toward it kinda thing? I mean it cost $2973.05 US. With that price I can get the top of a line latest up to date gaming laptop!!

Yes you are right :) But are that a normal price? almost 3000 dollars for an AmigaOne?

ACR must be really, really, really young. Overpaying for Amiga gear since the 90's is an Amigan family tradition! :lol:

I was unaware of this. I have a partially sighted daughter so that's not something I would use for laughs.

Actually I am wearing glasses. But that font was not intentionally, it is result of copying and pasting price from XE currency converter website that did affect the font. However, let us return back to topic in hands.

Maybe so, but 3k for an Amiga is a little overkill. I mean call me crazy, but I am willing to pay 5K if it have the same amount of developers and software library as Linux community...and I am serious too. But since that is not the case...3K is too much.

I will take an Amiga 3000T to 1000 dollars instead if it was me. I have seen them in that price range.

So you will buy an Amiga 3000 T over AOne?

Yes maybe it is because i have always wanted an Amiga 3000T. Some say Commodore was at there prime when they released it, and it looks quite nice too, and there are not to many of them around. So it is a collector item.
