Default 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!!

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

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 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.

It was only meant to be a joke, that maybe you had lost your glasses. I use glasses myself.

What Amigas do you have now?

Just get the gaming laptop and dual boot AROS. Problem solved and you got the best bang for your buck.

Well, I don't have a prob with that price of the X1000 since there are alternatives available. My 250 EUR laptop from ebay may lack a certain name but is about as fast as the X1000. Why bother with that X1000 then?

Does your laptop run OS4? Of course it doesn't.

Well, no. And I don't miss it.Quite the contrary: I have a very good and pretty matured alternative amigaish OS for that machine that runs all my old 68k legacy software OS-natively as well as quite some new software. I think it's just cool. But I understand that there are some ppl who prefer OS4 - but those have to deal with the limited hardware offers. Complaining isn't leading forward though. Deal with it or look for alternatives.

@zylesea

Exactly, there is no compelling reason to go to OS4.1, all the Amiga software I run is classic which is happy in a classic machine or Amiga Forever (which uses the same emulator for classic that OS4.1 does). Most of the new 4.1 apps are ports of Linux open source software. So what do I need the Apple chip in the X1000 for?

I can program an XMOS microprocessor better using a USD99 board on a PC than I can on the X1000.

Now what might be interesting is to pick up the abandoned PearPC code and try to make an emulator for 4.1, but I just don't have the programming skills for that....

There is no compelling reason for you to go to OS 4.1, but you can't speak for others. It is a great OS in the Amiga tradition. And if I enjoy it on my Classic and would love to run it on an x1000, then that is my prerogative. There are many type of Amiga users out there and let us decide what we want.

I've got no problem with that, choice is what it's all about. Are you using MorphOS or AROS btw? Just asking out of curiosity.

I use MorphOS (Mac mini, Powerbook and Efika). A good share of a particular OS preference is probably what you are used to. The "NG" systems aren't really new today and many of us chose a system long ago. I am using MorphOS for more than ten years now - soon it wil surpass my Amiga 68k user time (main system from 1989-2002).

Because it's the fastest OS4 machine money can buy.
