No, new news is posted about different things from ONE company. If that qulifies as "over and over again" then every post put up is in danger if doing the same thing!

Update: I talked to Barry this afternoon, Press Release should be issued by the end of next week. This is giving extra time for technical testing to make sure things work as expected.

You don't have to be insulting about your disagreements with the new Commodore Amiga Mini. Commodore Amigas are going with x86_64 and eventually (possibly) ARM. If you want to stick with your Amiga 68K, more power to you.

You have no excuse at this point considering that these threads never appear on the front page anymore. The only way you could possibly be bothered from this is if you intentionally go out of your way to see this stuff. At this point you're just bullying.

Although, even better would be to anodize it that brown/green of the old A2000s. That was the best.
Agreed. The commodore label on the front looks out of place and detracts from the Amiga name. I liked the checkmark logo on the front. Only thing I can think of that would be better would be to make the whole thing half as tall.

Nice! They really got the spirit of the A1000 there. Please post a review once you have it up and running.

Is that image a poor Photoshop, or is the box a poor Photoshop? (In other words, is this another of their endless mockups, or did they finally manage to release a new product, and somehow forgot to parade around applauding themselves for it - at least on A.org?)

Lightbulb Re: Commodore Amiga Mini

This is a sham. The keyboard is clearly an Apple keyboard. I have been studying the Amiga keyboard for 10 mins and cannot find any difference between them apart from the labels for the Amiga keys and the function keys. The keyboard below is the one i am using right now and the two are identical. For example the "esc" key on the Apple keyboard is 1mm wider than the one below it and protrudes rightwards while being aligned on the left hand side. The keyboards are (almost) identical!

Edit: OK i found one difference.

Everyone I talked to said it's a photoshopped box.

Posters seem to agree

Oy. And CUSA continues in their long and glorious tradition of astonishingly poor Photoshop work...
