>>That is the staging area inside a major assembly facility in China with boxes of C64x parts.

I see...It looks like a big place.
In China, so you order them over the phone and they get shipped over to the USA? How many Chinese workers there?

>> The other pic shows pallets of C64x CPU and motherboard.

So those are boxes full of C64x parts? And the other one is a photo of the pallets of just C64x CPU and motherobard? That is a lot of C64x machines!

Impressive, I really am impressed. Thanks.

Did you take the photos? How do you know?

I am really curious to know who took the photos. I love motherboards and processors, seeing so many it's a treat.

I believe all Atom (although not a big fan of Atom chips) based motherboards ready to go in the C64x?

That is a staggering, enormous amount of C64x motherboards! Respect!

Strange I see in a 48 hours a only 3 numbers missing. I see a strangeness when I go to a CUSA website also, I describe a below.

What I see a stangeness you say? I say Oh this a big big company, but the company no take a credit card? That is a strange. They only take a PayPal. I laugh till I pee a little. Why such a big company can process not there own credit card. Can this company that has so big a whorehouse to store all this product and make a prudction not afford to process a credit card transaction? In a japan my phone app process a credit card. Strange.


Seems like a big company take a credit card no? Why you only process a 3 orders in the 48 hours? How you make a money like this Mr. CUSA?

Digitex has said (source) that the pricing of a VIC Slim is below its cost of production, which is - as far as I know - called dumping (it could be considered an action against the law) how rude!

Funny, I see they take VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, bank debit cards plus I would guess, PayPal. Or did you think it was PayPal only because PayPal is the merchant account service provider?

As far as I understand it, the ODM in China ships it C=USA (and possibly direct to the major retaliers) via 40' containers so there is a steady amount of product in the pipeline. I will confirm with Barry about the FL company that is doing about equal amount of production work.

No clue, I do know who it is, they are a very well known name. Barry was extremely lucky to have such major connections for them to do agree to do the work.

Yes it is alot of C64x machines and it's only a partial of total production capabilities that Barry has lined up. Leo has promised he would try to get a video of production online this coming weekend or the weekend after that. Not sure what facility the video takes place in.

No clue. I only have numbers shortly after the April 5th launch with Disney's Tron Legacy.

What was I on about, the motherboards are from Jetway and it turns out that the pic are not even related to CUSA anyway.

The contract is obviously worth a lot of money. Luck has nothing to do with not being foolish enough to turn such work away.

I guess the luck just ran out.

@ mods

Why are these threads about a low power PC in a C64 reproduction case, being given server space on an Amiga forum?

Because they will generate funds to develop a new Amiga line of computer, gather
most of Amiga licenses inside one corporation and bring the Amiga as it should look
by now by the rules of technological evolution.

@ddni

Why are you posting about Amiga in the General Technology forum?

Seriously though, they're allowed to post in this very forum (General Technology). It was a decision staff took quite a while ago, I'm surprised it's still being questioned.

@WolfToTheMoon, damocles (Dammy), eXec etc...

>>I know because some of us over at c-a.org have seen them a few weeks ago.

I see...that makes sense. You have seen these photos before haven't you? Interesting, very interesting...

So what have we got here:

1) Those photos are of "the staging area inside a major assembly facility in China with boxes of C64x parts."

2) "The other pic shows pallets of C64x CPU and motherboard."

3) Photos taken "Probably a few weeks ago, maybe a month."

4) "As far as I understand it, the ODM in China ships it C=USA (and possibly direct to the major retaliers) via 40' containers so there is a steady amount of product in the pipeline.

5) How many Chinese workers there?
"No clue, I do know who it is, they are a very well known name. Barry was extremely lucky to have such major connections for them to do agree to do the work."

6) "Yes it is alot of C64x machines and it's only a partial of total production capabilities..."

Somehow I am not convinced...still not convinced...why?

Because I thought about it. I was sure to have seen those pictures somewhere else but I couldn't remember where...then it came back to me.

The photos were the other way round, now I remembered, I have seen those photos before but they were the other way round, as mirrored!

As if someone had saved them on the hard drive and mirrored them (flipped them) in Paint or Photoshop but where did I see them? Where, where?

On the Internet! Oh my! Who would have thought hey?

So if I am not mistaken, I could well be, as my memory doesn't serve me right at times...

This seems to be what we have, really:

That is not "the staging area inside a major assembly facility in China with boxes of C64x parts." but

Fujitsu factory in Augsburg, Germany.

Those are not boxes full of "pallets of C64x CPU and motherboard."

and the photos were not taken "Probably a few weeks ago, maybe a month."

I can't see any Chinese workers, I couldn't be bothered to look to be honest, but at first sight I can't see any.

Those are not "alot of C64x machines and it's only a partial of total production capabilities..." because.......

that is the Fujitsu assembly line in Germany, Europe.

How can those photos have been taken "Probably a few weeks ago, maybe a month."? It would be impossible because they were taken in 2009. How do I know?

They are here, a nice article from 21, September 2009, straight from:

http://www.pcgameshardware.com

In 2009 pcgameshardware were invited by Fujitsu in Germany to see the plant, assembly line and testing facility. You can find all the photos on their site, you might even get some more.

Strangely there are two photos very similar to yours, although flipped the other way round.

I am asking how is it possible that two photos of two different places, at different times could be identical? This really makes me wonder, it is a space-time dilemma.

Article:

Link

and the photos by Marco Albert (author of the article in pcgameshardware.com) 21, September, you might want to read it.

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/&menu=browser&mode=article&image_id=1193065&article_id=695593&page=2

any similarities? See if you can find yours:

http://www.commodore-amiga.org/forum/27-commodore-usa/4554-cusa-customization-section-photos?lang=en#4574

I don't know what to say, maybe I am wrong, but there is a lot of explaining to do.

I am ok with being taken for a ride once in a while but thinking that I am an idiot then no thanks.

I am offended and deeply disappointed.

And with this I say goodbye.

@TheDaddy

oh. my. god.

this is unbelievable. unless their suppliers fudged the photos, something is hugely wrong here. thank you for your work on this. i'm genuinely surprised. i suppose i shouldn't be, but i really trusted barry after his notes to me. couple this with the incredibly unprofessional fora replies lately from CUSA and i think i'm done with this.

i shouldn't have been taken in. now i know why everyone is so skeptical of anything new in the amiga world. wow.

edit: i'm going to calm down and hear out their explanation on this one. i've requested they respond in the original thread at commodore-amiga.org. maybe their 'partners' sent them these photos on false pretenses? i really hope so. can anyone think of any other legitimate explanation?
