Just got my copy of Amiga Future today and on the last page their an interesting advert by Acube, it a pic of book with Top Secret written on it and a Page hanging out with just 500 on it and small pic of boingball demo with September 19th 2011 written any one know more?
Guess
X500 case, sam460 drops to £500, Sam500 announced, laptop sam version, fpga A500 emulation on Sams, somthing to do with A500.. .....

Update
hope this is alright, a little pic of the advert

Anything you describe not worth to be "TOP SECRET", because not important so much to be classificied as "TOP SECRET", except only one: Laptop.

We really need any kind of laptop, be it old mac ones, or new from acube, not so matter in general. But i fear we get our hopes to high when wait laptop from simple image :)

A little over 2 weeks isn't long to wait.

Also is this date for the release of something or the date of an announcement for something?

Dunno .. But after a bit more speculation with myself, i found pretty logical to release sam500 after sam460. Maybe it will be the same sam460, just with some fixes and stuff. I just see that boing ball jump on somekind of monitor, so, nothing which directly on inderectly point on laptop.

I also bought laptop - Dell Inspiron, with part of the money saved from the AmigaOne X1000 purchase. But it's not an Amiga for me, whatever OS I put on it.

Your point exactly being?

I really hope SAM based laptop is coming. Then I will get my Amiga laptop with me, when I need to travel, which happens a lot lately.

An amiga Laptop/Netbook would be way too cool.

My guess is its more than likly a small price drop for Sam systems

Maybe the sound drivers for the Sam460 and the drivers for the ATI Radeon cards and we can use these cards and chips and the 3D.

Announcement of a Sam500 ... maybe a Sam460 with a Chip that has a 40 at the end ...

But I could see the Boingball demo there, maybe they finally made a new version of their Minimig board.

They picked up the Moana project again, and calling it "something500"

Some emulation for OS4 to run Amiga500 stuff....

Some addon/PCI board to run old Amiga stuff, maybe the minimig on a PCI card

An Amiga tablet! Called the Samlet.

Maybe it's their own board to compete with the X1000?

I would put my bet on a lower cost dual core powerpc motherboard.
indeed Amigaone X500 would be a good name.
