Ahem. For some of us, the X5000 is *still* *not* *yet* *available*.

@BoingBear

All good points.
I have been hesitating to buy an X5000 because I really want the four core version that is (hopefully) due to be produced in the future.

And I have a couple of MorphOS systems, so I'm already using NG.
I'd also like to build an AROS system, but my current X64 hardware isn't completely supported, so I'll need to buy some more hardware.

If the X5000 X4 iusn't produced fairly soon, I'll probably buy an X2 model just to be sure I get an X5000.

Unless the T2080 based laptop gets produced, I feel the X5000 may be the high point in our development and use of Amiga related PPC hardware.

Its bound to be a real collectors item.
And the price isn't that bad.

I bought one (2 core model) because I did not want to wait for the 4core version.
I don't regret the decision at all. Even with the beta version of the OS it's fun use and as stable as the X1000. Plus it does not have USB CFE bug wich makes it really, really, really, really annoying to use the X1000 with a KVM switch.

Pitty Marcus computer is not anymore, the Silent coolers he produced whould fit the X5000 too and are a pleasure to the ears.

@Amigo1

Yeah, I'd heard a few comments from people that had the early development boards that the cpu cooling fan was pretty loud.
I haven't seen any comments from people with a production board, but Amiga On The Lake has a replacement heatsink/fan that is supposed to be quieter.

If I start to get worried about the probability of the X5000 X4 going into production, I'll make sure to buy an X2 before they disappear.
Its a nice system.

This: http://amigaonthelake.com/amigaone-x5000-system-first-encounters-bundle/

Looks so much less cool than the concept art (subdued boing ball imaging on the case and so forth).

Trying to figure out the best place to purchase from... (have around $2k to spend)

AOTL is the best option for US customers. They add a lot of extras and are enthusiastic about the platform and I've read reports that their customer service is good too.

The A1222 is still in limbo. Announced, but not produced. Trevor says maybe this year.

So, would you recommend buying an X5000 or trying to find something used? (it won't be a primary computer...something fun to play with)

I don't own an AmigaOne system, so I can't offer any sort of informed advice. Someone who does will chime in shortly, I'm sure.

I run Amiga on Linux via FS-UAE.

As far as we know, the boards are producedů just waiting for drivers in the warehouse.

In my point of view X5000 is too expensive with all the Amiga NG limitations, so I┤m waiting for the A1222. However, if X5000 price is of no issue for you, it is without doubt the best OS4 system available right now.

AmigaOS4 works also under WinUAE, you may try it yourself (note WinUAE is sloooow in comparison to real AmigaOne hardware).

I wonder why they left the drivers in the warehouse?

I've considered getting an X5000 but it only looks to be 200Mhz faster than an X1000. But not five times faster with a 9Ghz CPU. Except for the X5000/40 which runs 0.4 Ghz faster.

On top of faster memory would make it faster again. But would it be much faster than my X1000? Can video fluently play in Odyssey?

After making my X1000 my main machine and retiring my XE until its problems are sorted out, I'm reluctant to give away AltiVec having just got it back, not that I ever directly make use of the thing.

I don't think speed is an issue here, as even this ten year old laptop could almost be comparable to the real thing, since WinUAE isn't emulating an AmigaOne but rather an Amiga with a ~200Mhz PPC expansion card.

QEMU doing a Sam 460 and now you're talking.

CPU speed is based on emulation speed, not performance of the original hardware. Emulated CPU is fast enough for basic work (cca 300 MHz G3 on my Core i3-5005U laptop in integer tasks), but GFX is slow and filedisk I/O and network even more sloooow.

Not working (yet) on my setup. However, CPU speed would be similar to WinUAE as both use QEMU PPC CPU core.
