I have completely missed this initiative and it sounds great so please tell a little more...

It's not something I've made public. I started the scheme about 3/4 years ago in an attempt to encourage talented developers to create new Amiga software or port existing applications to OS4. Initially I contacted Eyetech to purchase Micro A1-C's. Unfortunately, despite receiving a quotation from Alan Redhouse I was not able to purchase new machines as Eyetech withdrew from the Amiga market. As a stopgap measure I began buying used A1/XE's and Micro A1-C's off eBay and AmigaWorld classified to supply to various Amiga developers.

I contacted Troika and ACube for supply of machines and obtained agreement from Hyperion-Entertainment that they would support my Hardware Loan/Donation initiative. I placed an order for 10 SAM440ep machines (retaining one for my own use ) as soon as they became available. The other nine system have been allocated to software developers under the Hardware Loan/Donation scheme. I have just concluded an additional agreement, in conjunction with ACube, to supply a 10th system to a French software developer. Under the terms of all of the Loan/Donation agreements the developer agrees to produce his/her OS4 software application within an agreed time frame. If the software task is completed on time the loan system converts to a donation and becomes the property of the developer. In some instance the time frame is extended to allow the developer more time to complete the project.

All loans/donations are controlled by the terms of the agreement to which the developer, myself and Hyperion are co-signatories.

Why is it made from gold?

Its an ppc version of x86 hw without anything new or extra.


I was expecting an idiotic comment like it.

I have a SAM and probably i will not buy a new Amiga, but calling A1x1000 i nthat way just show your ignorance. This hw is designed from 0, cpu and also expansion board are very different from what the market offer. Go to play with your emulators and have fun.

I don't need to wait to see at this point it is Vapor. I'm not saying it won't come to be, but right now you can't even tell me the official CPU of this beast, so.....




I think you don't know exaclty what a Vapor products it is.

Do you have amnesia of how many false promises have been made to this community or what? There is nothing wrong with asking questions, it doesnt get us anywhere to be blind "fanboys" now does it?


Oh no you're back. It seems you finished with "Genesi is the future" propaganda and now start with "Amiga is doomed" propaganda.

I believe in Hyperion, i believe in ACube and probably i will believe in A-EON

@polka.

No, I wouldn't - as I posted, I'll care when the product is here. Up to now it isn't.

I take it as vapour if we have no more news by end of April. They should not of done any thing untill they had some thing to back it up a few weeks later. The tease was way to early.

How come? Maybe you should have just focused it on the SAM Flex!

Well, because it started years and years ago as a replacement case for the A1200 (mini tower box kind of shape) then the mini-itx SAM came out and I salvaged what I could from the original design to make sure the SAM fitted, then ACube (in their glorious wisdom) decided that a horizontal ATX connector wasn't a good idea so a more standard, vertical one was put into place but they forgot to solder the FPGA connector on mine!

I love ACube, I really do even though they drive me nuts sometimes!

then the flex came out...

Anyway who likes big switches?
