Since you are about to start production, what will be the retail price for the base retail model?



Hey dammy remember in early April when you said you sold out of the fist C64x production run in 24 hours? Remember?

But then later in May you accidentally posted a dancing banana post that the bottom half off the mold was almost done, so the first post we found out there was no "RUN" at all? Remember?

Then remember when you posted a few hours ago in June to troll Trevor while CUSA still doesn't have a production "RUN" complete? Remember?




Can't deliver C64x systems when promised? HEY LOOK E V E R Y B O D Y >>>>> VIC20 Time!!!!!

Sometimes I just wish everyone would grow the f*** up.

But then I remember that there'd be no-one left here... and I don't want to either.

Why are you bringing up something completely off topic? Just wanted to troll? I asked for a price for the retail box of a product he is producing, yet you gotta troll? What is your problem? You just hate it because the first production run (10K units) was sold out in less then 24 hours during Day 1 of when pre-orders were offered? Is that your major reason to troll? Guess haters just gotta hate.

Dammy you were so trolling and everyone knows it. Should we do one of those lists of 20 or so links to posts where you bash and laugh at the X1000 project and then sit in here and PRETEND to be interested? Ohhh how much how much!!


OHHH!!! You did do a run of 10,000 boards then? Where are those picture of the 10,000 motherboards laying around the "warehouse", the 10,000 keyboards, the 10,000 retail boxes? You never posted those did you? Shocking!

Honestly dammy, you do bring that on yourself, what kind of question is that?

Shall we ask Trevor about his production costs, margins, projected profit?

@realize

Well, the thing is massively delayed as expected by most. But eventually it may or may not come. It it comes fine, if not, well, then not. Who really cares. The train has left station long ago anyway.
Thing is: You should *never* give anything on promises and announcements. The only thing i don't get is why so many ppl still make those fanatasy announcements and desperately try to mimick a professional business, while it is a hobby/amateurish endeavour at best.

These pictures are not public, but I have seen them. It is real. Seeing that many motherboards is quite a sight to see!

Ditto and also why people bother spending their time making elaborate 'hoaxes' as we have seen in the past. Sad.

Good to see news on the X1000 front, hope they pull it off and that Trevor and company at least manage to cover their costs in the end. Let's hope the beta testing goes smoothly and the retail machines arrive sooner rather than later.

It is quite a sight to see.

As far as posting those images goes Dammy was waiting on permission to post them.

Last I heard, the A1X1K is going to be sold for retail. I was simply asking the man, who is producing the computer, what the retail price is. Yet to you, asking what he wants for his system is trolling?

@damocles

Do you really expect an answer after only 5 proof of concept boards were just built? borderline trolling if you ask me. I know c-usa will use the final price aganst a-eon to push their systems. You have no other reason to ask.

If there is ANY competence in that company they know it before even single board is made.

And they know that because . . .


the all-knowing all-seeing eye of Aeon has foreseen the price of every component they need for an unlimited number of small production runs well into the future.

Yeah, here's hoping. Alan Redhouse from Eyetech said it would have been cheaper to have given every AmigaOne owner 500 as a golden handshake/goodbye to the Amiga scene than trying to sell the machines themselves!! Tough market.

Which shows the stupidity to build custom hardware in homeopathic doses instead of supporting what's there.
Anyway, not all companies failed to sustain on the market, Genesi and Acube are still there, albeit with pretty different approaches.
