@fingus

I think the FPGA on the 460 is the 5k xp2, not much for the MiniMig core.. Anyhow, hope I'm wrong!

@Shufflepuck

Perhaps the FPGA expansion connector could be used to extend the FPGA.

Would be really cool if they released a new Sam in a wedge style case, and could duel boot between OS4 and a FPGA classic mode for retro gaming and workbench stuff..

I don't get why you're being so defensive about laptops vs towers. ... I like a laptop personally, but I like to be browsing the web on the sofa, not sat at a desk in a spare room.



That's what I was trying to bring across: Everybody as he likes. He just sounded as if he only likes AIOs or laptops - and I just wanted to point out to him that others (like myself) may have other preferences. No idea why this little spitfire feels so upset that all he can do is to answer with personal insults and threats.

Compared to his personal attacks they actually WERE innocuous...

I'd be amazed if it were laptop. The '500' name wouldn't make sense, and it's too much work to get OS4 supporting it. Given the situation with Sam 460 drivers, I think this project is going to be on familiar ground.

It's probably too early for a next-gen Sam, but you never know. Could be the upcoming FPGA Arcade but as a Minimig follow-up, '1200' would be a better number. Like others, I'd guess at a keyboard-case Sam.

Fully agreed.

Ignoring the flame-fest, this made me laugh:

As long as you know the difference between "public transport" and "tourist rides" I don't mind...

Yes that was obvious from your replies... not! Besides I never wrote that everyone should agree. It should be obvious that since I am the one writing it is my thoughts and my opinions. If you find that too hard to handle you got problems.

Threats? Well Mr Kung-Fu, all I have to say about that is people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

Now you're making excuses for your bad behaviour. You got grandchildren and that is how you behave? Wow... they really got someone to look up to.

Like I wrote, if you don't understand my points and assumes something that you make up in your head you could ask if that is correct. So far it has not been.

judging by the boingball demo pic, it is probable that Acube stroke a deal with Cloanto - from now on the Amiga Forever's gonna be included with every board sold

I'm guessing Acube got a license from Hyperion to rename the Sam board to AmigaOne X500 and a "Boing" sticker will be slapped on every newly sold Sam.

@hotrod & Dandy

If you can't be civil with each other at this point I must ask you both to take your disagreement to PM. I can't imagine why your disagreement is already to the point of talking about the potential of physical violence. Thats just nuts. If either of you have any comments or questions to what I wrote here PM me, do not post a response in this thread.

Thanks.

ACube has acquired the rights from Loriano to build the new X500 custom aio / retro inspired cases for the Sam line.

See Acube what your little PR stunt does to us here! - these guys are almost in a fight because of a discussion about form-factors, which your PR stunt triggered...haha only amiga makes it possible.

Guess we're all a bit itchy here with the postponed X1000 and now this new "secret" from Acube. Anyway I love it, especially hotrod and dandy "killing" each other while waiting

I vote for Hotrod - now if you guys really meet in a gentleman fight, would you please make sure to record it all on video thanks.

Possible result of that fight
Anyway, I don't want/need a laptop or whatever, so I hope it's some FPGA-fun or a fresh Minimig.
