Looks nice. Way better than the X1000 case. Price still quite steep, but not completely insane. While I don't have the need for OS4.x I wish them luck with their AmigaOne named Sam460 complete package.

A pity the IVA rose just this Saturday by 1%, otherwise the price incl. IVA would have been a bit lesser.

I know what you mean. I'm kinda bumbed out by this amiga one x500 it looks nothing like an Amiga 500.. I was hoping for a wedge style case. Dont get me wrong this product looks nice, and I encourage more boards, but would have really been special with an a500 case look..

In reality, although it might seem like a small thing, this change is quite a major one, as it tells us about a re-newed partnership among these companies.
I always wanted a new line-up of custom built machines to surface eventually and while I understand what's on offer now isn't exactly for everyone, it's still a beginning (ie:it had to re-start somewhere).

Cheers to a new beginning then, for how small it might be, considering the size of the market and actual economical situation it is half a miracle that we are "moving".

@realize

Well, this is just "round up finalization" of SAM offer and AmigaOne rebranding.

Its good for end customers, as well for outter world (SAM is recognoized as part of Amiga brand finaly) but is not as big as people hoped for (A500 case, emulation pack etc.)

Well if SAM 460 is AmigaOne X500, SAM 440 could be X300

No, if you'd like to follow original Commodore madness, a SAM440-powered computer should be called... X600! :D

Yup, that's basically what I said. The Sam boards will be renamed Amigaone X500 and will have a boing sticker slapped on them. People expecting a custom tablet, laptop or such will probably be bitterly dissapointed.

I doubt they would even use a teaser or announce something that small.
If that was the case i bet they would just do it and then announce it afterwards.


Wow, I really made a slam dunk on this one.

Yeah that was spot on - but nobody could have guessed they would use such an ugly case

I don't like it either.. I'd love to get one of these:

Seems perfect to me for an AmigaOne 500..

And about the font/logo:

I will wait for the x1000 looks a lot better.

Also why are they asking almost the same amount for just the MotherBoard as the complete system?

I don't blame you. If I was an OS4 fan, I'd hope for something more. It may have been very difficult for Acube to secure branding rights, no way of knowing without being on the inside. On the other side it seems very small to an end user who already accepted the Sam boards as an "Amiga".

Despite the fact I have little regard for some of their partners, I have nothing against Acube and wish them well. While I don't understand Acube's vision (nor is it my business to), I don't agree with some people calling this a "rip off". By far too expensive for me, but no one is holding a gun to my head to buy one.

how about a poll: who is buying amigaone 500?? because i suspect the most positivie comments come from people who arent going to buy one at all. possible reasons:
1.have a sam already
2.still waitig for x1000
3.its too expensive for me but at least there is a new amigaone

Same board without RAM and with OS 4 is
- 1.15 Ghz CPU + OS4: 705,00 EUR (853.05 EUR including VAT where applicable

while AmigaOne X500 sys
Price: EUR 878 (1062.38 EUR including VAT where applicable) - including AmigaOS 4.1

So there is 150 euros difference to cover the system components
