@CritAnime

The total production was probably in the low thousands considering the retail price for an empty shell.

So they are down to the last few units.


Perhaps they could sell more, perhaps not.

I would wager that's one thing the "new" owners are looking at.

I don't think guessing will be necessary.

If sales were as low as that, Commodore Holdings (as licensor) might not restart the business or have fought so vociferously in court for their rights.

If, however, they do restart...you can assume sales were of a sufficient level to sustain a business involving not only themselves but also other necessary partners. The figures exist and I'm sure are shared amongst the serious interested parties. That's merely logical when you're talking about partnerships intended to be built on a foundation of trust.

Doubt it. The facebook post states that it is very limited stock. Amibyte site states last stock and a pleading note saying buy now.

Are you sure its limited stock? With Commodore Holdings back in business I would say anything is possible.

@RobertJDohnert

The clue is in that the vendor says "limited stock".

Considering that there was only one production that took place in May 2011 and there is still remaining stock it in 2014 I doubt Commodore Holdings will be looking to resurrect the line.

We have released our first Linux distribution upgrade for Commodore USA customers and enthusiasts

http://amilx.blogspot.com/2014/02/amilx-501-released.html

This has been tested on the C64x, and the Amiga Mini from Commodore USA but it can be installed on any 64 bit compatible system.

I was more interested in the fact he miss labeled, if this was done by the owner, as Amiga One. Even the eBay description of the system has been miss labeled as Amiga One lol.

Hopefully the 10 people that bought a machine from CommodoreUSA appreciate this effort.

@CritAnime

And how is ths like CUSA all over again? We develop a product, announce a product and promote a product. Thats how running a business works, you need to have a product. Unless of course you are Hyperion and Amiga Inc. and all you do day and night is announce and never release.
