@redfox

So did I, christmas 2004 I bought my A1 with AmigaOS 4.0 Developer Prerelease.
Still got it today and it's working fine with a new Noctua CPU fan and 1GB Ram.
I wish there was a hacky kinda way to replace gfx ram chips for 128MB or 256MB chips.

But it's still a very nice machine, most stable of the SE, XE, A1 family.


EDIT: To all of you that has an A1XE with original thermalpad, aluminium heatsink and fan thats louder than Slayer! Change it now! I did that with my XE and went from a CPU temp of 75 celsius to 35 celsius. Copper heatsink with real thermal grease and a Noctua fan will give a silent and much cooler CPU ---> Rock Steady AmigaOS.

I guess only few of us guessed nearly 20 years ago that those NG systems of that days would still be in use today. I mean when I got my Pegasos in 2003 I retired my then 18 years old Frankenamiga 1200PPC/BVIsion/InfinityZII - I felt that such on old machine was just not reliable... My Pegasos is now 19 years old - and still running (albeit a G5 has taken over the everyday job).

The years somehow rushed through in a breeze...

Glad to hear you stil enjoy. Keep us updated!

Update...

My system has been acting up a bit lately. Sometimes I hear a click and hard drive appears to go to sleep. System freezes if I try to open anything. Recovers ok after reset.

Yesterday, I powered up my MicroA1 and it would not boot at all, not from hard drive and not from CD. Could not even get U-Boot screen.

Replaced dead battery and reset UBOOT settings to factory settings.

SFS was reporting errors on the system partition, so I reinstalled OS4.

Later, I discovered that the rear USB ports had been re-enabled again somehow, maybe going back to factory settings. Anyways ... I disabled rear USB ports and system appears to be stable again.

Working ok again now, and I restored files from my backup.


My system is very old (2004) and I need to find a replacement IDE/PATA hard drive.

Glad to hear your still rocking with your micro-A1 I got my first OS4.1 system in 2008 when ACube released their Samflex@800 and upgraded it with my X1000 when it was released and been enjoying it every day since

@redfox

You may be better off with an SSD and a SATA-PATA adapter.

Speedwise it makes little difference on OS4, but it might be a bit more reliable.

Sounds like my story too :) I bought a complete Pegasos setup with MorphOS for about 300e in 2004, and my monster A1200/060/128MB/SCSI (HDs, DAT, CDRW)/Voodoo3/CV64-3D/Delfina Lite/MFC3/100Mbps/USB/TV-card/etc, which started to be quite flakey and underpowered, retired immediately. I've been a happy NG user for almost 20 years now... several years more than I did use classic Amigas as my main setup! It's pretty incredible and I'm grateful that I've been able to continue to use an Amiga-like setup (with my beloved Amiga programs) as my primary computer this long, and nothing seems to stop that in the future either.

I bought cheap mac mini in 2009. I try Morphos on it.
I found this is Amiga that I always wanted.
It was fast, with native os, 68k software run faster on it than on winuae.
I regret I don't buy Amiga NG earlier.
