That's all we've got to go on. I don't think he's trying to be purposely misleading and Q2 is a good guess based on what he said.

However, if anyone is considering buying a Checkmate 1500 Plus Stephen Jones case for a Tabor you need to know if it's worth the wait (plus we have no idea what case A-EON will choose for their bundle). So I guess, YES, it'll be coming before your Summer holidays if you're one of the lucky first 100 'Early Adopters'!

@Thread

Plus that's only 345 if you are an early adopter until the price goes up for the second batch or Brexit brings more currency fluctuations!

Might be more useful to save that money for a PS5 and 4k TV but the Amiga pull is a strong one!

We were promised that the Tabor was coming out in the same time as the Checkmate case, which I believe did come out in May. We were also promised that the price will be 400 Euro. Now, the Tabor is coming (maybe) a year later, only in a small handful. After which the price will go up.

What a joke.

I think I'm most excited about messing about with game creation tool 'Dreams' Final Release Edition on the PS4. Maybe a Black Friday PS4 Pro should be my use of 345?

Software is the thing. Ease of use is the thing. Creation and sharing creations are the thing! How does the A1222 hardware release help with any of those desires / important USPs even if it does show up on time? Software bundle? Enhancer included?

A-EON marketing needs to wind up in the new year and the second batch of A1222s needs to follow soon after with not too much extra mark up. Limiting the 'early adopters' run to only 100 units is a big mistake IMHO!

Please have a look at the A-EON site http://www.a-eon.com/ And please click on the Aladin4D or ImageFX or Warp3D on the left menue. Nothing but mildly hot Air/Vaporware. And Trevor? I like him and he has done some good. But he is astonishing small lipped when it comes to the aquisition of the OS4 Kernel. No post on Trevors Blog or A-EON site. BTW. Please look at the press releases on A-EONs site. Last entry from 2017. The air becomes colder and colder. The categorically denial of the kernel sale proves it ones more...


Also Tabor (aka A1222 ?) can not be found on that site yet it is supposedly AEON product. The AEON site seems dead for a long time.

I would not be surprised if MorphOS x64 comes out before A1222 becomes available.

Hell by the time they release the Tabor they will need to be recapped.

It's hard to tell what progress is being made on MorphOS x86_64. They had it displaying a desktop at Amiga 34, but it wasn't actually doing anything beyond that, as far as I know. Has anyone seen it running applications?

Hopefully they don't have a Varta battery on board.

I think I'll put a Mega SG on my Christmas list instead of the 'nowhere to be seen' Tabor A1222!

The Mega SG looks like an impressive piece of kit. Road Rash 2 on a HDMI TV over Christmas would be class!

@Thread

No extra Tabor A1222 news and I'd still give them until the end of Q2 2020 before risking more "When it's done! " responses

However, I have just realised that there is a new HDMI adapter cable / upscaler available for the MegaDrive released in the last few months that will although me to dust off my wife's old console and introduce the kids to Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament this Christmas (the best version IMHO with the 4-player special cartridge ). While the Mega SG would be awesome I guess I should keep some money in the Tabor fund!

The cable / adapter is called the 'Pound Technology HD Link cable' and can be bought for 30 in the UK.

... plus I've never played Earthworm Jim 2 so that might be worth a purchase!

From the blog I'd expect the X5000 Plus machine to be available before the A1222.

But obviously "Only the Shadow knows!"

Just wondering - wouldn't it have made more sense if they released cheap machines first and then went to X1000 and X5000 instead of the other way round? People just keep waiting.

@Everblue

I guess Varisys suggested the PA6T CPU as it was known to them and they were an authorised customer due to their other contracts and everything else has run from there. The A1222 CPU while an understandable choice 5 or 6 years ago is less so now (though cheap). It seems like a, "what's possible to create a dream modern Amiga system" approach (I think Trevor would admitt that was a personal goal of his), and now and only now is it considered that a more "computers for the masses not the classes" approach is back on the cards.

A financially bizarre approach? Maybe.
A sign of the love and enthusiasm that Trevor and A-EON have to pull the AmigaOne ecosystem forward by its bootstraps? Most definitely.
An entertaining saga? Certainly worthy of Hollywood IMHO and maybe selling that story is how we'll get the classic application PPC rewrites funded?

Obviously, the PPC LimeBook was touted as a low cost solution back in the day. But I'm just glad that these A-EON machines actually exist beyond prototype stage (althought the Tabor has been pushed back into prototyping due to the obsolescence of certain components

As I understand it, the X5000 Plus is just a reconfiguration of the already existing X5000, whereas the Tabor design has just been updated and the board needs to be produced and tested first. So it's not so surprising that the X5000+ will come before the baby brother.

sigh If Trevor is determined to refer to The Shadow as,
Quote:
a cult US fictional detective series created by Walter B. Gibson which first appeared on radio in the 1930's and later in magazines, books, TV series and movies.

...perhaps he shouldn't illustrate it with an image from the comic book series which he omits to mention.

(Why, yes; yes, I do have my priorities in order. Why do you ask? )
