Excellent.

Made the transition from Vapourware to hardware nicely.

Anyone else noticed, no floppy connector and it has decent IDE connectors with the surround so you can't put the cable in the wrong way round.

Also I wonder if it is possible to get a PCI riser card so that you can put more then one PCI card in at right angles to the board?

This is the best news in ages.

If the radeon chip isn´t from the stone age, and the price is "right". This is what I (we?) have been waithing for.

Eyetech! Hard facts! Now!

Please :)

Okay, I can identify most things on this board, but on the back connector panel there is a black din plug beside the VGA connector... That looks like S-Video to me. Does anyone know if that is S-Video? If so, it would make this the ideal set-top / gaming / internet gizmo thingy.

Oh yeah, and this is the case I would like to house that baby into. Click on the pic for more pictures in a series. I can see that with black keyboard, mouse and black flat panel display.

Hmm...

AmigaOne Lite
DVD-Rom
30-40Gb harddrive
64-128Mb ram
Small case.
Small keyboard + mouse or a specific amiga input adopted remote control device.
OS4.x
DVD player software
DivX player software
mp3/ogg player software

Connected to my TV in the living room and my LAN.

Perfect home entertainment system :)

Depending on the price that is.

This is excellent news IMHO.

If they succeed in keeping the price low this could really be the A1200 of the new millennium, especially if the DIN plug you're talking about is really a SVideo output (and I believe it is).

PS: by the way, I wouldn't worry too much about RAM, yes those DIMMs are pretty expensive, but remember this is an AmigaOS4 powered machine, not our "beloved" RAM-Eater-OS (tm)

Sell it in a nice case with prominent Amiga branding, a DVD-ROM drive and (a cut-down/adapted) OS4 on ROM, bundle it with a game controller and a small amount of NV-RAM and you have... an AmigaOne-CD32

Here's the case I'll be putting it in, nothing else will do.
A600

Then I'll take it to lan parties and have fun :)

If all you care so much about cost, what I can understand, Why don't you adopt an Apple eMac as platform. It is much cheaper than this prototype, features a Radeon 7500 (not that old crap in the proto that it isn't a single Radeon) a wonderful integrated screen (for the bedroom coder) and lots of compatible apple peripherials.

I know this is not an Amiga purist's idea but it is more financially viable than that.

Which support would you have with that custom board? Apple is not likely to dissapear or stop support.

Even though I owned an Amiga 500 during 6 moths I can't claim to be called Amiga fan, but I can see and understand your excitement about developing for such a platform. But asimilating that Apple hardware could be quite interesting, If you always stick to the cheapest Apple HW you will go on getting what you want.

I guess I am wrong about many of these ideas, but that also could attract some apple users or some users that may be interested in buying a new Amiga HW but also would be able to use it as an Apple Mac.

Comments on the design:

1) Why a PC gameport? Dump that old legacy POS. Use a 3-high stacked audio column instead (which you can see on modern PC motherboards). That will give you room on the back panel for another dual USB column but with a Firewire connector at the top instead of ethernet. Optical SPDIF output would be nice as well.

2) Please have headers on the board for serial, Infra-Red, etc.

3) This might not be popular, but replace the Parallel output with DVI output, so that the small system can be used with a decent TFT display. Stick the parallel on the board as a set of headers.

4) PS/2 is useful to retain still.

I can see the 3com networking chip, but no other chip. What is the point of the southbridge if you are going to use a different USB2 controller, a different IDE controller (how about a SATA controller, these are small and the connectors are small), etc? Just for audio and PS/2? Dump the chip and use something else. ALi might have a suitable southbridge that won't have VIA problems.

If possible, try and design in a full-sized DIMM slot, or fit two SO-DIMM slots on the board.

With the above, the board would be pretty damn hot, at under £200 with an 800MHz G3...

Very nice looking

I would prefer a notebook/laptop, but it would be nice with this case

I am looking forward to see the final product

Also interesting

What's nice about this is that there was no long drawn out process of hearing rumoured release dates long before anything was even made. Someone mentioned the possibility of a mini-ITX machine and then, a few months later, here's the prototype and we're already halfway there.

It really would be great to have a complete range of machines available for the release of OS4
