Events   Events : New York AmigaOne & Micro A1 demo report
   posted by Russ on 28-Dec-2003 0:37:07 (6243 reads)
At the 3rd annual LICA Christmas pizza party on Dec 19th, board members Kurt Grach and Russ 'Mr. Hardware Computers' Norrby presented not only the fully functional AmigaOne but the first showing of the MicroA1 (aka AmigaOne Lite) motherboard which Santa had delivered to Russ just the day before the meeting.

The numerous attendees included not only our tireless regulars, but 'retired' members of the club and even several 'first-timers' (including visitors from MA.!), all of whom were coaxed out into the cold to see the first new Amiga in over a decade. Just over 6 inches long, the Micro A1 Beta motherboard was a very clean in design. Next month Russ plans to show it running OS4 in a new custom case that they are designing.

With a 19" LCD monitor sitting between his fully-loaded, custom Towered A1200 and the AmigaOne to which it was networked, Kurt loaded the ROM image from the A1200 to the A1 and - like the magic of the Rockefeller Center tree lighting - OS4.0 came up on the screen, running on the A1. Numerous features of the new OS were highlighted, and then even more magically, several 'legacy' software titles (previously installed on the A1 HD) including AmigaWriter, FinalWriter97, FX Scan, Art Dept Pro, Ibrowse and Simple Mail were flawlessly loaded and run. It was a great showing, both by Russ & Kurt for getting the presentation together, and by the current and 'old' loyalists who turned out to see it. Thanks to all!

Now stop reading 3rd party writeups as if they were the gospel.


Seriously, I am 100% behind this.
Every day I see someone who has COMPLETELY misunderstood something trying to explain it to someone else. To be fair, noone can know everything. But still, if it didn't come from the official channel it should NOT be treated as truth, simply because the person behind it might not have gotten all the details.

For more about this, see "technical journalism"

This weeks pet peeve:
Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

The MicroA1 has a ITX form factor and will therefore fit into any suitable ITX case with a 300W or higher PSU

say what?... even my loaded P4system, don't draw more than a 100Watt from the wall plug. why would a PPC system need this much power!..

And, most Micro-ITX cases only have a sub 200watt supply is this a simply typo?

You must have read a "typo"!

I read-

-vortexau, who's A1 XE-G4 remains at half-RAM !
A2000HD (from 1991) 060 64Mb PicassoII with OS3.5 . . . still working.
