Well, the hardware prices are just too high...........the addition of OS4.1 can only increase the price.

Everybody already knows that a small production volume computer will cost more that the mass-produced Windows PC. If you can afford it you will have one, if not you will remain on the sidelines. Fact of Life.

What bothers me more are the specs. There has been a lot of discussion about the graphics memory requirements for OS 4.1. The Sam has only 64MB. It's not going to be any better than a A1 in that regard. I'd like to be able to run multiple max resolution 32bit screens but 64MB might not be enough mem.

I think I'm giong to buy Satan some ice-skates for Christmas this year. He's going to need them.

And best of all only one er... person in this thread complaining that x86 systems (which are made in their millions) are less expensive than AOS4 systems (which are made in hundreds/few thousands). That's progress! The education must be finally working. :)

Congratulations and many thanks to Hyperion and Acube for decimating the value of my A1XE and my OS4 A4000... and I don't mean that sarcastically (not going to sell them anyway!)

For what it's worth, the SAM runs rings around my micro here with 4.1. The M9 is significantly newer than the 7000 series, and the extra memory makes it an enjoyable experience.

Isn't it possible to use fastmem as videomem? (or is it too slow?)
I never heard of any problems with low gfxmem on os 3.x or MorphOS.

Or is it P96 which sucks?

Brilliant news! Well done to Hyperion, A-Cube, the developers and beta-testers. I never doubted you for a moment! This should re-ignite the Amiga community.

The day OS4 have a nice browser, an office suit (Openoffice, maybe) and can work with my RAW files from my Oly E-510, they have a customer.
Great news by the way, never thought it would happen so soon.
