Wonder if Eyetech will ever be able to match a price like that?

If we are supposed to get new users on board at some point, a new cheap entrance model are desperately needed.

The AmigaOne LITE with everything onboard looks like it could be the perfect "beginners" machine, but I doubt that Eyetech can compete on the price?

They will need a good distribution channel, and to ramp up volume by selling the board to other projects than Amiga desktop.

Let's all hope it will be possible to do a low price Amiga once again.
