hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Sam460cr sold out "in seconds", second batch on its way
   posted by Petah on 25-Mar-2021 1:22:09 (2179 reads)
On Wednesday, March 24th Italian Amiga manufacturer announced that the first reproduction run of the Sam460cr - a PowerPC-based Amiga motherboard - was sold out "in minutes". The company underlined that Amiga users longing for new hardware won't be left out in the cold, since a second batch is already planned for. Future customers are asked to express their interest in an e-mail, signing up a pre-order.



At the time of this writing, it is unknown what the upfront cost will be, and what the final price will be. The first batched retailed for 489 including the latest release of AmigaOS along with a games bundle. The cost reduced motherboard lacks a few crucial components, including graphics and SATA controller hardware, adding to the grand total.

With ACube producing brand new Amiga hardware, further pressure is put on its competitor A-EON and its own line of PowerPC based Amiga systems. With the company's highly anticipated low cost A1222 Plus Amiga slated for launch in Q2, 2021, the market for entry level PowerPC Amigas is sizzling. Expect to see how the two systems stack up up against each other this summer, when they should have reached the first consumers.

Almost East Europeans are happy to stay there in EU just because they get bilions of euros for free every year (thanks to Germany, Italy & France). But, sooner or later, this "dream" will be over and then they'll have to search for a new "udder" - probably an American one, but Americans are a bit more smarter than Europeans, you know... it's only a question of money and nothing else... ;)

Sorry for the OT :)

Anyone knows what this new batch included, and how much it cost, VAT included?

Sadly not .. 22% is our VAT in Italy since 2018, before it was 20 (thanks again EU!)

Not that bad. Take Hungary, for example: they have a 27% VAT rate and a dictator in charge on top. So there's a bright side for you to look at

Well... Made in Italy means more something like nice design, trendy, stylish, etc. I would not stretch this to quality and craftsmanship. Unfortunately made in Italy is not always a guarantee for quality..
