They state on the X1000 site that "Commodore did with the A1000, we're aiming at the high-end first, with a powerful desktop computer aimed at the professional and serious hobbyist markets (although you won't have to wait until summer, and it should be a little cheaper!)"
I think they mean that the A1000 was released in Summer 1985 (July 24th) and cost 1295 USD.
The X1000 will be less expensive and out before the Summer..... :-) !!!
Is that less than the 1985 1295USD or the equivalent today of 1950USD ???
