The original Amiga became great for what was made for it, with a small number of users the hours and hours behind an assembler to squeeze the last bit out of the machine might not be present, especially when you got a more powerful machine next to it.

In the interview that the article points to he mention something about 'Personally, I believe there would be a market for an "Amiga Netbook"', and I ponder why on earth they didn't go that route first. Something at a price more would buy to further expand the user base.

If I want a dualcore high end ppc machine the old mac pro g5 is quite cheap on the used marked. Probably just as powerful, not counting the additional x-chips.
1500 pounds is Waaayyyyyy too much! For that price you CAN get a kick-ass PC system.

On overclockers you can get a gaming system with Intel Core i7 930 2.8Ghz quad core with 6Gb ram and a (barebones system) Radeon HD 4850 GFX card.

All this for 905 pounds.

I'm sorry but 1500 is a ridiculous price.
