Normally I would have to increase the price, but with announcements already made and pre-payments taken, I cannot do that.
We'll be closing the office for two days after january 1st for inventory counting and all the paperwork for taxes and stuff. After those few days, I will have the required numbers to make a decision on the remaining stock of ACA630, and about the future of any production run. From a gut feeling, I fear that we're losing money on the ACA630 (both versions).
That is very unfortunate if you have turned out to be making a loss. I have been one of the lucky few to jump on the order bandwagon for the 30mhz version in time, however if there is a need, I would actually be ok with a slight increase in the price to help secure future development on the Amiga. Im sure I wouldn't be the only one.
I am sure you won't increase the price, but just know that I appreciate the work and work done well is always worth paying for.
