@Turrican3
I am under the impression that AAA (Advanced Amiga Architecture) was nothing much more than a PCI compatible chunky approach with planar legacy. (not much acceleration) and virtualy nothing compaired to todays gfx cards.

what i want is an intergrated amiga not a directly emulated one, I dont mind emulating certain resources but to lump everything to the hardware, then its not much different to what i have now in my laptop..

technically if we dont think about the time involved to R&D and Eval. it woudln`t cst that much compaired to a mid to high range laptop ... say $900 ish....

@Doc
in the spirt of MMORPG kindship ..... ("eat my shorts!!!"), in honesty i believe if you find a game you love stick to it!
I gamed UO (for the longest time ever.. loved that)
I gamed Dungeons and Dragons (beta tested - wasn`t impressed)
I gamed Middle Earth (Beta tested - found it lacking in anything new)
I gamed Everquest II (Player grinding is forever!!!.... slow but nice.. but slow..)
I gamed Eve.. and as much as I love the space sim... (booorrrriingg...) reminds me a lot of a turn based stratagy web game that i cannot remember!
I Gamed Streetwarz
With my possy (The Brat Pack!)... we were in the top 5 3 months in a row!! ahh back when it wasn`t a turn buyers game....

I gamed WoW (ashamed i admit it! LOL ) seriously it does have a intricate level of race and abilites but.... even with the MC-Hammer dancing Orc couldn`t keep me... this game is missing something.... hmmm

I Game GW: its an arcady form of RPG ) quick dirty and i love it!

Why not sony buy the amiga, put the ps3 motherboard in a tower case, ask hyperion to make a port of os4.0 and launch it.
with the amiga name, the launch in usa will be better.

A Lappytop of course would be nice.

But I think if OS4 is to make anyone any cash, it needs to run on x86 architecture.

Realistically, a whole new system for such a small market isn't a great idea. But I would LOVE to see a PCI expansion that allows backwards compatibility with all the custom chips, etc. Might be a bit messy and inefficient, but with the power of todays home computers it shouldn't be a problem.

Honestly, I think the idea of Amiga computers is dead in the water, but AmigaOS is what made them great, and if we could bring them onto today's technology, a la Linux, BSD, etc, it could become a viable inexpensive alternative for Home users and businesses alike.

And I'd be able to play Superfrog at work

Having siad all that, I am definitely in the market for one of these new entry level system, if only to say I have one
