Shame the current price for the cheapest SAM440 (w/ 512MB RAM and Gfx Card) is 263 (€332) WITHOUT OS4.1. Hopefully there will be some 'deals'!

...I promised myself I wouldn't comment on an OS4 thread again until there was actually hardware available on which it could be run.
Now there is!


What next, an x86 port..?

Sorry, couldn't resist - I do see this as good news, my regards to all involved.

Just so I'm clear, even if I spend 332 on a motherboard and video card plus whatever other bits are needed (case, power supply, keyboard etc.) and 105 on AmigaOS 4.1 I still won't be able to run Speedball 2 without using an emulator which would run better on a PC that costs half as much? If that's true, what is the big deal about Amiga OS 4.1?

Its just the future of the amiga concept..
If your happy just playing Speedball2 then you can still using an emulator in PC but if you want keeping had some fun in Amiga playing Speedball2 while enjoying the evolution in Amiga concept then is worth the expense

It is an evolution of "something", but this has nothing to do with the good old Amiga.

Well look i am a big fan of the Classic Amiga but this is absolutely astoundingly good news! I just can't afford to buy any of it right now though, and that really really sucks!.. I want to just hand over the cash right now but i cant.

Maybe they will let me pay it off.. hehe...
