Well, free machine translation is one thing... A proper translation is another, and costs money.

Looks nice and slick, but, the big question is, does it run all the cool 1980s and 90s games from the amiga 500 era ???

Yes, via emulation...

I see he reported DGen working wonderfully. Nice to see that it works not only for me, and it is not slow. Sometimes I find myself playing more Sega games on my Amiga, than Amiga games on my... Amiga.

Cannot see why anyone would want one.

It brings nothing to the table that a fast x86 PC + OS of your choice cannot offer. Plus it is going to be dog slow compared to a Core2Duo or i7

You can't run AmigaOS 4.x on Core2Due!

But you can WinUAE, other emulators and even MacOS X on x86 better than most other platforms!

I wish AmigaOS 4.x would be available on the x86 natively.

True, but the CDTV wasn't actually an Amiga was it?

It was a CD player, or a media center, a console...a PC....or or...oh, who knows what the hell it was
