That's a lot of money for a system based on a cpu from 2012. Think I will stick with my 040 and considerably faster and better supported PC.

I read that as "I will stick with my considerably better supported 040", which is kinda true if you look at the numbers of files uploaded on Aminet and OS4Depot in the last 10 days...

I swear this thread was started just to get a reaction.
This is mainly a classic forum, so I can only assume the original post is pointless.

Watch out for the more popular hardware Amiga €1200.

Can we scrap this thread now, as it was posted for no reason other than to stir.
Funny how the same user hasn't posted the same thing on any of the Next Amiga related sites.

I started the thread because I'm seeking information when the X5000 will be out. I had heard it would be in September. As an Amiga fan I don't currently have an OS 4.1 machine so an X5000 would be my way to get back into it.

When it comes to money, both "NG" and "classic" has a tendency to "waste" your money, if you compare it to off the shelf Wintel hardware.

For the most part, Ive always thought we dabbled with all kinds of Amigas for the fun/intrest of it, regardless of the "sanity" of it.

Lately Ive wasted 2-300 euros on parts for my A1200, not to mention the long hours messing about getting to know WorkBench again.
Most people I know in reallife would think I was completely bonkers if they knew.

Just seems strange you ask here. Ask over on amiga.org or amigaworld.net

Ill tell you what, I can practically guarantee you that after 5-6 years...any A4000 (or other high end Amiga) is worth more (ie has better resell value) than any high end Wintel PC you can buy. So "wasting money" is a relative term.. Unless you earn something back by using it, you're "wasting money" right?

I think most of us will have to wait for the Amiga 500. It's not like we would be losing AGA compatibility because none of them have it .

I am sure your right, I have a 5 year old HP worksation that was about $7000 new, if I had not upgraded the hard drives and video cards recently it would only be worth about $600 or so now.

I don't see too many people saying they want an old PC either, I don't get nostalgic and miss my first 386 PC.
