Motorola and PowerPC chip driven computers like the Amiga have widely been confined to the annals of computer history along with their perceived end note: Apple’s move to Intel chips in 2006. What happens, however, when large scale manufacture of such systems is replaced by the desire of enthusiasts to keep a dream and operating system alive? The answer is AmigaOS 4 and AmigaOne X1000.
Commodore USA has unveiled its first Amiga-branded personal computer. The Amiga mini borrows Mac Mini stylings but packs a hefty punch into the compact package. An updated range also accommodates the lower spec Commodore VIC mini. Updates to the VIC-Slim keyboard-PC and C64x complete the new range.
Only a few short days ago, Commodore USA announced its intention to launch a modern version of the legendary C64
all-in-one keyboard computer. Now the company has revealed an exclusive licensing agreement with Amiga Inc. that should result in the company releasing upgraded Amiga-branded machines. As well as a technical overhaul, the new computers are to be fully compatible with the updated version of the AmigaOS operating system.
