The Amiga A1000 computer is a legend. I was 15 years old when it hit the market in 1985. I am not sure though how many people are still out their waiting for a new obscure computer from Amiga.

The company is still alive and they just published specifications for a new Amiga computer.
This new Amiga system will be offered at a suggested retail price of $489.00. (without Monitor).The new Amiga is based on the Freescale MPC8349E SoC PowerPC CPU.
