Too fast.. :-)
Actually at the moment, I'm sitting on a stack of HP thin client PC's
frigging around with the linux internals on ideas of repurposing these
for other uses, major one is a squeezebox touch compatible thingy using
the GPL Squeezeplay source.
The 200Mhz Geode based things have only 32MB of ram, 16MB of flash - and
yup, that's fast enough for a BBC emulator - and the board is so small
it will fit inside a BBC Micro case with space to spare! Hmm, that could
be another project....
I like the way the background image shows through the sliding window.
Will it need one million POKEs to put a few pixels on the screen?
This is a pisstake IMO. The images are so obviously Photoshopped.

They're CGI, not 'shopped, I think.
Oh, ****. I was all sympathetic to the C64 product until I saw what
they've done with the Amiga name. Pretty (ugly) cased HTPCs.

As a product, it's vapourware, I believe - nobody has one, and you can't
buy one. The one on the website is a 3D model, so it's not even clear
that a single physical machine exists. In the meantime, it's a picture on
a website of something that exists inside someone's head...

Well, not totally corrected. As there have been squillions of prototype
computers that never actually got into production. In the olden days ago,
though, they seemed really exciting. As a Dragon 32 owner in the early 80s,
I found the discovery of things like the Dragon Beta really exciting just
four years ago.

;-) I think there were a few more. There's a Dragon User Yahoo group. Still
interesting to reminisce. But yes, the world moves on. I keep twitching
over my ebuyer basket, which has a Core i7 2600K processor with associated
mobo and memory sitting in it. Do I need it? No - not really. Do I want it?
You're right about the 6809 though - it had definite SEX appeal. Last of
the Motorola processors to do so, apparently!
Well I have an iMac C2D 2.66, an Acer 1810tz 11.6" 1.2ghz SU4100 notebook
and an Asus EEEPC 1001p and I just assembled a new PC with an i5-2500k @
4.6ghz (Akasa Venom CPU Cooler) 8GB Ram Asus P8P67 Motherboard ASUS 6850 1GB
Graphics 1TB Western Digital HD and an Antec Basiq 550W PSU and Coolermaster
Gladiator 600 case.
Did I really need it - no! but its the fastest PC I have ever owned and one
of the fastest PCs in the world.
