On this page, Merlancia Systems Engineering Labs (who seem to be affiliated with the Amiga dealer of the same name) announce the Torro series of multimedia computers, all running the new Amiga DE. They include desktops, handhelds, set-top-boxes and whatnot and run on Motorola processors (PPC and Coldfire) and Merlancia's own CPU (?). Make of it what you wish...

Merlancia announce a series of computers : Comment 17 of 33ANN.lu

This is so funny, tragically funny. If a website is too slick, it is, defacto, a hoax, if it is not slick enough, then, it is a hoax. What is the ratio of graphics/text that determines whether a site is real? Are computer graphics sufficient, or do you need some photos to make it "real?"
Also, it seems that if no one knows anything about a site, then the site *must* be a hoax. That means that anyone putting up a site for the first time is obviously creating a hoax.
To call it a hoax without any info one way or another, is incredibly pompous and arrogant, kinda "Bill Gatesian". Whatever happened to "insufficient data to draw a conclusion?"
At the moment it is nothing but a site making an announcement, nothing more. Whether they are serious, or spoofing, we do not know. Even if nothing comes of it, it does not mean a hoax was involved. All we can do is sit back and watch, time is a great revealer of truth.
