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 28 of 33ANN.lu

I'm not quite sure what to make of the Merlancia announcement. From an advertising and promotional standpoint, the announcement seems downright amateurish. On the other hand, that doesn't necessarily mean that the planned hardware is not for real. There does seem to be a lack of focus. There are too many different new brand names being suggested. What if Microsoft, instead of announcing the X-Box, had suddenly said: coming soon, the X box, Y box, Z box, Z box junior, and Z2 enhanced box? I remember getting a little bit excited about the initial Antigravity announcement about the Alien Boxer "Neila" system, while thinking that there was something a wee-bit cartoonish or unreal about it. I don't find myself getting excited about Merlancia at all. Maybe I've become too cynical, but something seems amiss with Merlancia and I will remain, for now, very skeptical about them.
