After it was clear that neither Amiga Inc., nor Eyetech and Hyperion Entertainment will present the new AmigaOne at the AMIGA + RETRO COMPUTING 2002, we started thinking about how to get an AmigaOne to the show anyway.|

The solution is an offer from Computer City.
Owner Ron van Herk provides his own AmigaOne, and the members of the
Amiga-Club im BTX & Internet
will do the presentation.
The computer on display is an AmigaOneSE-G3 with 750CXe 600 MHz CPU,
equipped with 128 MB SDRAM PC133 and an ATI Radeion 7000 64 MB SDR
VGA graphics card with TV-Out, and of course the Cherry
Cybo@rd-keyboard that's being sold by Computer City. The operating
system installed is only a Suse LinuxPPC 7.3, but it'll give an
impression of the hardware.

|In reply to Comment 17 (Mickael):|
I think you are misunderstanding the word "launch".
When a ship is launched, that doesn't mean it is ready for a passenger
cruise immediately. There is a long period of fitting out first.
Launching a product means starting to talk about it publically, giving
a presentation of what it will do, getting editorial coverage, etc. It
doesn't mean you can buy a finished retail version on that day.
I expect they are hoping to have a demonstratable beta by the time of
CeBit. They might also decide for marketing reasons to sell it while
still in beta, as has been done with MorphOS.
