Take a look at this page on Eyetech site. Some good news: Amiga Micro A1 preproduction boards in stock; some bad news: Eyetech reducing its presence in the Amiga Market. Link to the images of Micro A1 pre-production board

Link to the news of the Update of the site

With the announce that Eyetech is reducing its presence into the Amiga world (Classical).

Yes, its true.
After much nagging from our customers we've finally started the restructuring of the site, in line with our transition from Amiga retailer to wholesaler of PPC-based board level products, notably the AmigaOne range. As well as supplying AmigaOne products to other dealers we will be spending an increasing amount of time directly promoting PPC-based board products into industrial and commercial applications running OS4 (out of preference) or Linux, as appropriate.


This refocusing on the PPC-board market also means that our 'Classic Amiga' product range has also been rationalised and reduced, to better reflect what is now available ex-stock. We will not be purchasing any other 'Classic Amiga' stocks in from now on, so 'when its gone, its gone' as they say in B&Q.

The board will run with Debian or Yellow Dog Linux, or OS4.0 when available. These boards are not designed to be distributed to the general public and therefore do not fall within the scope of the 'Earlybird' offer.

Finally we have had a few boards made up with a suitable Morex MiniITX case. These cases have space for slimline (notebook style) CD/DVDROM and floppy/flashcard drives, for 1 x 3.5" hard drive and for a single PCI card (using the riser card supplied). They have front panel sound and USB connectors, and a built-in 12v to ATX PSU converter. They are supplied with a universal voltage IEC socket to 12v DC adapter.
