After it comes out... why not buy a Mac anyway?
The AmigaOne looks to be pretty lame.
Unless you can run quiet (without any fan or spinning disk)
then the 600 MHz G3 is a joke. Here I have a 450 MHz G4,
first shipped about 2 years ago, that doesn't have a fan.
Introducing a new machine with these specs is insane:
case: bland, bulky, awkward, noisy
video: 2x AGP
mem: 133 MHz SDRAM
cpu: 600 MHz G3 (can't use MaxBus protocol)
ports: slow USB, slow Ethernet, worthless floppy and PS/2 mouse
You people are 2 or 3 years late. I pity your investors.
I have to wonder if everyone building the design knew
that it would be a disaster... but the investors were
dumb enough to pay, so why not?
It's not as if only Apple can get the G4, that's bullshit:

bad to non-existant help (important -- can't check Google!)
command line w/o tab completion, arrow keys, history, backspace
Oooh, a SLOW motherboard+cpu for the price of a whole PC.
Yeah, that'll sell.
