Had to vote NatAmi, figured if I say that then by the time it ever gets released I'll be brown bread and saved myself about 600 quid which should pay for the handles on my coffin... Smilie

forgot about the "why" bit.. Embarassed

To me it's the NatAmi for a number of reasons...

The new gfx modes it going to have, it's expandability and the fact that it will have a much higher speed processor as standard which makes it (if it ever does go on sale) as the new de-facto standard for future Amiga's... Smilie

Another big plus would be that it would free people from relying on eBay and the crazy prices for hardware on their for 20 odd year old hardware, when you could buy a NatAmi and have brand new hardware... Smilie

It would also open up the potential for new software to be written that uses these new standards as their basic level and so produce faster and better progs for what will really be the closest thing to a new Amiga we are ever likely to get... Smilie

I'm the same but the NatAmi would be a great machine for reasons I mentioned in an earlier post, plus I want to put one inside an A1200 case and create a custom (sort of modern) Amiga... Smilie

I was chatting to "LordChaos" from a.org yesterday via email, he says there are 7 complete boards just now going through the final testing stages and so far everything is looking good... Smilie

And do we have any idea on vague cost? £100? £1000? Can I put it on my Christmas list this year or do I need to sell a child?

Screw the FPGAs (although Mike's board could turn into something interesting), as irritating as its going to be (to some of you) I'm sticking with PPCs.

Natami seems the closest thing to a continuation of the last Amiga I ever owned, my beloved A1200. I could just about be arsed to retrieve my A1200 (from ~500 miles North) if I didn't need to take a C= monitor, buy an accelerator (I broke mine), e.t.c. e.t.c. e.t.c. If I've got a dinky little box that sits under my PC monitor then I'm game. FPGA Arcade meets that criteria, but why when I can wait a little longer (who here isn't used to that?) and get an FPGA amiga with redesigned CPU / 3D Hardware e.t.c. Natami is the first amigaish thing I've been really excited about in a long time. So excited that I wouldn't even begrudge Cloanto 9 Euro 95 for the KSRoms ;^)
