If you are familiar with the history of personal computers, you may have heard about the Amiga by Commodore. Although it came with a graphic-heavy OS, the Amiga PCs have gone close to kaput as the market became dominated with Windows by the early 1990s. But the makers of Amiga are still at it, as they introduced the X1000 desktop system.

The AmigaOne X1000 comes with a dual-core 2GHz PowerISa CPU, Xena 500MHz XMOS companion processor, AMD Radeon 4650 GPU, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 500GB hard disk drive, two PCIe x16 slots, four DIMM slots, 4x SATA 2, ten USB 2.0 slots.

This PC is not exactly catered for the average PC user, but for the (very few but) passionate Amiga fans who insist on defying the tides of Windows and OS X. That passion, however, comes with a price: £1699 (about US$2,715) in the United Kingdom exclusive of VAT.

There is also supposedly an Amiga-based netbook by mid-2012. Let’s hope they go lenient on the price of this one.
