Sven Harvey takes a look at new CommodoreUSA Amiga Mini

Commodores Amiga?

Sven Harvey Micromart UK  takes a look at new CommodoreUSA Amiga Mini

The new Commodore in the USA is now the only Commodore after its taken control over the brand.

It`s also licenced Amiga brand from Amiga Inc., and it has been working on uniting the brands for quite a while.

The product that was to be the first „Commodore Amiga“ since 1994 has gone true lot of changes since the agreement was reached between the two companies, while Hyperion Entertaiment quite rightly challenged the agreement following the settlement that awarded it an exclusive perpetual worldwide right to the brand, at least in some form.

Commodore had planned on doing new Amiga 1000, 2000, 3000 and so on, but the first product to break cover and become available to order is in a 7,5 x 7,5″ mini-ITX case.

The Commodore Amiga Mini will be available in silver or black and is distinctive in that it features a molded-in Commodore „chickenhead“ logo on the top of the casing, while and embossed Amiga logo (in the original form) adorns the front of the casing along with the silver Commodore Amiga case badge very much in the traditional style.

There are few confusion on the Commodore website regarding the specifications. In one place it seems to suggests 16GB RAM comes as standard whereas elsewhere it sais 4GB. Filtering the pages it seems the standard specification was originally going to be what is now the highest end, but reaction to the pricing has resulting in lower specs being available.

The motherboard is of mini-ITX form factor and comes with 1GB (DDR3) nVIDIA GT430 GPU board as standard. From there you can choose processor, either a dual core i3-2130 at 3,4Ghz, quad core i5-2500K, or the quad core i7-2600K.  Memory can be configured as 4,8 or 16GB, while blue ray slot loading optical drive (with DVD R/RW) comes as standard. A 1TB hard disk is the default option, while 2 SSD options are available.

The machines comes with CommodoreOS Vision – a customized Linux distribution based on MINT and Debian with bunch of pre-installed software.

Sounds all very PC doesn`t it? There is a reason for that. This is no more an Amiga then HP laptop from TESCO. The name is on it, but no Amiga-related technology resides within the hardware nor the software. Amiga Forever isn`t even bundled, thou it is suggestion on Commodores site that machine can run 16-bit and 32-bit Amiga software. The question is how because without Amiga Forever package, it cannot legally include the Amiga kickstart ROM code …

With pricing ranging from USD 1 500 up to nearly 3 000$ including 600GB SSD option, its a good job. The casing is available as barebones (thou this included the blue-rays sloat loading drive) at 345 USD.

The question is, without AmigaOS, should it have the name at all?

AmigaOne X1000

Following the complete sell out of the AmigaOne X1000 first contact systems, A-EON has commissioned further run of initial systems, so if you are happy to spend the money and get sonething really different running the AmigaOS 4.1 (and soon 4.2) you might want to keep an eye on www.amigakit.leamancomputing.com/x1000/

Sven Harvey has been our Amiga specialist for over 12 years, drawing on his vast computing knowledge which is itself the result of 21 years of retailing computer and video games.

CommodoreOS Beta 9 is Mint … C=OS Fusion is MINT 13 that you can download and install free at 1GHz PC 1GB

8:10 to learn how to steal from MINT, 8:50 to see why people say its not AMIGA … and why there is no video 3?

Download real MINT now at no cost! Works on all Laps, PeeCees and is really supported

x86 32 bit and x64 unlike C=OS elitist x64





ARM soon come!

One love from Serbia!

And how do they respect MINT dem a steal, pirates and lowlifes!


They contacted us and we talked about a partnership initially. Then we didn’t hear from them anymore so we assumed they weren’t interested in doing anything with us.

We’re still happy to see our OS used by others and I don’t think there’s any problems in regards to licensing. It’s just a missed opportunity for them and for us to establish what would have been a very good partnership.


Clement Lefebvre


There has been much criticism of the company CUSA because of its hype and claims of creating a „new operating system for our computers“ and then simply skinning an existing linux distribution. Critics of CUSA and several linux experts have stated that COS development time has been less than 2 weeks time to write some scripts and replace standard mint graphics files with their own

Some of little White lies …

1. We will do All in One Amiga computer

So many A1200 and A500 photoshopped pics and they never did it, Loriano was better and with more style.

2. We will support and develop AROS

They blame it on Hyperion that has threatened with legal action, but hey, its easy to build AROS compatibile sys

They promised AROS development (see Leos post at Aros.exec and them shamefully bashed AROS just because they needed to pay for drivers to get it working on C64x.

3. We will build a new OS

They have just bloated Mint 10 distro, and yet its slow, with awful speech synth and doesnt support well hardware. Better use real MInt 13

4. We are open source power

No, you just steal someone elses work, and you dont invest in Linux at all

5. We are Commodore

No you are just abusers of its fame, you are 4 man and a dog. One is IT literate, non is polite and human.

6, We are Amiga

As much as Amiga Inc that every your buyer sponsor and keep alive.

7. We are as good as  Apple

Apple should sue you for Amiga Mini and VIC Mini, as well as for supporting Hackintosh. Tommorow I will writte to Apple

They do unique designs of computers and periphals with taste, and do have OS of their own.

( yes I did wrote to Apple)

8. We will beat Dell

No you will not with such prices

9. We produce a lot of computers

Judged by size of community, where many people are just COS users on their own hardware, you are just OEM rebrander that works on demand, low demand. And your pyramid multilevel scheme needs real dumb people to go.

10. We have 30 million budget, we will buy all Amigas, PowerPC is dead

No, budget was just fakerism your sad PR invented, you will never buy real AmigaOS, PowerPC is more alive then all of you. You even ripp of Amiga Forever.

Great CommodoreOS support for their free Mint Beta

  • Commodore OS Vision is available for free download by the general public.
  • Commodore OS Vision is beta software under continual development and improvement.
  • There are no warranties whatsoever regarding its usage or applicability for any purpose.
  • The focus is entirely on the system working well on Commodore hardware and usage on other systems may vary.
  • Commodore OS Vision is 64-bit software only, to make the most of the latest technology.
  • Commodore classic ROMs are provided with our machines or purchased media only (coming soon).

And only purchasers of CUSA machine can even be beta testers officially, even everyone in fact is beta tester.

They plan to sell it and have just imagined CommodoreOS FUSION  …. no body knows what it is, another Tesla weapon

Btw, Mint 11 and Debian Wheezy can be installed on amigaOne boards and they are final and more advanced

Introducing Sinclair OS


Sinclair OS Beta booting.
Sinclair OS is a community driven Linux distribution for Sinclair enthusiasts that is designed to unleash your creative potential as well as enjoy your computing experience to the fullest. Sinclair computers were well known for their text based operating environments, so we seek to do the same, by providing a distinctive, ugly, primitive and frustrating operating system experience. Intended for pre-installation on all future Sinclair hardware, Sinclair OS comes pre-loaded with dozens of the latest and greatest productivity, creativity  and education software the open source world has to offer. Featuring dozens of exciting  games, the latest web browsing technology, a Microsoft Word compatible Office Suite, advanced graphical manipulation programs, 3D raytracing software, advanced software development tools and languages, photo and movie editing and sound and music composition programs, there is no task too big or too small for our new Sinclair computer to accomplish.Feeling nostalgic? Sinclair OS will provide functionality that will allow it to be classic Sinclair compatible, with integrated features to launch classic 8-bit era software via emulation easily. Games and demos for the Sinclair Spectrum, ZX80, ZX81 and QL  can be launched effortlessly. No need to bother with cassette tapes or microdrives, as many games can be legally puchased and downloaded from the internet directly on to your computer.All the computers we sell come with a version of Ubuntu and Canonical can be contacted for software support since we don’t know how it works. Our machines are also capable of running Microsoft Windows (sold separately). Windows can be launched either from a multi boot menu at startup (installed by Sinclair OS), or seamlessly integrated within Sinclair OS itself. This flexibility allows you to easily access the strengths of each operating system installed on your new Sinclair machine.To create the authentic sinclair experience, Sinclair OS is based on Ubuntu with the graphical user interface removed and only the text console for input, we have also changed the colour scheme to black on white just like the old machines.Nearly all features mentioned above are what we eventually plan to have available in SinclairOS and may not be available in the currently released versions mainly due to us not knowing what we are doing and possibly not having the rights to use roms for the emulators but it’s still SinclairOS so shut up.See below for a video showing a beta version of our new Sinclair Brasso web browser that makes every web site look like it would on an original spectrum (it’s not real, we found it on youtube and liked the idea so decided to use it to make us look like we’re capable of doing useful things).
