This probably isn't interesting to many users here, but just thought I would pass on some information I thought was interesting. I heard from a good friend who keeps up with all the latest news about any of the Amiga related platforms, and he told me that sales of the Vampire500 v2 have already surpassed 4,000 units.
I was unaware that they had fixed their manufacturing problems, and were able to produce the Vampire500 v2 so quickly. My friend has the older and less powerful version for the A600 Amiga computer, but he raves about the power it has, and how it has transformed his Amiga experience.
I am waiting until next month to order my own Vampire500 v2 board, and have not yet decided which old Amiga of mine to install it into. If it fits into my CDTV and still allows the case to be closed and look stock, as well as allows the CD drive to be used and run all of the original CDTV software, I will probably put it in that system. If not, I will probably install it into one of my A1000 systems, which is my favorite computer case design of all time.
I was wondering how many MorphOS users are planning on, or who have already purchased a Vampire600, or Vampire500 accelerator board, or if any members here are waiting to purchase the stand alone Vampire board, or the Vampire1200, if/when they are available for sale? Many people think that the stand alone Vampire board will be the next design to be produced.
