AmigaOne is a series of computers intended to run AmigaOS 4 developed by Hyperion Entertainment, as a successor of the popular Amiga series by Commodore International. Earlier models were produced by Eyetech, and were based on the Teron series of PowerPC POP mainboards. In September 2009, Hyperion Entertainment secured exclusive licence for AmigaOne name and subsequently new AmigaOne computers were released by A-Eon Technology and Acube Systems. In September 2009, as resolution of dispute over ownership of AmigaOS Hyperion was granted (among other provisions of Settlement Agreement with Amiga, Inc.) exclusive licence for the AmigaOne name. This Settlement Agreement thus created legal basis for new generation of AmigaOne computers. In February 2010, a new company A-Eon Technology, in co-operation with Hyperion Entertainment, officially announced a new AmigaOne model, the AmigaOne X1000, first presented at the Vintage Computer festival at Bletchley Park in June 2010. A-Eon Technology announced at Amiwest that A-Eon Technology signed a 1.2 million-dollar(!) investment contract with Ultra Varisys for the ongoing design, development and manufacture of PowerPC hardware for its AmigaOne line of desktop computers.


The AmigaOne 500 by Acube systems Italy was the complete, ready to run solution for all Amiga users. Built around the well known Sam460ex, the AmigaOne 500 will let you run AmigaOS 4.1 straight out of the box. No need to look for and install peripherals, no need to hassle with software installation procedure. Just plug your monitor, keyboard and mouse and press the power button to enter into the world of AmigaOS. If you ever used the old Amiga 500 you will find that the new AmigaOne 500 takes this legacy to a new level: extra speed, modern interfaces (DDR2 memory, USB2, PCI Express, SATA2, Gigabit ethernet), onboard sound, faster graphics, and able to run the most up to date Amiga Operating System for Hyperion Entertainment CVBA.
