A-EON Technology is pleased to announce it has formed a new strategic alliance with AmigaKit, the official distributor of the AmigaOne X1000.
As part of this alliance, AmigaKit will jointly fund new AmigaOne hardware developments and will market all future products. Matthew Leaman of AmigaKit said, “This move is in line with our desire to bring exciting new products to the Amiga market, such as our ZorRAM memory card and funding the AmigaOS4.1 Classic update. We welcome this new opportunity to support our Amiga customers.”
Trevor Dickinson added, “A-EON Technology has a very close working relationship with AmigaKit. We appointed them as our lead distributor and they have played a crucial role in helping to deliver the AmigaOne X1000 to market. He also added, I am also delighted that what originally began as my support for AmigaOS software developers in 2005, through my Hardware Donation programme, has resulted in the release of the AmigaOne X1000 in 2011. With AmigaKit taking care of customer contact and support I can now refocus my efforts on funding new hardware and software initiatives for the benefit of the whole Amiga community.” Please refer to the AmigaKit and A-EON Technology website for future updates.

About the AmigaOne X1000
The AmigaOne X1000 is not like other computers. It is a culmination of efforts by real Amiga enthusiasts and developers to create powerful, modern desktop hardware for the Amiga Operating System. It is the natural evolution of the Amiga’s PowerPC lineage and is based on the PA-Semi Dual-core PA6T-1682M CPU and includes Xena, a “Software Defined Silicon” co-processor. Above all, it runs the latest version of the AmigaOS.
