Re: Need something new
Authored by: Anonymous on Sep 15, '08 06:09:43PM

I'd like to see something like the rumoured Amiga "Walker" concept from about 1995. A base machine, with a set of upgrade ports on the bottom. Sit it on top of a series of upgrade boxes: graphics, storage, second optical drive, iPod dock. Third parties could get in on the act to produce devices that conform to the same form-factor: film scanners, graphics cards, 5.1 surround, etc. Upgrades without opening cases, and without cables.

The base machine would be fairly low spec and cheap to produce. The profit is made on options.
