Genesi: Ordering for Pegasos II Begins on (Update)
With the installment of a new ordering form at Genesi has officially introduced the Pegasos II.

According to earlier announcements the price for the new boards are 299 Euros (G3/600MHz) up to 499 Euros (G4/1GHz).

For a limited time there's an upgrade option: an owner of the Pegasos I can trade in his or her board for a Pegasos II w. 1 GHz G4 processor for 200 Euros. The exchange will be handled in coordination with the local reseller who is offering the Pegasos II.

Also there is now the possibility to buy the SuperBundle on CD, instead of downloading it from Genesi's FTP server. The price is 19.95 Euros.

In the course of updating the website technical specifications of the new board were added, as well as a processor page that enables a comparison with X86 CPUs.

Update: According to a communication from Genesi, a Pegasos owner seeking to upgrade should not necessarily exchange his or her board where he or she bought it, but rather make sure to arrange this with a current Pegasos II reseller. (snx) (Translation: dm)
