Video interview with Trevor Dickinson (A-EON)
During the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 2017, the Youtube channel "TheGuruMeditation" has recorded an interview with Trevor Dickinson (A-EON). In the video, which lasts about 23 minutes, Dickinson has talked about the AmigaOne computers and the A.L.I.C.E. laptop, which he presented at the festival, about his goals with A-EON and his passion about the Amiga.

US trader stopped cooperation with A-EON/Amigakit
A message on the homepage of the webshop of the US trader "Amiga On The Lake" (AOTL), which was opened in September last year, informs, that they will "no longer support A-EON or AmigaKit in any way, shape or form."

This step is not justified by the maintainer of the shop in any way. It is only refered to "experience during the last 8 months in regards to both companies." In many forums it is speculated, that the sudden termination of cooperation is related to the price setting of Amigakit: Actually three days ago before the publication of the message of AOTL, AmigaKit did offer X5000 full systems for the first time - this offer was not gone public by Amigakit itself but was reported by users.

While Amigakit explained in a thread on, that they will not comment any discussions with partner in public, at Amitopia some lines from a statement of Trevor Dicksinson were quoted: According to that, all traders - including Amigakit - are delivered by A-EON offering same conditions to all. Amigakit sells the systems for the price which A-EON recommends in adverts since last October for a basic system. Any webshop is free to offer systems to a higher price which are better equipped.

FPGA accelerator board: Vampire available in shops
Since about a year the Vampire accelerator boards have been no longer manually put together which made it more expensible but also enabled mass production. Therefore meanwhile diverse shops can be delivered: Relec (Switzerland) and Amigakit (Great Britain) offers the accelerator board - although AmigaKit has announced that the "initial batch quickly sold out within a few hours."
