CBM USA Amiga competitor:AresOne
Its ARES One brend they are compiting, and I like the ARES package and AROS support

The AresOne 2010, just like its predecessor AresOne, is a complete PC system specifically assembled to be used with AROS. The hardware components were selected to get the most out of the current AROS version, and to be ready for future improvements. The AresOne 2010 is suitable for Amiga enthusiasts, friends of light HTPC systems, and experienced users, it is not intended for the average Windows user (please keep in mind that AROS, albeit progressing nicely, is still in development).


The current base model features the following components:
?ATX AM3 board w/ 4 memory sockets, Radeon HD4200 graphics and VT1708S high definition audio onboard
AMD Sempron CPU 2.7 GHz
1 GB RAM (DDR2 800)
MS-TECH LS-02 case incl. 400W power supply

You can certainly also upgrade certain components, please have a look at the configuration options.


The AROS Research Operating System is a lightweight, efficient and flexible desktop operating system, designed to help you make the most of your computer. It's an independent, portable and free project, aiming at being compatible with Amiga OS at the API level, while improving on it in many areas.

Additionally to AROS, the AresOne can be pre-installed with Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu or Windows, if you wish.

The AresOne also comes with the A-Live X software package, which contains Cinnamon Writer and a licence key for Frying Pan. As a bonus, the 68k Amiga version of Art Effect 4 comes bundled with the other AROS software.

We also include a special OEM version of Amiga Forever with the package. The latter is useful for UAE since it contains the required Kickstart and Workbench images (1.3 and 3.x) for UAE plus 50 games and 50 demos. If you need more Amiga Forever, you can also purchase the full version at a reduced price. Every AresOne customer gets a licence for the AMC software package, the program will be made available for download eventually.

A portion of the AresOne profits will be used to fund AROS projects, especially driver development and licensed application software.
