This is particularly great news for oldschool Commodore Amiga fans, Arstechnica have reported today that Amiga Inc. plan to unveil two new systems in the near future based on the PowerPC architecture, and they will run AmigaOS 4.0.

Amiga Inc., the company that purchased the rights to the Amiga line of computers back in 1999, has risen from its perpetual slumber to announce a new line of PowerPC-based computers that will run Amiga OS. The first machine will be a "consumer-level" system that will run at around $500, to be followed up with a more powerful system for $1,500. Manufacturing information, availability, and detailed specifications are promised to follow next week.

The hardware designs are the result of a partnership with ACK Software Controls, Inc., a company headed by Adam Kowalczyk. "I have been working on these designs with Amiga for almost 12 months and have been able to create two new designs that will fully support the needs and desires of today's Amiga user, while opening the doors for new users," Kowalczyk said in a statement.
