|I was thinking.|
If you make a run of machines, say 250, and that's it, then there isn't any way for more to "get-on-the-bandwagon".
Make only 20 available in the very first run.
Sell 5 to the USA, 2 -- Canada, 3 -- England, 2 France, 3 Germany, 2 Spain, 3 Italy, and maybe a couple more in a couple of other countries? (That list is 20 Amigas.)
Sell it to people in cities that have user groups (or actual user groups willing to shell out), and the persons in question are willing to bring them to the groups to play with.
That way, you have "buzz". When people can touch, taste, smell it, they may be waaaaaayyyy more willing to go for the unit?
Make an extra one to ship to Ars Technica, or Tom's Hardware, or even say, Wired Magazine or a PC games magazine!!!
I think that on AmigaWorld.Net, they could raise enough to send ONE to a magazine. It would be a measly $10 over ~120 members. I think there may even be enough people here now to raise it.
In fact, I would start a bidding war with the magazines for them to pay YOU to review it, as there's only ONE available for them to gawk at! (I'm sure that if only ONE magazine had a review of it, that their increased sales could cover them buying one NatAmi.)
