Dear Friends:

I am very interested in buying an imica system. But I am gonna wait til aladdin 4d for aros comes out and make sure and runs stable on imica.So, i will wait then, but if the system gets good reviews then I will go for it.
Cheers !!!

@ clusteruk

Excelent work!  And very competitive pricing!

If I wasn't having two computers already, I would go for that one.

What is XP or linux performance on this board ? Can we install Macos x, just like minitab or eee pc ?


XP performance should be good, it is a Dual core 16ghz machine after all. Linux apparantly has issues but have not tried to install yet.


Dual system is a great advantage here.  Did you try Vista?  As for Linux, you definitely should check out xUbuntu.  This one is known to have fewest problems regarding hardware i.e. drivers stuff.  If it fails, maybe try some other leading distribution. Every system more on this board makes it even more powerful.

Not sure if Mac OS X.5 is distributed alone.

Planned soon: an OS4 system
Shortly then: a MOS notebook (wifi is a must-have)

I did actually try to install UBuntu but it failed.

The system comes with a CD of drivers for XP and Vista.

Oh and I assume everybody realised I meant 1.6ghz not 16ghz ;-)

interesting.  What native amiga software can run on it, without E-UAE etc. I guess what can run on AROS?

Basically all Aros compiled software and just about every Amiga 68k application I have ever run.

Maybe the currency conversion is causing my confusion, but what do you get for £250?   Is this just the hardware?  All this hardware is off-the-shelf, and available rather cheap.  I assume with the iMica your getting something turn key?

You need to do a hack to install Ubuntu, but other Linux distros work out of the box.

Not even a hack, just a simple BIOS reconfiguration:

Need to disable LAN support in BIOS to install Operating System (OS)
