Well, it COULD be like the Commodore magazines of 1992,in which the same "news" and  speculation/wishful thinking was repeated issue after issue;and then the story was repeated in the last months of the Amiga magazines.And by  magazines I refer to those available  on newstands or even in the computer shops ,not  online or spare room publications.
 Come to think of it,most Amiga sites DO regurgitate the same discussions and complaints endlessly.
 It is good to take a look around at the rest of the world once in a while.

irrelevant? ever heard of amiga forever? it can run on such an irrelevant machine. i mean  set it up right and you can have an amiga on netbook. then again another thing called aros can also run on it making this a cheap amiga. so i consider this very relevant.
The only stupid question is a question not asked.

Had a HP 2133.  Loved it.  Ran XP like  a dream.  was my portable media player  , retro games emulator, and net machine.  Till the motherboard died 3 months in.  And 4 weeks later.  Then I sold it.

When the dual core A9s come out for netbooks, we will see growth in netbook market.   I plan to buy a netbook in the fall or winter.  Should have some really good choices by then based on my needs.

What nonsense - the entire point of netbooks is that they are small. A laptop with a 12" display is not particularly small - what you have then is a regular laptop. Anything beyond 10" is certainly not a netbook in my ... book.

I just love my Asus. It does not make sense to me to buy a big notebook if it is intended to be portable.

This site really should just get around to changing its name to mac.org.

The amount of macsturbation threads really need to stop.


I agree, sometimes the mac propaganda here is sick.

Macsturbation  Ha! I love it!

I have a compaq mini that works great. I have a dvd player for watching movies (portable and one connected to my hdtv) What I needed was a small laptop for taking to class and this works perfectly. All around me are these giant laptops that take up most of the desk and you need a bag to carry them and their power brick. I carry my netbook like a paperback book and it lasts over 5 hours in a charge.
I use my desktop for games but this little netbook has suprised me on what it can do graphically. And yes I do have steam installed on it.
Oh yeah?!?
Well your stupid bit is set,
and its read only!

This forum is for amiga users. It may come as a surprise to some, but most amiga users also own and have interests involving other systems too. They are perfectly free to talk about them in the forum areas for other platforms, such as this one.

Ahh, but when I posted my comment, it was on the frontpage along with all the other news items.
And I could not see any reason why this should be an AMIGA news item.

Regarding Amiga Forever, my copy of amiga forever runs on every wintel setup I have. So in the light of that, I guess any amd/intel/ms news would be equally relevant here then.

If I want Mac news I will go to the relevant places, if I want MS news, well you know what I mean right?

I was in no way propagating mac laptops merely stating the 12" models are my "netbooks", the Air is definitely a terrible machine that should lie with the A600 as the biggest "oops" in industry
My machines:
PowerMac G4 MDD 1.5ghz 1.25GB 10.5.8 & MOS 2.7
Mac Mini C2D 10.6.8 2GHz 3GB 250GB HDD
MacBook Retina 16GB 256GB SSD 10.8
iPad 2

Need a part for a PC or Mac? PM me, I\'ll let you know if I come across it.

OS X trumps Windows on every level.

MorphOS, OS4 and Classic Amiga systems are the only ones who are real \'Amigas\', not that joke AROS or Amiga Forever.

Talking about macsturbation (haha nice one)... I have my iBook G4 from 2005 that I have little use for now I have a iMac for home and a intel Mac Mini for work.

I understand AROS can be installed on a PPC Mac Mini, but has any one ever had any luck getting AROS to work on an iBook?  If not, why not?  Whats the real difference between the two?  Some kind of BIOS/firmware issue?
