Or AmigaOS 4.

Sorry, couldn't resist. :) But it's up to the OP whether he prefers AOS or MOS... but saying it's *only* MorphOS - well, even you must admit that that's not true!


For certain persons there is only one "choice" be it MOS or AmigaOS. In case of TMHG it can only be MOS (the other choices are technical inferior and/or too expensive in his view). Simple as that...

@TMHG

"OS4 ~ MorphOS != AROS"

Yes you are right. Aros runs natively on classic hardware without needing additional PPC or used Macs so Aros is different to OS4 and MorphOS :razz:


I guess you tried to make some kind of point there (not sure about what exactly though), but it still doesn't change the fact that OS4 ~ MorphOS != AROS. Not saying that AROS is bad or worse than OS4/MorphOS in any way, just that the two former has philosophical and technological features and ambitions that are similar, and that fundamentally differs from the latter. For this reason, the former two can (in a sense) be "grouped together", and they kind of compete about the same target audience. The latter doesn't. So when someone asks about whether there is some kind of laptop for OS4, it's not technically wrong to say "unfortunately no" but hint about the fact that MorphOS offers exactly that. Of course you (and everyone else) is free to hint about AROS on virtual machines as well (as has been done many times already in this thread), but chances are actually kind of big that this isn't at all what the OP cares about!

MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)

Netbook are supported for a long time already (at least some)

And yes Aros and MOS/AOS have different concepts f.e. in the integration of 68k (that is necessary because of Aros supporting lots of different hardware-platforms).

Well, the *only* way the answer could *ever* be "OS4" is if you have the third (unmentioned above) focus: The Boing Ball (TM) focus! :p :lol:

Eeh, Really?

The MorphOS laptops are here!

Where can I find an OS4 laptop?

No, but you could give AROS a try. ;)

Never mind. Didn't realise the thread was +1 page.

@Admins - I'm not a fan of the change to 15-posts per page. It's not the same as other Amiga forums (20-per page) and I'm sure it's not the same as it used to be. Hence not realisoing the thread had gone to >1 pages.

you might find this comparison table useful in your investigations.
..


just a small note:
PA6T supports at least 16GB of RAM. Is nemo somehow limited? The comparisson table indicates that maximum is 4GB???

and... ;-)
Memory bandwidth might be interesting to some buyer.
Most have 64bit interface, but IIRC SAM440ep has 32bit interface and x1000 has 128bit (2x64) interface.

and another note:
The x1000 CPU is dualcore, some buyer might be interested to be ready for multicore aware AOS.

and SAM440ep PCI slot is 33Mhz, not 66. The onboard GPU is on the 66Mhz interface of the SoC.

OS4, being a 32-bit operating system which reserves half the address space for error messages, is limited to (2^32)/2 = 2GB.

It would be surprising if Nemo was limited to 4GB though...

You didn't answer my question though, TMHG.

You are violating the we-don't-talk-to-TMHGM-about-AmigaNG-matters rule. This thread's painful death is on you, and you only.
