AROS on current laptop/tablet?
« on: February 15, 2015, 04:06:25 AM »
I've never followed AROS all that closely, but I'm thinking it might be fun to play with as a portable. Are there any laptops or tablets currently available that can run AROS natively? I'm not interested in a Linux-hosted distro - tried one of those not too long ago and was disappointed.

Thanks!

It should work on most. Try it on Virtual box first, before going through with an install.

Thanks for the reply. So driver support has advanced enough to the point where almost anything works? How about wireless?

better ask on aros-exec when you think about a model and are unsure

Compatibility list:

there are some tips on aspireos page:

Wifi is supported but not on every model. Again best is to ask on aros-exec if you think of a certain model
