Is this the laptop version I need to run MorphOS on it?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Apple-A1107-17-1-67MGz-Aluminum-PowerBook-G4-Laptop-160GB-HD-2GB-Mem-Superdrive-/151231109939?pt=Apple_Laptops&hash=item2336139b33

That is the ideal unit, but as mentioned before several models are supported.
The G3 iBooks are not supported, but all G4 iBooks are (like my 1.42 GHz model).
I haven't tried using Windows in a remote desktop, but it sounds like a neat option.

Unless you prefer to have more pixels when the PB5.9 (A1139) becomes the ideal unit....
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Well said, indeed I am still baffled why Vox when down the expensive, slower and less supported Sam460 to run MorphOS rather than just getting a Mini g4 for like $100?

Each to their own though, but the PPC Mac support is definitely a huge bonus of MorphOS.  When my A1XE was starting to act up I looked at my options, as you say the 460 is only around the same performance level as an A1XE/Pegasos, and in many ways inferior as it has less developed/finished drivers.  So the only option for an upgrade was to drop £3,000 on an X1000 which was out of the question so MorphOS on a cheap mini now satisfies my "NG" needs.

I do have SAM460ex and currently have no space for more computers.

"Dad" has a point here.
Both are 128MB vram models, but the A1139 supports higher resolutions.

That is not important for me. I d not care if MorphOS supports even more laptop models...this is the laptop model I want and I will buy and use for MorphOS:

Apple A1107 17" 1.67MGz Aluminum PowerBook G4 Laptop 160GB HD 2GB Mem Superdrive

In a month from now I will order this version of laptop and in two weeks from now I will buy MorphOS 3.5.

You need to buy the laptop first before you can buy a MorphOS licence for it. ;)
