Hey,

Title says it all - I know I can hardly believe it myself!!

Steven Solie announced this at AmiWest this evening - price range estimated at between $300-$500 - subject to change.

Finally an OS4 Amiga I can probably save up enough for! :)

It's been very interesting watching the AmiWest live feed. New USB cards for classic Amigas from Jens is great news too. :)

If this is actually what that description would imply (a reasonably capable small form-factor PPC laptop with well-documented hardware,) and it's really in that price range, I might actually be interested in getting one. Don't think I'd be running OS4 on it, but I'd still be all about having the hardware.

Actually, Steve said that it would not be available until the end of Q2 of 2012, not Q1, but still good news for AmigaOS4 users.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

Is it going to run AmigaOS natively or AmigaOS in emulation?

Because on #amigaworld

yeah, two munutes later they sent: AmiWest Correction: The Hyperion Netbook WIL NOT run #Amiga OS4. Will be capable of running E-UAE.

According to Hyperionmp on Amigaworld.net:

- "@kas1e

The device already exists and will be sourced in a special configuration from an OEM.

Hardware development is therefore 100% completed.

The quoted price includes the AmigaOS 4.x license.

AmigaOS is already running on the device."

It's great news. I'm going to get myself one when its released. :)

@Puni/Void

If it is really so it will be interesting to see how it compares to MorphOS :-)

I may be able to play with OS 4 some day after all, though something tells me the (if it releases) release date pricing will change to something more akin to $3000 - $5000. No OS included with the $3000 bundle, and you'll have to run Linux if you want to use the Wireless device.


Joking of course!
I really hope this comes to pass, be it for $600 if it needs be, so long as the CPU is at bare minimum 1Ghz, though 1.6 would be preferred. I was let down by the X1000 pricing, so this gives me hope once more, and if it fails...

...well I'll be taking MorphOS on the road with me soon too, so either way, I know I'm going to be satisfied! The MorphOS team always delivers!

I hope this comes to fruition add I will probably buy one for myself, but I fear this is just another announcement meant to stop some people getting a MorphOS Powerbook.
