I, too, am eagerly awaiting the arrival of this in the next few months, my friend.

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

Persia, You're just not wishing hard enough or we'd be to the chewy center by now.

I am looking forward to its release. Granted that it wont be my day to day machine, but it will be useful for when I have to travel. Lets hope that it gets released in the second quarter and maintains that price point.

Yeah highly unlikely to be my day to day machine either.

Whoops due date just slipped by.

Interesting read, we'll see what happens....they have 9 weeks left.

For diehard "classic is the only Amiga" camp the price point is low enough to take a gamble just to try OS4. If you don't like it sell it on I guess.

Buying used Powerbooks from nobs on scumbay is opening the door to all manner of madnesses. You get the decade old crud, pay for MOS and the machine dies two weeks later then what?

AROS + new x86 netbook is the only comparable setup really.

Actually, the New World PPC Macs are some of the best-built computers I've encountered. I've owned close to a dozen of them and only ever had one die, and that I'm pretty sure was due to accidental static discharge when I upgraded the RAM.

Not that I'd be opposed to picking up a modern PPC laptop to experiment with, if they do achieve a better price point than other OS4 gear, but I'd still put a G3/G4 PowerBook up against a Chinese netbook any day, when it comes to sturdiness.
