...and seems to be the killer of the AmigaOneX1000!!!
At this price and without bad surprise, I'd be very interested.

I'm guessing it will be around 400-600Mhz, which should still be enough for AmigaOS.

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

Because on #amigaworld


Without going into specifics, to the best of my knowledge, it's a PPC machine.

Well, OS 4.1 actually runs quite nicely on my 240MHz BlizzardPPC. The biggest bottlenecks are, aside from the total lack of L2 cache, the fact I'm using the original A1200 ports for everything (motherboard IDE, PCMCIA network) and slow 60ns RAM (compared to anything more recent). Of course, I'm also using an RTG card which helps enormously over AGA. So yes, it should be sufficient.

Ignore the second tweet NomadofNorad posted. I missed a few keywords from Steve in my excitement to tweet about it!

I'm all giddy like a school girl!

Hmm. I'd like to see the specifics, myself, at least as they stand at this point. If it is a PPC machine, that's pretty interesting - if it's not, it's just another low-end PC laptop.

If Steve Solie announced it, it wouldn't be an OS 3 machine.  It would have to be OS 4.

@MobbyG

Thank you for verification.

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.


Well, the MorphBook is G4 power machine so they are in different leagues.

And after all, it is a free world so there is nothing wrong about following AROS and MorphOS foot steps (AROS has been mobile long time already).

hmm "the hardware exists" makes me worry a bit. what small size ppc motherboards exist that would fit inside a netbook case that already exist and can just be sourced from an oem??...  besides efika, what else is there?

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. :)


nice surprise from the show:) now you can change your sig to read AROS for your PC and AmigaOS  or AspireOS for your netbook;)

Link works here in the U.S.
It's quite a lengthy thread developing.
Patience, it'll still be there.

Ooo, is this true? I love tiny machines. I think 12" is pushing the "netbook" definition into "small notebook" territory, but that's just nitpicking.

The OS4 guys are finally speaking my language again :)
