But the strong point of netbooks are webbrowsing and multimedia, but i can't see os4 webbrowsing an advantage over x86 netbooks...

This is very exciting. Hope to finally get an AmigaOS4 system, and a great reason for getting better in coding. Purpose and reason. Lovely.

[...] New USB cards for classic Amigas from Jens is great news too. :)

Really!?!
Where can I/we read some details? (interface, specs, stack used, price).
If any...

Firefox is good news with this, it would only require fully working and fast flash plugin

With that price it doesn't need to have any advantage over x86/window/LINUX netbooks,  but it needs to be working solution.

Well what would be price of mobo? This proves that is possible to manufacture even more economic desktop solution and I want it! I really doesn't care mhzs, it just must be faster than my current 060 amiga

The advantage is that it runs AmigaOS4, which if you are an enthusiast of the latter but can't afford or justify the price of a higher spec system, is all the advantage you need.

People don't buy AmigaOS4 or MorphOS compatible hardware to be their main media centres or web clients, even if on higher end PPCs they don't completely suck at it. And if they do, they must be a bit mad, because you can put together a cheap as chips PC that will toast any G4 class system for the task.

Nope, people buy this stuff because it allows them to indulge their amiga habit. Anything that allows them to do it for less is good news as far as I am concerned.

Who needs Flash anymore?  Not me, I won't miss flash adverts and relatively crap free flash games that are surrounded by flash adverts all over the page.  HTML5 will make a lot of inroads over the next few years.  Flash is slow on Macs (ok its got better over the years), Flash isn't support on iPad, Flash quickly drains laptop battery life, Flash is proprietary (sp) software, Flash isn't available on anything but PCs and Macs, Flash is dying a slow death.  HTML5 is the rising through the ashes.

I wouldn't get your hopes up on that, Adobe doesn't really give a damn about platforms that aren't the mainest of the mainstream (look at how long smartphones and tablets had to be a big thing before there was an ARM Flash port.) If Lightspark gets its act together it might be worth a port, but don't count on getting YouTube any time soon.

That's exactly why this is way, way better news than the X1000. At this price it's an obvious moderate hobby purchase, not a big-bucks trophy item for die-hards, and that's apt to appeal to a lot more than just the few most dedicated OS4 die-hards. It's still not quite as cost-effective as a refurbished PowerBook, but then it's new hardware, not used, so what the hey.

I know that it's kind of a chicken-and-egg problem (Flash won't die while HTML5 is still only starting to gain acceptance, HTML5 won't gain real acceptance while Flash lives,) but there's still a lot of sites that are Flash-dependent, and some of them are even worthwhile. The Escapist, for example, only offers HTML5 video to subscribers, and while I loves me some Zero Punctuation, I'm sure as hell not going to shell out just to be able to watch it on platforms that don't support Flash.

This must be targeted to main stream? At least partially?

They needed to manufacture quite many of them, to get price that low? So it woun't be possible to sell them all to Amiga scene users.

It could be small succeed to Hyperion and give them needed income to get OS developement more speedy

If the hardware already exists, then it's likely simply a packaging of OS4 with a branded version of something that's already in mass production; I wouldn't worry about availability.

It is not already in mass production, we would know that already.

But you are at least partially right, hardaware already exist, but I belive it is OS4 pruduct only.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but did Rogue said so in Amigaworld.net? I mean it is manufactured just for A OS4? I don't belive that is planned to be OS4 product at least originally? Maybe LimePPC laptop with new brand?
