Does this come with the genuine physical AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition media? Does the AmigaForever Plus Edition now come with PPC support or am I missing something here. Just wondering.

So it's an HP thin client box running XP embedded. HP T5730/T5740?

HP T5730/T5740 - $60-$90, could be cheaper can buy these in bulk.
Amiga Forever Plus - $30
AmigaOS 4.1 FE - $28
WHDLoad - $30
Amiga Joystick to USB Adapter - $19
HDMI Cable - $5

Total - $172-$202

D-UAE -
   
$215 In the USA
$275 Internationally

So not a bad deal :-)

Is WHDLoad registered under the name of the purchaser, would it use the purchasers email address?

WHDLoad would be registered under my email I use for D-UAE Purposes.   It will be coming with the original physical media for AmigaOS 4.1, AmigaForever comes on a USB stick with the system. The latest WinUAE supports PPC Emulation.  The reason it includes AmigaForever Plus edition is so the machine is entirely legal with licenses for the ROMs and AmigaOS.     I will soon be posting a video of one of the new ones in operation :).  

So far its a pretty sweet set up,  Hoping to ramp up production in the spring when its warmer and I can set the paint booth up to start doing custom colors.  They should be ready to ship by Mid April.  

This project has really turned out to be a lot of fun.  I really like the small footprint of the thin clients.  

The First gens will be dropped to $100 shipped in the USA and 165 shipped internationally.   I have another run of 8 being prepared right now.  Just waiting on more parts to come in.  The next run of the first gens will be using the t5630 so its a bit smaller client,  but it runs everything great :)

Man, this sounds like fun.  I love doing old setups like this.  Taking old stuff and making it new again, etc.

Here's a picture of three laptops I just did, each one is from 9-12 years old. Each was given to me as "junk", to "send to electronics recycling". But instead I took pity on them. In each one I upgraded the processor to the fastest chip supported by the motherboard. I maxed out the ram, upgraded the hard drive to a larger, faster model, and upgraded the wireless card to modern standards. I also added Bluetooth to all of them and upgraded the video card and/or video memory. Each one then got a new battery, charger, heatsink/fan, and various other tweaks as needed, and a fresh install of the operating system.  Just like with Amiga's, breathing new life back into this old stuff really gives the "warm & fuzzies".  Kudos, carry on!  :D

Edit: you can see the edge of my "spare" Amiga 2000 underneath the left corner of the desk.  One of these days I'll get around to working on her!  ;)

I was aware that WinUAE had gained PPC support, but I didn't realize it was so good that WinUAE could now run OS 4.1. NICE!

 I'd really like to see a video of one of these running that!

 Anyhow, I think this thin client concept is very cool, emulation or not, it deserves attention, and the pricing isn't bad either. If I wasn't so broke, I order one off you and soon, but alas, I've other priorities in life right now.

 The best of luck to you and this ever so interesting venture!

 Next up, the D-UAE tablet when the new intel chips become affordable and Pc tablets cheaper? ;)

Well after a nasty email from Hyperion threatening me with legal action for purchasing a license for each D-UAE,  They are saying its not available to OEM manufacturers.  Well Im just a small time hobbyist lol.  Not running a darn computer company
So  I won't be able to include a copy of OS 4.1 with each one.  However since the end users of this system aren't building them,  You can purchase and install OS 4.1 on the machine yourself.  

Id rather not risk buku legal action against me just to make sure each one has a legit copy of OS 4.1

Glad to know that the bottom-feeding lawyers are still alive and well in  Amiga-land!  Just in time for the "Better Call Saul" premier this  weekend, which I'm sure they'll all be watching for more ideas!  

:angryfire:  :angryfire:  :angryfire:

This is almost as dumb as that other guy being threatened for £2000 for releasing that free "Smurf Rescue" game.  Geeze.  Guess they'd prefer to not have the sales!  :(

No %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!, the Smurf Rescue guy was threatened also? I need to read up on this!

 As for Hyper-jerks... ya I don't really care about their sensitivities. You are right, you are small time, there is no way you can hurt them, you can only help them really. They are STUPID for not encouraging and promoting your project.

Don't see why they should complain, you were getting them extra sales and due to the limitations of UAE it's not exactly treading on the toes of their PPC hardware partners.
