Please!!

Make it a news item with all the specs and pricing in one go, rather than let it out in dribs and drabs.

I want one!

Thus is all subject to change, so don't complain to me when any or all of the items below do not make it onto the final device:

- It's a netbook. That means it isn't intended to compete with a desktop system. It is using an integrated graphics chip. No RadeonHD. No PA Semi.

- Price point will be the complete system, including AmigaOS 4. Hopefully, it will be around $300, but we cannot say this for sure yet so calculate a price of $300 to $500.

- The prototypes we have (plural, yes) all have 2 USB ports, internal audio with external jack plugs for headsets/microphone, Keyboard and touch-pad mouse.

- The prototypes have built-in Wireless and wired ethernet. Whether both or just one of them will be on the final device I do not know yet.

- Internal mass storage. Don't ask me about the capacity, few gigs AFAIR.

- The prototypes have 512 MB memory -I think-. No idea about the size of the final product.

- AmigaOS *is* running on the device, although in a very early state. There are questions to be answered still, so the tentative release date is somewhere near the middle of 2012.

That's all I can say right now without getting punishment from the Hyperion management :)

That's one of the best (if not the best) Amiga news I have ever seen since a very long time!! An official Amiga portable is something I've been dreaming for ages. Count me in that's sure.
To all involved: You rocks!!

Now, the last question which is interesting to know: the speed of the CPU. I read in google that some limebooks have 400mhz ppc, other ones have 800mhz ppc. So.. I assume it will be 400 then ?

I think i recall solie mentioning e300 core. Which i think goes up tp 800mhz. So maybe speed of the sam440. Which is ok for that price.

800 mhz will be more than enough for normal web-browsing and video playing, but 400 will be not. But cross-the fingers on 800version :)

400MHz will still be faster than the old Amiga PPC expansions (which NetSurf runs well on apparently). It's a netbook; it's not supposed to be fast, although I'm sure Hyperion will be keen for Timberwolf to be useable on it.

@Crhis

Netsurf not have necessary for today's needs javascript :( What mean that users will choice FF or OWB till netsurf will not have JS. Maybe when netsurf will have JS, it also will be slower.

And btw, 800mhz is not fast. Its "ok". Fast for aos4 its cpu which works at least at 1ghz and more.

In other words, while its ok even with 400mhz, with 800mhz it will attract much more interest from users who know about amigaos nothing. I personally will buy one anyway even with 400mhz, just because i can do/test some code, while not at home (pretty important moment).

But anyway, hope for 800mhz version (all the fingers on the holy-cross) :)

I think you're underestimating what PPC processors can do. My SAM is only 600MHz and it is running everything fine, including OWB. Not sure about DVDs, although I'd consider DVD playback essential for a netbook (they make incredibly useful portable DVD players).

If it can play DVDs and dual-boot Linux* then I would replace my current netbook with one of these.

* Normally I wouldn't care about this, but it's very useful to run non-Amiga software on my current netbook.

I think it will be like lime z9.
800MIPS CPU (400Mhz, no L2), 512M RAM.
Good as a netbook.

I think of it as a modern A600.
But perhaps it's named as A1-300.
It should outperform classic PPC Amigas and perhaps efika, nothing more.

I'll get one.

Great news !

Here is a scary question - What would happen to Hyperion if they introduced a $99 Netbook ?

Millionaires overnight ?

I think a 4 core PowerVR (as in ipad) is same GFX of an Xbox console.
