>7"TFT / 8.9"TFT

not really useable for serious work

>Memory:256MB(512MB optional)DDRII

256MB could be a problem using OWB and Compositing

>1xEthernet 1XWiFi(optional)

Wifi only optional?
Sorry but Wifi is a MUST for an (portable) Laptop and one of its main benefits (be compleatly wireless), otherwise you can use also a desktop (Sam..etc)

Compositing per se does not consume memory. The 3D eye candy effects consume the memory due to the way the layers (i.e. windows) are implemented. I can utilize the underlying IGraphics->Composite() function without having the 3D effects active at all. They are not one in the same.

Blaming "compositing" for memory issues is a common misconception started by the GUI prefs labels. The GUI prefs have since been rearranged and relabeled to try and remedy this misconception.

I dont wan't to flame here, it's not that easy for me to write what i really ment .

I like to use my Sam440ep for every days tasks. I like the composing-effects too. But i make heavy use of screens for everything so the 64Mb of my Sam are not enough also in 16Bit on 1600x1200 TFT. Thats a little pitty and i fall back to 16bit and compositing off.

But what i really wanted to say is, that this Lime-Notebook-Hardware isn't able to privide all nice Eye-Candys to the User due the restricted GFX-Memory.

I'm saving Money for the 460ex and then i will plug in a GFX-Card with much more memory to enjoy all benefits and eyecandies

Simple answer: NO, PPC is just not enough, since drivers are written just for specific hardware, or better to say, there are AmigaOS 4 versions that work just on certain boards.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amiga_OS_4#Compatible_hardware

It`s not even possible to install version of OS for one motherboard on other listed as compatable hardware.

That`s Hyperion policy, probably to keep track on how many they have sold of each version, to prevent piracy.

Even when buying current offer of SAM`s and probably X1000, its impossible to buy hardware without the OS, so now its "tied bags".

I know it does not look fair when compared to universal installs of Linux and Windows, but it`s more centric like MacOS X. Cannot be sold separately.
