Subject: OS4 netbook!

Hmm, both ssolie and Rogue has confirmed that there will be a netbook for os4.

That would be very interesting indeed :)


Price: $300 - $500 including OS4 license.
It's a specific AmigaOS product. PowerPC based.
Prototype has external VGA port.
Prototype can use external USB mouse and keyboard.
Delivered with OS4 preinstalled

Comments by Rogue:

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.

- It's NOT used Mac hardware
