    Netbook for AmigaOS 4! (you better believe it!)

    Yes, it's true. A netbook for AmigaOS 4 will be released in Q1/Q2 2012. Price range $300-$500, AmigaOS pre-installed and included in the price.

    I'm going to get one.. are you?

    I've written a short entry in my blog about it. If you're interested, check it out:

    Cool. Any mention of specs yet? I'm assuming this will still be PPC based?

    Interested too, looks nice.

    Yes, it will be PowerPC though, using e300 processors from FreeScale which they go up to 800MHz.

    An 800MHz PPC would definitely be interesting. And a portable notebook would make AmigaOS actually useful as PPC is a lot less power hungry than any intel CPU so might also mean longer battery life.

    No. I expect they will be expensive and I don't have any money at the moment.

    If the price will stay between $300-$500, I will acquire one.

    If you do get one please take some pictures of it for us to see it, and also post something about what you think of it. Would be great to find out.
