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

Hyperion Entertainment LogoHi everyone,

This is just in from AmiWest..

Hyperion Entertainment announces a netbook for AmigaOS 4!

Yes, it is true! πŸ™‚ (I know, I know.. I had to read the news a few times myself to prove that my eyes read the text correctly.. ;))

In a few months, you’ll actually be able to purchase a netbook running AmigaOS. I’m incredibly happy about this and I can’t wait to purchase it.

The price range will apparently be between $300 and $500 (subject to change) and the release date in Q1/Q2 2012.

That is what I call affordable hardware and I’m positive that this will attract many people to the world of AmigaOS 4. Way to go Hyperion!

Discussions are currently running wild on various message boards.. here’s a few of the threads that I’m following:

OS4 Netbook in 2012? at Amigaworld.net

OS4 netbook? at Amigans.net

Hyperion announce 12″ netbook running AmigaOS at Amiga.org

Enjoy the news! πŸ™‚

    • I remembered your comment when I saw the news concerning the AmigaOS 4 compatible netbook. πŸ˜‰ Looking forward to both previews and reviews as well. If the reviews are good, are you going to get one?

      • If the reviews are good then I will most likely get one! I’ve never used AmigaOS 4 but it looks like a fun OS to play on. Also, more hardware that can run the OS means there’s more incentive for developers to develop for the platform. πŸ˜€

        • Cool! AmigaOS 4 needs more software, especially native. I agree with what you say about more hardware and incentive. More users means more developers which again means more software for end-users. πŸ™‚ I really hope that this netbook will turbo-charge the increase in the amount of OS 4 users. Fingers crossed! πŸ™‚
