Yes, we still are very active but it is difficult to keep all our channels updated. To keep you informed, you can follow us in twitter and facebook or even better you can visit our website and subscribe to the newsletter.

Read about our current activities in the article below. Our developers are testing current Linux distributions, setting up the best emulation environment for a Qoriq T2080 machine using Qemu and even experimenting with Yocto Project in order to evaluate a custom made distribution.

Am I missing something or is this forum dead? The latest posts I can find are from 2017... However you guys must still be active, right? I was reading an article about your project on Danish Amiga website, that is what brought me here. However I didn't pay much attention as to how fresh that article was. In the Amiga scene I'm aware of several notebook projects like A.l.i.c.e., Portia and a AmigaOne A1222/Tabor-based DIY laptop kit. And this project here has initally been mentioned as being a possible target platform for Amiga but been shifting toward Linux at least for now.

I know this is an old thread but since about every post seems to be from 2017 or older it doesn't matter anyway...  :-*

Yeah, is an option but if you have spare money there is also a donation option on this site. So it's more a question of what you personally want to support more.

Is a good practice to translate categories you need to go to posts->categories and select the "english" languages, then as for the pages and posts;
you have the sign plus (+) on the flag language choosed to add the translation starting from an existing page.
If you want to modify an existing translation you have the pencil icon.
If you want to view only translation in <your language> you need to select on top menu only <your language>.

The same we can do with tags posts->tags
news from the team / PowerPC Notebook Block Diagram done!
« Last post by deuteros on November 04, 2017, 10:36:15 PM »
Three months have passed since the kick-off of our campaign, and it is now time to share a status update.

We reached the amount of €7100 thanks to more than one hundred donors that contributed, in some cases with more than one donation. We are thinking about how to boost the donations to achieve the €12600 final goal. We have seen that a good number of donors are new followers of the project, so it seems that our communication activities successfully attracted new people. We now want to go even further, so we kindly ask everyone to share more and more our project, for example supporting its advertisement in online tech magazines and forums, websites and other media. To promote these activities, the project was presented last week end at two Linux Day events in Italy, one in Milan by Roberto I. and one in Bolzano/Bozen by Diego M. The very same week-end ACube advertised the project at the very successful Amiga32 event in Neuss (Germany) and many people have shown their interest. On November 11th, Philippe F. will give a presentation at the Alchimie 12 event in Tain l’Hermitage (France).

Do you want the electrical schematics to be ready by Christmas?
The solution is only one: prepare yourself for an active contribution, either by donating, and by involving more people!

PowerPC Notebook block diagram

Regarding the work in progress, ACube is working on the electrical schematics design and sent an early block diagram that was extensively discussed with our hardware core team of volunteers. After this discussion, in particular regarding an NDA component, we have arrived to a final version agreed by both sides: almost all components are identified. We are including PowerPC Notebook block diagram a block diagram of our PowerPC Notebook motherboard (without integrated circuit names). We will disclose all integrated circuit names when we will reach the required amount of donations to complete the electrical schematic, as agreed with ACube. Then, we will publish design files when a design phase is completely finished and tending to be error-free and fault-free. Before that, anyone wanting to actively collaborate in the design review can join and participate in our project and association.

In a nutshell, we are working hard to promote the campaign, and ACube is on track to accomplish phase one of the project. We see the light at the end of the tunnel! Keep it up!

Lastly we want to remember the importance of small recurrent donations. The possibility of having many people helping with a small amount of money monthly is very interesting for us as this will guarantee the constant work of the hardware designer.
Suggestions / Re: M2 or Sata?

M.2 and SATA are not comparable technologies.

M.2 is a port design that can leverage both SATA 3 and NVMe storage.
I guess you meant SATA 3 or NVMe. M.2 would be good to use anyhow as it saves a lot of space compared to 2.5" SSD's.
SATA SSD's are quite cost-effective, NMVe is quite a bit faster, but for now, much more expensive.
I think it's possible to implement M.2 with AHCI backwards compatibility so one can mount both SATA 3 and NVMe M.2 SSD's.

M.2 would be nice but to be honest i think it would up the cost above what may be aimed. So i would be happy with SATA 6.0 gbps.

Should the laptop support M2 storage devices or SATA ones?

What is the opinion of everyone here?

Yes, but don't forget the 3U HSF Assembly for POWER9 CPUs for 110$ :)
Anyway, 420$ for the latest and greatest CPU money can buy :o
