Suggestions / Re: M2 or Sata?

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.

Others OS / Re: MorphOS

With things progressing it seems Apple will go Intel sooner or later on their mobile devices IMO. I might be wrong tho...

This is just what I am feeling with the news circulating ATM. There has been a lot of new lately about Intel making ARM chips and the way Kaby lake looks, Intel might be late but they are a incredible powerful and have the resources to might be able to take over the mobile market.

Anyway i think we are getting bit off-topic now.

MorphOS is wonderful and i hope they keep a PPC version of the OS

Notebook chassis / Re: OS themed chassis
« on: August 31, 2016, 09:24:36 PM »
Amiga would also be cool. Maybe the same colors like the original Amiga beige :)
We have to pay attention on trademarks, then.

Exactly thats why the developer teams of the themed notebooks should be involved :)

Notebook chassis / OS themed chassis
« on: August 30, 2016, 10:06:31 PM »
Born from LarsPPC idea.

OS themed chassis?
Ok i realize it might be a expensive idea but an idea what so ever.

- Debian
- MorphOS
- BSD

of course the teams responsible for the OSes would have to have a hand in this but how about it?

Others OS / Re: MorphOS

I think the partnership between this project designers and MorphOS team would be just an ideal solution, here's why:

1. The "newest" notebook able to boot to MorphOS was made in 2005, so MorphOS team needs a new piece of hardware urgently.
2. PowerPC Notebook team's got hardware, but ain't got no software to run on it (like seriously guys, PowerPC based notebook running Debian sounds like a greeeeeeeeeeeeat no profit idea)
3. Both teams make an agreement.
4. PowerPC Notebook team is redesigning the mobo, so it could fit into a Powerbook G4 chassis. (Check my post in chassis thread on the forum)
5. It takes about a year for the MorphOS team to port their OS into this notebook, so in the meantime, PowerPC Notebook team is selling their mobo for Powerbook cases.
6. Both groups search for the manufacturer of a brand new chassis, with MorphOS logo on it, so it could be the genuine first Amiga-like laptop ever.
7. Chassis is ready, MorphOS has been successfully ported, second part of distribution can be started.
8. Pure profit.

What do you think, guys?

i do not think a MorphOS themed chassis is a bad idea if the MorphOS team would be onboard this train.

I think morphOS is jumping ship to x86 sooner or later ...

You might be right about that. There is a huge discussion about ARM vs. x86 and i have always been a a pro-ARM person (or should i say pro-RISC) but considering current development i actually think x86 might win this one. for awhile it seemed like Apple was jumping over to ARM and Windows getting ported but recently it won't be seeming like that is happening.

It also has been a long time since 3.9 was released  and a port to x86 might just be in the works atm. (my guesses of course)

It's impossible and it doesn't make sense. You can't sell a "Apple brand" notebook ...
You could only sell a mainboard that fits into the Powerbook case, but the customer has to put it into the case by it's own.
It's a nightmare.

It's a crackpot idea.

Easy on the language please.

I've just read that the new AMD mobile GPUs aren't Polaris. It's only a rebrand.
Anyway, AMD is the way to go :)

Only 480 and above are Polaris:

 I agree AMD will be a better first choice

There is also OWB for MorphOS built on webkit, I'm not sure how good it actually is compared to TenFourFox. but it could be an option.

There is also Timberwolf for AOS4 but I'm quite sure its quite outdated.

I vote 1920x1080 if it's something like 13''+.  I really like high def stuff but typically that makes it more expensive. I think this project would benefit from having a cheap model that will enable devs to buy it out of curiosity / on a whim. Shouldn't be too high end, at the same time the display should be good enough for very clear text, and have decent viewing angles / not too reflective.

I agree on that heigh end stuff is nice but we should keep the price in mind so curious people might get interested.

Yes a video player is a must i think, There are still source code from the last version of VLC for PPC around somewhere if anyone is upp for the task? But if someone have any better ideas for a better video player.

I am  not an expert on power but as long as it will provide enough power to run the machine and charge the battery at the same time I think we will benefit a lot from that since it will in time be easier to find replacement power cords and such.

General Discussion / Re: ETA?

What i believe is important to get people to start getting to take things serious and start to really get into this are:

First

- Final specs
- A picture of the laptop (chassis, ports etc.)

Second

- Show prototypes

I like USB-C and think that within a few years it will be standard on all external HDDs, mice and keyboards it might be a good idea to include atleast one port.

Thats a really good idea, the issue as i see it is to make it look nice.
