Yes, of course you need. I would be surprised, if we wouldn't get a permission from NXP/ IBM.
Otherwise we could call it Model P :-)

A further proposal:

Librebook PowerPC

There is room left for further "RISC" books ...

Several years ago "markos" has tried to ask for a new PowerPC based system:
He is or was also active on this forum.

Maybe he has some knowledge of crowdfunding or finding suppliers?

Ciao Roberto,

in the meantime, have you talked to Bill from Genesi?
What has come of it?

The only 4:3 notebooks I'm aware of are Panasonic ones.
16:9 are more ordinary these days. Maybe cheaper to get?

I have thought about that, too.


open source RISC noteBook :-)

What are the status in detail?

Notebook chassis:
Do we have an ODM? amigabill listed a few in his thread.
If not, maybe we could find someone in the plastics industry for producing our custom chassis?

Do we have a supplier of the display?
A few would prefer a 4:3 display. But I think it's cheaper to get a 16:9 display.
If it fits, I would prefer a 13,3" display. Otherwise 15,6"?
Resolution 1920x1080?
Webcam would be nice to have

We already have a designer/ manufacture of the mainboard?

Connectors/ interfaces
mDP, USB3, WLAN, Bluetooth
Thunderbolt, Gb LAN, Express card, eSATA?

Graphic card
You could e. g. buy one over there:

EUROCOM is also selling notebooks with upgradeable  MXM graphic cards:,331,0)ec
The smallest one I found, 15,6inch

Nice to have: Backlit, numpad, mechanical keyboard

As big/ powerful as possible

T4080 at 1,5GHz would be nice. T2080 is also okay

Edit: A M.2/M-Key (NVMe, 2280) slot would be cool

Funny post :-)
Why looking for a forum called PowerPC notebook?
Because of this:

What kind of advice are you looking for?

You are welcome :-)

Ciao Roberto,

sorry, I have forgotten to post the link, Bill mention it:
No further news since then.

Genesi has also made the EFIKA MX Smartbook, would be interesting to know, where they got/ made the chassis. Maybe we could use a slightly modified chassis of the EFIKA?
I searched the web, but didn't find a good source about chassis ...

How could I become "active"? I would like to.
Edit: I have subscribed the newsletter already.
