Morphos The Efika motherboard is now available for the promised pricetag of USD 99. On top of that, MorphOS 1.5 2.0 is apparently on its way, and it will support hardware accelerated transparent windows, among other things. Screenshots and pictures can be found at MorphZone. As promised, MorphOS 2.0 will run on the Efika.

At $100 USD, at least it is at an "I can afford to buy this for entertainment" price. And if it actually turns out to be useful, all the better!

I do agree that measuring speed by MHz alone, or even by MHz and RAM, is pretty lame. I play with old computers, and can tell you that there is a lot of stuff that you can do on them that most people think is impossible with anything less than a modern computer. Then again, some algorithms are naturally CPU and RAM intensive -- so just make sure you're buying what you think you're buying.
