From their website: "The prices are 111.11 EUR for one PowerBook G4 system, iBook G4 or Power Mac G5, 79 EUR for one eMac, Mac mini G4, Pegasos I, Pegasos II or PowerMac G4, and 49 EUR for one EfikaPPC system"


I quoted the 111(ish) EUR price because that is the only hardware I own that can run MorphOS. However that powerbook is on its last legs, and as was pointed out before none of that (apple) hardware is really supported.

I also, if people look above in the posts, asked for people to explain to me why this variable pricing scheme is a good thing, or at the very least makes sense.

I suspect I know the reason why the MorphOS team are doing it, but that doesn't mean it is a great idea. And can I point out every piece of hardware on that list is discontinued?

If I still owned actual AmigaOS compatible hardware, I think I would prefer to run AmigaOS. Then I would at least get the benefit of better compatibility.

But you're sort of right - why the hell did I buy an old G4, upgraded it with hard to come by parts and install some obscure overpriced OS developed by three guys and a cat?


Well if you put it that way, it actually sounds more appealing ;)
