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.

I'm not comparing it with Windows, I'm comparing it with the rest of the world. I'm comparing it with PCs where you can do video editing with your digital camcorder, photo editing with your 8MP camera, watch DVDs, make video calls over the net, play 3D MMORPGs on wide screens. You know, things that people do in 2007.
Many of them also do that on a mobile way.

And please read posts carefully before replying; look at what I said about the price.

You, good luck with finding that kind of software for AmigaOS/MorphOS anyway, just use a wintel or mac for that and use the Amiga for fun/recreational use ;)

It's not only the fact there isn't the software, the problem here is that with such a machine you're not going to have it, never!
I'm an Haiku fan, and you know how it can barely surf the net. But at least it has the potential to do everything, I don't have to spend tons of money to play with it because it runs on most stock PCs, I can use it on the road and I don't even have to stop my workflow in Windows or Mac thanks to VMWare.
