Amiga & AROS Yes, we are continuing our new-found fascination with the Amiga platform, by reporting to you straight from the floors of AmiWest and Pianeta Amiga. Chris Handley consolidated all the information from these two Amiga shows into one handy post, and the future of the AmigaOS looks bright indeed! Update: More planned features have emerged. Read on for the update.

Thom, didn't your review say that the Sam440ep board had only 128mb of memory, and was non-upgradeable?


That was MorphOS on the EFIKA. Try to keep up.

LOL!

Trying to... The EFIKA isn't available anymore, correct?

So, that leaves the SAM as the only currently produced board to run both AmigaOS and MorphOS.

The Efika is still available newly - it runs MorphOS, but not AOS4.
Sam is also avaialble newly and runs AOS4, but not MorphOS.
Mac Mini is cheaply available and runs MorphOS, but is not new. An illegal semi finished AOS4 port is reported to exist, too.
PegasosII is available used only and runs MorphOS and AOS4.
Pegasos 1 is available used and runs MorphOS, but not AOS4
A1 & µA1 are available used and run AOS4, but not MorphOS.
ppc cards for Amiga 3000/4000 and 1200 are availabe used and run MorphOS 1.4.5 (free of charge) and an outdated version of AOS4.

IMHO the smartest choice is a Mac Mini. It is super fast and runs very, very stable.
