I would suspect you could get a old PC for about nothing and put AROS on it, and it would run faster then Windows or Linux due to its lower overhead.

It would also crash faster ;)

Really, very powerful PCs can be had for almost nothing - so, use the economies of scale the PC brought (that's what killed Amiga, its tightly coupled hardware and software couldn't keep up). Also more portable - like a laptop or netbook.

And, under PC OS, you will have better SSH, web browser, or Jabber clients...
