Yeah I think many of us have been awaiting a laptop type miggy, so we can go to da beach, haha, and type some lyrics!

HAhaha, just for examples sake of course.

@Dandy

Ehm... care to elaborate of you beinged confused as to what?

Tower is heavy. Hard to put in a bag and cary around.

To a laptop you use a PSU and that is what you use for an A500/A1200 too.

Sorry but I don't know how much clearer it can be???

The point is that there is nothing that makes you think Amiga as much as a keyboard computer.



Keyboard computers make think TI99 4a, VIC20, PET, CBM, Tandy, Atari, etc. as well...

For everydays work I would refuse to have to work on a laptop.
Worst ergonomics, body / health damages pre-programmed if used for intense work for 8+ hours daily over the years.
I prefer a (power)tower underneath my desk for doing real work.

Sounds like a boring life. Me and my friends brought our computers to each other all the time. Even towers actually which made us realise why an A1200 kind of computer is to prefer when it comes to moving them around. People still do this, believe it or not.

I think that anyone with some brains understand what I meant since it's been used to refer to a certain kind of PC ever since the 80s if not longer. So if you want to act thick or if you are thick are most likely a liddle bit of both you can go ahead. You haven't written a single line worth reading that I've seen so why begin now. You've managed to show what level you're on and I will leave it to you to figure out if it's high, low or somewhere in between.

Or rather that's how you understood my writing but that is not the same as saying that you got it right. You can ask yourself how I could've meant that when I write about users wanting laptops? Isn't that two different buyers right there? But really, why explain it to someone that clearly are only here for one reason. But I guess that's what happens when life is boring.

Quote:

The point was that if you're an Amigan you take out the hardware, keep the empty case untill it gets yellow for no apparent reason and brags about it... no wait... that was you.

@Dandy

So are you gonna destroy this thread by acting like you don't understand anything of what I'm writing? If you got something to add I suggest that you PM me instead.

I do not think that you have anything to write that are worth answering but you could always try.

@Dandy

I don't get why you're being so defensive about laptops vs towers. Hotrod's generalisation seems completely innocuous to me. I like a laptop personally, but I like to be browsing the web on the sofa, not sat at a desk in a spare room.

I'd be amazed if it were laptop. The '500' name wouldn't make sense, and it's too much work to get OS4 supporting it. Given the situation with Sam 460 drivers, I think this project is going to be on familiar ground.

It's probably too early for a next-gen Sam, but you never know. Could be the upcoming FPGA Arcade but as a Minimig follow-up, '1200' would be a better number. Like others, I'd guess at a keyboard-case Sam.

- laptop ?
needs a lot of know how in power managemet display technoloy and a lot if investments for a production.
ACUBE would be insane doing it.

- all in one computer with keyboard
needs a lot of investments wenn you want to do it in the right way, you have to order a lot of part in high quantities if you want to get them cheap and if no one buys your product they are just luying around and you have to pay your debt ... not clever !

AN OCS demo is partly visable, the name of an classic OCS machine is used partially, ACUBE has some know how with OCS products ... description would fit for a price reduced Minimig with some minor updates, maybe standard formfactor and on board ARM module, maybe confired with AOS .

After confering with my people in low places I can say beyond an unreasonable
doubt that Acube will be making a multi-configurable Transformer style case for
their new single core PA6T based computer on a flexable-sheet motherboard.

Not if it is sold as an Amiga, doh



I'm sure you can come up with an example of WHEN & WHERE one of the above mentioned AIOs has been sold "as an Amiga"...

What I meant to say with this simply was that not just Amigas were sold in those AIO (all in one) form factor cases - there were other computers in such cases as well.
Therefor I do not automatically think"Amiga" when I see a computer in an AIO case.

After all It was you who wrote: "I think that it's better than just standard towers and laptops."
And in the sentence before this one you wrote about PCs and C64 - no mention of A500/A1200.
Perhaps it wouldn't be the worst idea if you'd start to read you own writings more carefully...

Fully agreed. If I had to carry my A4kPPC around "all the time" I would most likely also prefer a small lightweight.
But thing is that for me it is sufficiant to carry an USB stick to my friends and plug it into their computers if I wanna show them something - no need to move the entire equipment...

I don't know you, neither do I want to but if you got such big issues I suggest that you take a flight over here and settle this like a man. Or are you a sorry little geek that noone cares a rats ass about, you got bad self esteem and need to pick on someone else to feal that you're even worth something because you hate yourself so much? That seems very likely. Who in this world likes you? Does/did even your mom like you?

Stay behind your desk with your little rebuilt Amiga and stay the hell away from me! Got it you sick ####?!


May the mods judge your behaviour...

@clebin

I'm with you on the laptop v desktop, I love having my laptop while on the sofa.

Would the Minimig fit in a laptop case?

Ignoring the flame-fest, this made me laugh:

Anyway - if I take the train (I'm a commuter and use public transport exclusively) I can see perhaps one person using the laptop per month. So you certainly must be exaggerating.

You can see one of them here (website still under construction)...

Nah, I'll just do the waiting game and when this secret is unveiled I'll start yelling all over that I could have told you what it was right from the beginning in an unconcealed act of taking advantage of hindsight.

Mark my words!

@Dandy

Say may they do that. For someone trying to proof that he got an exciting life you do spend a lot of time writing crap proofing that your a prime example of what you shouldn't try to become in life. Wanna demonstrate your kung fu skills? Come on here and don't trip on your feet on your way here.

With the PM you had your chanse to be a man and come clean or to be a wuss. I thought that you would be a wuss and I was right, you've reached another low point. You got upset though so mission accomplished :) . I couldn't care less abou you as a persn or anything that you write. I found like 10 errors just taking a quick look so that sums you up. Horrible human being.

I still suspect it's something classic amiga related. Probably just a fantasy on my behalf, but given the sam's fpga socket (I dont have one, but this is accurate is it not?) and acube's experience with the minimig (Im aware it wasnt their design before anyone "enlightens" me) Id love some sort of fpga hardware emulation of ocs/ecs for Sam's+ OS4.x. Ive said it before, but that's one of the few things that'd make me jump onboard the OS4.x train. Not that Im disinterested now, but for me there's currently nothing inspiring me to pay the cost of entry.

@hotrod and dandy

I have no interest in taking sides, but damn, sure took y'all some long posts to say pretty much nothing :P
Much like anyone here Ive seen some unusual arguements, but that was right up there. Near as I can tell it basically stemmed from a discussion of preference of form factors? How this lead to such aggression is a noodle scratcher, but honestly, who gives a smeg. People can use and enjoy what the heck they like as far as Im concerned. It's hardly something to get worked up over.


Now to chime in on the desktop/towers vs. laptops discussion though, sitting back in the lounge on the sofa is hardly restricted to the realm of portable devices. Im currently sitting in my favorite rocker/recliner with a wireless keyboard on my lap and mouse on the arm of my chair (via media centre box connected to big screen lcd tv).

Just my 2 cents :)

Its a full Classic Amiga Implementation in FPGA for SAM440/SAM460ex

That would brake walls and windowpan!
