Finally over a decade later and I have my second AROS fully configured system


Firstly, for an Amiga, this is BLAZING fast, and it is Open Source Amiga compatible Operating System.


I have created an almost completely new system, in other words all parts are new apart from the Motherboard that is a refurbished model that has been chosen to give the best bang for buck for AROS fans.


If any of these specifications below make you question the choices then this IS NOT FOR YOU and you are welcome to build your own !!!


Building an AROS machine ready to go is very dificult due to drivers etc and the odd compromise you have to make.


This is a fantastic little computer and I hope you appreciate the effort that went into getting this together and making it great.


These are in very limited numbers and to be honest I just want to recoup the cost of paying a professional coder (Neil Cafferkey) a professional fee for creating the network driver to make this board fully supported. This driver will be released into the AROS repository Q1 next year so that all can benefit from it. The cost of this driver was supported by one of my wonderful Patreons, Peter Membrey, who paid the bulk of this driver cost to support the AROS community. If we sell a few then the profit will go into other AROS projects.
