Again with the laptopsBy Chris Williams. Published: 6th Dec 2003, 00:10:59 | Permalink | Printable
R-Comp. CJE. Microbits. WhateverR-Comp have decided to join the portable VirtualRiscPC-SE bandwagon this week, along with other noted dealers, and offer the shockingly original and novel deal of bundling RISC OS on a PC laptop. VirtualRiscPC-SE. Windows laptop. RISC OS 4. You know the score.
A quick money making exercise? A proud dream to bind Windows and RISC OS toegther for the good of the platform? It's your call, depending on how many cynical pills you've consumed today.
R-Comp's new RISCBook features a 1.4GHz Intel processor, which uses Intel's Centrino technology that's designed specifically for mobile use, 256MB of RAM, 40GB hard disc, wireless and wired networking although no screen size is given.
CJE Micros are also offering a range of PC laptops that are sourced from the same bulk manufacturer that MicroDigital use in their Alpha range. Microbits are offering a new VRPC-SE desktop machine, the Deskstar. Real imaginative, IBM will be impressed.
We're now definiately spoilt for choice. We'll update our prices table after we've recovered from this weekend's Debian UK Christmas party.

Iyonix emulator mulled by developer
The open source machine emulator GXEmul could be used to create an Iyonix emulator for RISC OS users and testers of ROOL ROM images, says one prominent coder. GXEmul already includes emulation of Intel's 80321 chip, the processor used in the Iyonix, and can run NetBSD on hardware similar to Castle's computer. Anyone interested in taking a closer look can apply John-Mark Bell's initial patch to the source code.
