General Chat / AROS Laptop DELL latitude D520

I always wanted a stable and good laptop for AROS.
Some years ago ClusterUK and many others got that realised with fully support for ACER aspire one. This is still a ok platform for AROS but as web-browsing, emulation and many other tasks got more demanding the need for more powerfull hardware where needed.

The DELL latitiude D520 is far from something new, but the hardware is very simelar to ACER aspire one. The big difference is that the display res. is higher and the CPU is much faster. All that is needed is a replacement of the wi-fi card. Something that is very easy to do.

Search for this wi-fi card on e-bay

Atheros AR5BXB63

Warning: Some of these wi-fi cards are not working good. If you experience crashes or freeze quite frequently it is for sure the wi-fi card. You can contact me if you like one that is tested and I send one to you for 10 inkluded shiping to anywhere in the world.

This laptop can be found very cheap on e-bay.

I made many videos running AROS on this laptop.
I show 68k emulation and I can tell you that 060 demos with JIT enabled runs full speed on this computer.
I compared a AGA demo with A1200 060 50Hhz with this computer under emulation and this computer did some of the scenes more smooth.

You can also connect keyboard, usb joysticks, usb drives and montiors to this laptop. I use a 21" CRT monitor from VGA out on this laptop when I like to run classic Amiga 68k stuff like demos and games.

Have a look at for more info and videos.

AROS rocks!

General Chat / Classic Amiga 68k Emulation

I know o1i started work to bring port of WinUAE to AROS but not much is happening there.

Is there are way to motivate o1i or someone else to do this work. I guess money could be a motivation?

It is after all a very important part of a NG Amiga like system. It must be for abi v.0 also. Not only 64-bit abi v.1

The 68k emulator we have now is quite old.

AspireOS / About this distribuiton

AspireOS target specific hardware. To see what hardware, click link below.

I want AspireOS to look and feel as the classic AmigaOS.

AspireOS are for users and not developers.

There is a limited amount of software bundled with this distribution.
Reasons is:

1. I want to keep the files size down so can downloaded from the AROS Archives.
2. I think people can manage to download what they are interested in by themself.
3. I don't want to include unstable or buggy software. What I include are well tested and working good.
4. The ISO will fit on a CD. No DVD required.

If this does not fit your bill, use Icaros Desktop  :)

I was one of the top posters on aros-exec so most know me by the name Nikolaos. Greeks use Nikos and not the whole name, so now it is like that.
AROS, music and football is my hobby. AspireOS is my AROS distribution. Long live AROS. The best possible NG Amiga platform.
