elwis: The best laptop I would not say. What I can say is that AROS runs great with that thing as everything is supported. Be sure it is the ACER aspire one a110.
As you know it is not possible to change gfx-card on a laptop. If you have to use AROS in VESA modes it is boring I think. ACER aspire one even with quite weak gfx-card at least give you native gfx and hardware 3D.
I know there are some older laptops with Nvidia that works with AROS. I just don't know the models.
I will try this laptop in a couple of days.
HP Laptop Compaq nc6320
I bring back my results. Still only Intel gfx, but the same as in Aspire One so should work good with hell of a lot faster CPU as it is Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 / 2 GHz
Change wi-fi card is easy on almost all laptops. That is hopefully all that I have to do. If I'm realy unlucky sound does not work but thankfully I had good luck to have sound working on the laptops I tried with AROS.

Sounds ok to me. I rather see a cheap laptop. I like something portable with a screen. Not something you need to connect to a screen.

You don't want I OWB to be continued. What you want is Odyssey. Just to clear that up. I know it can be confusing.

This topic been split as many did not want AROS to be for any specific hardware. Me on the other hand always fough for that, as it makes a reliable platform. The need for all kind of drivers is also insane. With our little platform it would be almost impossible.
ACER aspire one a110 is the hardware you can rely on but as the world moves on it is quite outdated. It is still a cool computer for AROS I must say.

First it was OWB and after a much better more compatible version called Odyssey. Deadwood did all the work on the AROS version and he is gone. Don't wait for new version as noone is working on it.

james007: Sure would but as there are no native drivers for either sound, gfx or sound we talking a lot of work vs only new gfx drivers for i386. + software might be difficult to port over like Odyssey web-browser that I would consider the
most important app.. that is absolutly nescessary for any OS

Why do we have OWB in the abi v.1 build system and not Odyssey? That is something I been wondering.
Would be very nice if that could change since OWB, the old version is quite messy.

The focus should be 64-bit but as we have limited hardware support, what I have this is supported with native gfx 2d and 3d is 32-bit.
Would like to see some bounty to get native support for intelHD 2d and 3d.
I would put 200£ in that bounty and could even give the developer some laptop with intelHD chip to be supported for testing.

Maybe Mobile Intel HM70 Express.

We could use something like Acer Aspire One 756. Would be easy to find cheap and just change the wi-fi card to atheros. We would have have a nice fully supported 64-bit computer.

Just a little report from trying out latest night build.

Boot from CD all good. Installed to usb storage device just fine.

Problem booting from usb-storage device. All I could see was GRUB in the left upper corner and a blinking cursor to the side of it.

I booted from CD again and selected mode and when started to load I took out the CD and AROS loaded from USB storage device.

After boot it seamed fine running native gfx. Intelgma. 3D does not work hardware accellerated. I tried the VESA demos.

I could not get online. Something wrong there using atheros5000.device. It does not scan for wi-fi networks. Shows nothing. I know this is working with abi v.0 on same laptop.
