Laptop - my kingdom for an AROS laptop

So, my classic amigas are turbocharged and my little eeebox is running happy with AROS. I need a laptop ... though.
From what I understand the Aspire One are AROS-friendly, not so easy to find though. But after a hard week of sniffing the secondhand market I found :

"Acer Aspire One AOA150-BGB - 1GB - 160GB - 3G- Windows - Blue
Processor - Intel Atom N270 / 1.6 GHz
RAM - 1 GB
Hard Drive - 160 GB"

Will this one have a high probability to work or a low one?
;)

I think Nikolaos has one of these, but of course best to confirm with him if this is the exact same model. For something with a bit more grunt than the Atom you could look towards one of the supported Compaqs or Dells.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Yep the atom is kind of weak I have it in my Aros - eeebox.
I've only peeked at https://sites.google.com/site/arosaspireone/about-aspire-one and there is one Dell listed (if I change the wifi card) but I haven't found any of those for sale yet. The weak aspire will do for now I think if it is possible to get it working.

Too bad - none of them for sale - or the DELL D520. I'll wait for another week then, thanks for helping!

Sweden, "blocket" and "tradera", I really like my swedish keyboards.. unfortunately. Since I ordered wifi cards I'm thinking of getting a laptop that works with everything else and switch wifis. I have some old Asus left, the lenovos went for charity, but a 3-year old laptop is not hard to find, I could buy a cheap new one if it wouold work :)
Trial and error.. I guess. Need to get some coding done for AROS.. and quick! :)
