Hans de Ruiter presented the DIY laptop kit for the A1222 motherboard during AmiWest 2017. There aren’t many details and it’s still just an idea, but the project could take off if there is enough of interest in the Amiga community. The AmigaOne A1222 motherboard will be based on a Freescale QorIQ P1022 32-bit e500v2 dual-core PowerPC processor. This is essentially the little brother of the new AmigaOne X5000 machines, but still offers genuine capabilities and gives the AmigaOne series and AmigaOS 4 a new breath of life. The AmigaOne A1222 motherboard will cost between €400 and € 500 and will ‘probably’ be released end 2017 or early 2018.
