Begin with laptops.
I can assure you that running atari GEM apps on a laptop is just
that little touch exra that might convince people.
Because there has never been a Atari laptop with real power.
Ok, there were the stacy and the st-book, but they were really only
st's in a small box.
Since a few days now I have aranym on a laptop.
The laptop is 2 years old now. Not the fasted. For a atari however
it is already satisfactory fast.
I have tremendous fun with it.
I can run GEM apps sitting in my easy chair in the comfort
of my living room.
