R-Comp releases new 17inch RISCBook laptop

Posted by Mark Stephens on 08:21, 5/11/2019 |
 
R-Comp had so many exciting developments at the recent London Show that you may have missed the other new laptop on their stand.

The RISCBook is a Windows 10 laptop, all setup to run RISC OS 4+ under emulation. So it can serve as a combined system, offering both Windows and RISC OS on one machine, with easy switching and integration.
 
With a 17inch IPS screen (which looked VERY nice on the model R-Comp had on their stand), this is not a ultra, ultra-portable. It is a high end spec machine (i5 intel chip, 8 or 16 gigs of RAM, SSD, DVD-writer) which should run Windows and RISC OS fast enough for most users and provide a single, portable machine for all your Computing needs. Prices start at 899 pounds for a system.
 
It nicely compliments the ARMBook, which offers a much more compact, 'less powerful' RISC OS/Linux system with better batter life and a smaller screen. The classic portable dilemma dilemma for you of speed/power/screen size versus portability...
 
Contact R-Comp for more details on both their laptops.
