RISCBook Laptops

The latest mobile technology
meets RISC OS

lptop.png - 3309 bytes The RISCBook was the first solution to marry the latest mobile computing of Intel's Centrino technology with the RISC OS operating system. The combination of high-performance/ low-power processors (a concept highly familiar to existing RISC OS users!) to provide longer battery life, and also incorporates technologies such as wireless networking for a truly mobile computing solution was quite a revelation! Over time, our range has grown and developed, but these founding principles - performance, mobility and quality - still drive all our laptops.

Please click on this link to read more general information on our laptop machines. The details below are for specific models. We strongly recommend you read the background before reading the details below.

Please note that the models below are representative of what we can offer - if you have a specification or price point in mind, please phone, and we'll usually be able to offer a much wider variety.

RISCBook Go! from £349 inc

The new RISCBook Go! is designed to provide a truly mobile system, bridging the world of laptop and tablet. With a stunning, folding 11.6 inch screen, and full keyboard (including RISC OS-friendly function keys, break and menu etc), this laptop offers long battery life (quoted as 10+ hours) and a wide array of modern features - bluetooth, latest Wifi, USB 3 (inc type-C) and more. It offers both RISC OS and Windows on the go, at a very attractive price. Not as nippy as the more expensive RISCBooks, it still offers a very pleasant experience in both operating systems, and can handle HD video on services like iPlayer or YouTube.

rbse.gif - 3717 bytes This is a special edition with faster, dual core (or quad!) processor, with DVD writing, 4Gb of RAM, Solid State Disc, RISC OS Adjust 4.39 and various additional nice features. The widescreen desktop is very appealing for RISC OS users, because you gain lots of additional horizontal space, which does wonders for a cluttered iconbar (you can never have enough iconbar space!). You can work on two documents side by side, or easily view a landscape page on the screen. Price circa £1000inc.
