Source: Wikipedia Unfortunately, I don't have any experience and very little knowledge of Acorn Computers, the company responsible for such venerable British machines as the Atom and BBC Micro. Well, perhaps I'll get my chance behind an Acorn after all: The company is rolling out a line of Notebook PC's. There isn't much info yet about these machines, but I suspect the only thing unique about them will be the brand name. I know I'd still like to have a Commodore branded laptop! Link via Engadget.

I have had some experience with both the BBC micro and the Acorn Archimedes computers. The Archimedes was quite a nice system with it's own windowing interface running RiscOS. There's quite a few emulators being ported to the machine, but you'll need the latest Archimedes systems to be able to run those full speed.
