Welcome to the home page of the Apple IIgs Laptop project. While many people over the years have talked about this project in one respect or another, the dreaming can finally stop. The future is here for the IIgs.
While we think the other efforts out there are great starts, life with the IIgs should be fuller and more mobile. Key features of the new machines will include all the specs you would want from a real machine.
Coming in July 2012 will be the next generation portable Apple IIgs.
The all-new A2GS-L01
-- ROM01 Apple IIgs Motherboard
-- 15" RGB LCD output-- 8mb of RAM *
-- Ethernet connectivity via Uthernet Card **
-- Compact Flash HDD ***
-- TDX Stereo Sound Card
-- ADB Touch Pad
-- Transwarp IIgs Capable ****
-- Built in Battery with enough juice to run at least 225 minutes fully loaded****

The really cool features of the machines go far beyond the internal components. We think that everyone will enjoy the other features of the Laptop IIgs including:
-- Low power consumption
-- Easily upgraded
-- Long Life Battery
