Unfortunately, I've given all the info I have to give. It'd just feel weird bringing it up randomly, and I don't know what job he has, too, so if the topic of conversation ever swings back to it I might be able to update you all. Just don't like.being randomly pushy about work stuff.

I have seen something of this Power-based machine from Freescale / NXP. It should be a laptop that apparently features a Power CPU with Freescale's e6500 cores, 1.8 GHZ clock. Of course this CPU is already several years old, it is not recent but it is still interesting to follow and I hope to see something concrete soon. From what they say it should also be able to run Amiga OS 4, bringing in fact the Amiga operating system in lap top ... We'll see ...

No, that's a proposed new PowerPC laptop. This one is an actually extant, running system.

Ah I understand, I thought there was talk of that laptop in the works.  In any case, in my opinion this laptop is to be followed, I think it may be interesting for us ... We'll see.

Didn't Open Desktop Workstations have a Freescale sticker on them at one point?

I just realized I never posted the image. It was posted to a public DIscord server, so I'm assuming it's okay to share, if the cases help.
Link.

I see these two boards, but all I know about the third is it's 8641D and the fourth is mysterious.
