On Sunday, October 23, I bought A.L.I.C.E. at the Amiwest Show 2017.  I paid $575 (discounted $25) plus sales tax.  I had been eagerly awaiting a portable Amiga solution since A.L.I.C.E. was announced at a previous show.  Here is what I found when I unboxed the laptop for the first time.  This A.L.I.C.E. used a 15.3 inch screen, an I3 processor, and a 250 gig SSD drive.  For more information on the various A.L.I.C.E. models, go to

  2. You cannot buy A.L.I.C.E as far as I'm aware, however, you can get nearly the same experience with the combination of these two packages from here:
    https://www.amikit.amiga.sk/
    https://www.amigaforever.com/

    The first gets you all the ALICE sweetness all bundled up into a simple install and the second gets you the rights to the Amiga Kickstarts and OS which is required to get it all running.
