Call for a PowerPC based notebook

My iBook is definetevly dead. Altough I’m owning (as a CRUX-PPC developer) an YDL PowerStation and a Sam440ep, I feel more difficult developing for the PowerPC architecture without a notebook based on that, because I can’t carry with me that machine (PowerStation and Sam440ep) as a notebook, and I have to go about everyday to the university.

So if you are a CRUX-PPC user, or just a PowerPC entusiast and you have a PowerPC based notebook (no matter how old it is) that you don’t use (often) please consider donating or borrowing it to the CRUX-PPC Project, you (or your company) will be mentionated in the CRUX-PPC’s donors page.

Thank you!
