I think THAT IS AWESOME NEWS People with A600 should truly buy this. Amiga 600 is an excellent portable console machine..and expanding your console from 1 MB to 2 MB is great.

@individual Computers

You are awesome.

I would love to have a new Amiga mobo that would allow you to create such hardware extensions. That would be great.

I would say go buy yourself an A600 and buy that expansion board, not only to support their hard earned effort but because it is A GREAT product...you can go to work..take your tiny A600..hook it at the launge room TV..crack your joystick and have fun during your launch hour..and 2 MB of RAM chip is the cure for A600 to allow you to play all the classic games that require more than 1 MB. For PC users they would laugh and mock at this, but us Amiga users know how how much you can use of that 2 MB chip ram.

The included A1200 clockport is a very good idea

I don't have an A600 but it's great to see that new hardware is produced

Hehe, it wouldn't be a Jens Schoenfeld design if it didn't have a clockport

Hey, here's an idea for some enterprising person (I don't own an A600...): make a 90 degree adaptor and a device driver, and you can plug in an RR-Net card and have ethernet on your A600!

Couldn't agree more, It looks really great.

Kudos should also go to AmigaKit, I'm sure placing an order large enough to make production viable is a significant commitment on their part. It's interesting that they have presumably seen demand from a number of A600 users.

Congrats to all involved.

Robert

Amazing!

It's great to see new hardware again. Wow! new technology makes it tiny.

I am truly surprised that there has been such demand from A600 owners to mean such a product gets produced - which is a great thing.

Looks good, clockport is an interesting addition, think I might have to get one for my A600. Can't quite work out what the big black block on the back is though?

When Troika will show us any real evidence of progress, IBuM buys Amiga Inc. and hell freezes over.
