Very exciting!

Does that Gigabyte board work well with AROS per chance?

I have tested icaros desktop live and it boots then stops on that board but it works fine on another Gigabyte board. I haven't had time to check other versions.
Of course you'll need a board you're sure it's fully supported.

Hi!

I must admit I was very very skeptical at the beginning, since I found the first iterations of your case just huge, heavy and useless. But now I see that your case grew up and improved greatly :) Well done!

I must say I really like it. I think you should try (unless you do that already ) to promote it also outside the amiga community. I can bet you would find many people all around the would who would love to have their "desktop" machine hidden in the keyboard.

Good luck!

@kyle

Are you going to put a Sam460 in there and run OS4 and MorphOS?

@scabit

Hi Scott,

Sorry for the late reply...

A 3.5" HDD should fit, I have tried a Samsung 80GB I found in a drawer

But I wouldn't advise to use it. They are too heavy, bulky and use too much power and release too much heat. You'll also have to find a way to attach it to the base.

I would definitely go for a 60-240GB SSD = no noise, no heat, less power or if you have to get a 2.5" HDD, the one in the video is a 7200 rpm...quick.
