Hardware News   Hardware News : SWAUG Tutorial: Towering the A1200
   posted by swaug on 9-Jun-2004 0:38:06 (1257 reads)
This is an account of how a member recently towered an Amiga 1200 into a PC tower case with window. The Amiga was constructed from unused Amiga hardware to put the spare kit lying around to good use.

"Leftover spare bits" my ass. Apart from that it's an ok tower but I have some pointers (as allways). First off sad to see the scraches on the front. The USB ports in the 5.25" place doesn't look too good, could perhaps be part of something more (fancontroll, cardreaders etc) but doesn't work too good on their own. The PCMCIA port look awfull... should angle it and just have a TP port on the back instead of the hole card sticking out. It lack a lot of ports on the back (Par, Ser, Joy, Sound and RF to mention a few) that could very well be needed at some point. And I belive that the HD could be a permanent thing and the HDRack used for an extra unit instead... perfect for swapping and backup.
