And also the first pic I've seen of an A1200 running OS4.

@ HWGA

Yeah I saw that too! And after a cursory glance at it, it looks to be a vanilla A1200 I thought you'd need a tower for the PPC etc...

Yes Ryu was running OS4 on his desktop Amiga1200. It seemed to work fairly well, but personally I didn't find the graphics display to be incredibly responsive when compared to my own BPPC based system which runs on a 68060. I'd be very interested to boot OS4 on my system to see if there was any significant improvement there, as I'm running a better graphics card and have a faster PPC. I'm not sure what state the BPPC/CSPPC versions of OS4 are in at the moment, so I'm not sure if it's capable of running a PCI Mediator based graphics card but it would be interesting to see if it can.

The AmigaOne version of OS4 seemed lightning fast, I saw it running on Rhino's 800Mhz G4 system and it really was very nice indeed. Infact, it was the first time I'd seen OS4 in action on an A1 and I think I'm impressed enough to commit to buying one. Sven from Stellar Dreams demonstrated the OS4 installation in action and I can assure anyone who's never actually seen OS4 yet that it's a VAST improvement over OS3.9 installation!

I think it's fair to say that the AmigaOne version of OS4 looks very promising indeed. I'm still very much interested to try the BPPC version of OS4 on my system though, and regardless of whether I buy an AmigaOne I'll still want a copy of the finished BPPC version for my A1200 :)

Not that I recall. AFAIR, you could install the PPC directly into the stock A1200 case. The only thing that comes to mind is that (if I remember correctly) it was a tight fit once everything was in there. I seem to recall a tower being a "suggestion" but not a requirement.

Cooling is a requirement for the 68040 version, but less so when running OS4 because it's not really being stressed is it.

The other requirement is a decent PSU because the standard PSU will burn out in no time at all with a PPC and BVision installed

Great to see a A1200 again especially running OS4.

I get the urge for a wedge shapped case again. Is there some REAL pictures of the Amiga Fantasy case available now? I keep seeing news items pop up but no real pictures.

@Bodie_CI5,

I thought I posted the first picture,
