The price is ok, I'll probably buy one.
When will Amigakit and Vesalia have them on stock?

ACube could do with a better site for Minimig explaining what it does. A more Amiga focused site explaining it to the layman exactly what the product offers (ie Amiga emulation in hardware for games) would potentially get them lots of sales.

Could do with offering a complete cased solution too.

@Derfs

Why do you need network support?

Why on earth do you need network support in an A500?

I need PAL/NTSC switchability like all my real Amigas have (A500/A2000/A3000/A1200) before I get one. Sadly, this minimig v1.1 design is hardwired to be permanently PAL forever.

So basically 120 plus shipping.

Not too bad I guess - still a bit expensive, but probably unavoidable until/if Clone-A is finished & mass-produced.


edit: If I was mean (grin) I would say that 100 gets you a GP2X that can emulate an Amiga (not quite as well), Megadrive (perfectly), SNES (almost perfectly), etc, along with TV-out capability...

These could sell by the bucket load if marketed correctly!

Imagine: a MiniMig in its perspex top and bottom case with the Amiga logo (the italic lettering) and Tick (no crappy boing balls) etched on the top, with the ability to allow all those classic Amiga games to be played on a TV or monitor... would be as good as getting a Nintendo Wii!

That would be next years "must get" Christmas present I tell ya Amiga Inc could make a fortune!

Definitely. To me, the boing ball will always be associated with idiotic lawsuits by companies that really should be working together. The tick will always bring back memories of hours of fun with my computer.

I ask anyone that is serious about briging back the amiga in any form to use either the tick or something else - keep the boing ball away, please.

Does this include a case? I see screw things in the picture on the site.

EDIT: Everyone change the links from .com to .biz to make it work
i.e: http://www.acube-systems.biz/eng/news.php?id=21

This is great news!

@Derfs

I don't think it is too much hardship to take out the MMC, pop it into your PC, copy the adfs you want, then pop it back in the Minimig.

Get a big enough MMC and you shouldn't need to swap your adfs about too much anyway.

Yes, that would be great!
But in order to sell to the mass market the Amiga OS needs to be preinstalled, case and powersupply needs to be added, some games included,
so the price will get a bit higher...

I agree. I wonder about the size of the MMC...maybe the limit is 4GB, that will give you a lot of games!

I would have loved to have seen a parallel port on this, even if it was in the form of an onboard break-out connector. It would have been pretty cool for some of my old embedded projects.

Kind regards,

Francis.
