Enjoyed the video.
Would like to put an A500 in one of these.
Not likely if this is the going rate for one.

Now we can stop complaining as there is a super new Amiga with bells and whistels + the killer proggies.

Now I can Rest In Peace.

Thank You Very Many and God Bless You ;)

@admin

Can the news thread be deleted and replaced with the Live Kickstarter story I sent earlier, or just update please.

Sadly that Live stream went pear shaped and I had to set up another, so the news is not pointing to my Kickstarter

I'm really interested this. 159 is not too much.

But I have a feeling it has been started too early stage.

*There is no pictures / solutions how to power up machine? Who it would be connected to intenal PSU?

*Keyboard. There is a picture for for a casing for a amiga's keyboard, but nothing more. I would like to get infot and price for that too.

There is a FAQ answered what I get, but it little bit unsure.
