|Craving for a brand new Amiga 1200 case? Longing for Individual Computers' upcoming Amiga Reloaded, and want it to have a proper home? Need a new case for your Raspberry Pi or your ITX form factor motherboard? In either "case", AMIGA CASE: The Ultimate Retro Style Computer Case has you covered. |
Launched on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo by Jarno Smit a few days ago, the project aims to not only recreate Commodore's Amiga 1200 case, but also improve on its original design.
Available in two different styles, campaign backers can choose to get a case with holes for an Amiga 1200 keyboard (currently €59) or a case without any keyboard (currently €64) holes at all, meant to be used with an external keyboard. In addition to pledging for the case itself, backers can choose to pay an extra €1 for a redemption code for the Amiga Reloaded. The code guarantees the user to be able to pre-order the Amiga 1200 Reloaded, which is expected to sell out immediately after the first batch will be made available by Indvidial Computers later this year.
Made with permission granted by Amiga Inc, the case sports the original, official ("classic") Amiga logo, two separate 3.5" bays on either side and comes with removable backplates, enhanced ventilation and more space than the original Amiga 1200 case perfect for professional users.
The full specification is as follows:
|* Original Amiga logo on the case|
* Designed for classic Amiga 1200 hardware
* Designed for the Thin Mini-ITX form factor, Raspberry PI 1B+/2/3 and Keyrah V2 keyboard adapter
