The case is also compatible with the Raspberry Pi and several other boards.

As for the original amiga electronics: there will be a new Amiga motherboard next year:

I did Amiga--lived & breathed it--for eight years and owned at least one of every model made except the A1000--but seriously, this is a tad ridiculous. Amiga emulation (WinUAE 3.1) is excellent and the current x86 PC hardware is far better than it ever was for the Amiga. Best part of the Amiga was the OS (Workbench), imo--and that because it preemptively multitasked so well when absolutely nobody else did that at all. But Workbench is strictly lightweight compared to even Windows10x64 these days, so I wish people would let the Amiga RIP. The original plastic case is likely to outlive the old, original electronics, imo. I can see keeping the software around and I have a lot of it...it's classic, instructional & historical. But there's just no reason to keep that old hardware going.

It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)
