I have done an Amiga500 case convertion, because I had a spare 500-board floating around, needing a new home. Because I have wanted a cased Amiga500 since like 1997/98 or something like that. And because I had a loose PC case in the closet.
To this date, I need to add some way of connecting a keyboard. In order to make it a fully functioning Amiga500, just in a different case. I have upgraded it to 1mb ChipRam onboard, yet I need to get the following upgrades in the future.
- Internal IDE interface.
- 8mb FastRam.
- DF0/DF1 boot selector.
- Kickstart switcher.
That way, I can get my own custom made “Big-Box” Amiga500. I kind of aim at getting something that are close to an Amiga2000 with this little project.
My question to you guys… How well did I do and does the case look Amiga’ish enough?
