    Default A600 / Slim-Desktop PC project.

    Hi

    I have a pair of old slim-desktop pc towers and I'm planning to use one to convert my recently purchased A600 stuff in one system more affordable with PS2 style keyboard and space to fit internal DF0:, IndyECS, ACA630, etc....

    I have all, but I need a keyboard adapter. Anyone knows about one adapter like this for A600's?

    Thanks

    Hi Pablo!

    Elbox made PC-Key 600 but these are very rare, you could try their site but I've only ever seen one and it was one that I sold here about a year ago!

    All the best,

    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the info my friend.

    Bad news... OK, I will try with Elbox, but the last times I have lot of problems with this "Company"...... and not solved for now.... I bought a Mirage Pro 4000 on November 30th 2010 and not yet dispatched/received.

    One noob question ... I know the difference between keyboards of A600/A1200 but.... one A1200 adapter can be work? or maybe damage the A600 mobo if I try to install?

    Thanks again & Best wishes

    Sorry you didn't get your Mirage Pro yet, that really sucks - I guess it takes some time though as I think the build to order. Hopefully you get it soon. I really want to order one of these one day. Its like my dream lol!

    About the keyboard, the connector is totally different as its smaller on A600 (I guess it does not need all the stuff for the keypad)

    All the best with your project

    Steve.

    The one I had I couldn't get to work so sold as 'faulty' maybe this is the same one?

    No I do not recognise the swapper, I recognise his avatar from miles.. Yes mine works, but is useless, since I am not going to do a tower and the fan is in the way to fit it when top is of.

    Since I swapped for a new a1200 version I can offer this at 50% vesalia price is 38eu /2 + shipping

    Hmm. Now that's a really neat idea for a project. Mod an A600 into one of those small-footprint desktop PC cases. It'd make a really sweet almost-'big-box' Amiga.

    Thinking about accelerating your A1200? Check out my buyer's guide.

    @jvdbossc

    Hi m8.

    You're offering me one working A600 Keyboard to PS2 adapter? That's great.

    I declare official interest to buy

    Is 19Euro + Shipping, right?

    How much costs shipping to Madrid (Spain)?

    @AndyLandy

    Thanks for your kind words my friend. When I start the project I will update with pics & comments.
