    Default An Amiga 500 in a matchbox? The Armiga pulls it off! ( Hardware Review )



    At its core, the Armiga is about nostalgia. It sets out to recreate the warm fuzzies of playing that most awesome game of yesteryear while taking full advantage of today's sweet hardware. The Armiga intends to give you a fully decked-out classic Amiga 500 in a tiny box. And even though the product is still in the prototype stage, it works quite well!

    One thing that lets it down is if you look very closely at the case it has lines from the 3D printer,why didn't they sand it down so you couldn't see them as much,it looks horrible is some of the pictures.I like the ArmigaOS(GUI) and its Virtual Mouse and keyboard.
