Thanks for visiting my blog. 🙂
Due to less space for computers at home, I have put my Amiga 1200 in a new case.
It is a transparent acrylic case with smoke-grey tinted “glass”.
I bought it from Plexilaser.de in Germany. If you want to check it out, you can follow the link below:
The price was about 100 EUR. For that you get the case, a bunch of screws, and cables for the floppy disk drive. It is worth mentioning the shipment was very fast with DHL.
My idea is to share the keyboard between my main computer and the Amiga, saving valuable desk space. Right now it has a separate keyboard though, which is connected with a Lyra 3 PS/2 keyboard adapter. I bought that one from Alinea Computer Shop.
To connect the computer to the monitor, I use an OSSC Scan Converter.
Here are the current specifications:
Escom Amiga 1200
Kickstart 3.x – Cloanto
Workbench 3.x – Cloanto
A1208 V3 8MB FastRAM Expansion from Amigastore.eu
Compact Flash HDD – 4 GB
Here are some pictures of the new home for my Amiga 1200. 🙂
Thanks for reading and see you in another post here on Old School Game Blog. 🙂
Thanks a lot for your post. I read it some time ago and then decided to also buy this case which I assembled yesterday, it has become a woderful case for a homeless A1200 motherboard I had in stock.
Kind regards from Spain,
Thanks for the comment! 🙂
Great to hear you purchased the same case I did and that you are happy with it. What kind of specifications does your Amiga 1200 setup have?
I’m a bit surprised that not more people buy these cases, since they are affordable, looks cool and works great.
Enjoy your A1200! 🙂
Hi, I bought this case for an Amiga 1200 motherboard I had in storage. Now it’s my main Amiga.
It has a rev 1D4 mobo, lyra 3 adapter and micromys (to use Ps/2 keyboard and mouse), modified pc floppy drive and Pistorm32 Lite accelerator.
The main drawback I find is the access to the inside of the setup. If you want to swap cf card, try another SD card (the accelerator needs a Raspberry Pi which comes with an SD card slot) or so, you must remove the top cover screws, which I find is a bit annoying.
I think it would be a good idea if the top cover had a hatch (with hinges or not) to access the main components inside without having to remove the top cover screws. I made them a suggestion in this sense to improve the design for future versions…
