I'm still hung up on the thesis that the 500 is a cost-reduced 1000 system.

My impression was always that the 500 was low price 2000 system, with the biggest difference being the sidecar slot...

Looking for A500 desktop case

Hi all...

So I have an A500 that has basically stopped being useful in its current case. The keyboard is dying, the top is cracked (it's super brittle), the Gotek really should be front-mounted,...

I do. The runtime is much more complete, with a ton of stuff you have to roll yourself (or buy) in c++. Mostly, though, I like not having to deal with pointers and memory allocation. The runtime does...
