Oh for crying out loud... Jens, the question was not for you. Of course there are cheaper ways to make cases, but that was never the point of the current kickstarter. You know, many did not support the first kickstarter simply because the word "AMIGA" was not on the case, many people wanted a pretty exact replica of the A1200 case. So there will be a cheaper, different than original casing, but somehow more "in spirit" option later on, well good luck with that. I presume "Amiga spirit" in this case (badom-tish) means it will have its share of flaws and problems.
Go make an A1000 replica, with a proper Amiga keyboard, and I may be interested.
