Once the A500 hit that $595 USD price point in the states it became popular. I didn't know a single person back in the day that wanted an A500 over and A2000. IMO the A3000 was probably the sexiest Amiga.

Make the thing an ATX or mATX board with a PS2 keyboard adapter and call it a day. No mucking around with crowd sourced plastic cases and cannibalizing 30 year old keyboard.
I am one of those that think a basic Amiga 500 looks beautiful. No other Amiga looks especially good in my opinion, appart from the Amiga 1200 I kinda like. Cheap or not, Amiga 500 has always and is still looking sexy. I know a few other people that feel the same. It could be nostalgia reasons of course.
