Granted the Minimig is small compared to a real Amiga 500 but like already mentioned you've then got to add the keyboard so it doesn't actually save that much space. I don't think you could use the space hog excuse when comparing a Minimig to a PC as we all know pc's can come in various sizes like the one linked to above, a laptop or even a netbook.

On that same reason you wouldn't have a Minimig under your TV either then? I mean one extra unit extra unit.

I know people just don't want a PC but you'll need one for your Minimig, no? Well I suppose you could use your Amiga but then what would be the point of having a Minimig?

Please don't get me wrong I appreciate people will want a Minimig for whatever reason it's just that I cannot see anyone coming up with a good enough reason for me to spend out quite a bit of money.
