there are at least two projects making new Amiga cases that do support Vampire standalone installs. One is an A500 case replica and the other is the checkmate cases. So options are available even now. I suspect more will surface when the actual board is released. They are of course coming from third parties.

Yes, both of those cases may take a Vampire, but I was replying to sokolovic who wanted "a brand new wedge Amiga kb sold with the Vampire". The checkmate case isn't a wedge, I think an A500 case would be overkill for something as small as the Vampire standalone, but more importantly neither of them address the issue of keyboards.

No it's not an issue. They sourced a supplier quite some time ago.

Yep, I agree, my only point was that if there is enough demand, these things will probably happen sometime in the future after the V4 stand-alone is out and being used. But, admittedly, I do not have ESP. just wishful thinking.

The V4 standalone is (will be) tiny enough to fit in _any_ Amiga case. If you want one in an A1200 case, you just need a tiny plate or bracket that fit a few of the original screw holes, and with new holes for the V4 - people have done this with lots of other boards already. To be honest, I have little motivation to support the A500 case project, as I don't have any A500 at the moment, and I find it rather too big to be practical. But I do certainly appreciate the effort, so I may support just for the sake of having the molds made. What I really need and want, are new Amiga keyboards - using PC keyboards in general, and half baked solutions for PC keyboards with Amiga like Keyrah, very frustrating.

This is a nice idea but you have to get rid of the old carcasses, AMiGA has always been innovative, I think the V4 should be in a modern case in this way it could also attract new users of other platforms.

Beautiful, now that you reason !
Amiga when he was born was presented in a sheet and then placed inside a house that did not belong to him given its emancipation.

Why I have a feeling this will be in range of $500+, which is a no go for me, since I don't like to spend too much on hoby, while I can still run all games/programs on pc/rpi...

Sure, would be nice to fit one in my old A1200, or perhaps standalone one, but definitely not at that price.

Is there really any reason why the standalone would cost a lot more than the cards? It should have the added bonus of not having to pay for an edge connector

The v2 cards are cheaper than v4 cards. Stand alone will use v4 as a minimum.

V4 will be more expensive than V2 because of bigger fpga, 512MB ram instead of 128, built-in ethernet, USB, db9 etc.

V4 standalone vs V4 for A500 shouldn’t have a price difference really.
