Whilst the firmware is getting better it's still not as good as an old Amiga for compatibility.

For points :
  1. Form Factor
  2. SDCard loading of ADF
  3. Emulation of HDD via SDCard
  4. Use of modern PS2 keyboard & Mice
  5. Scandoubled VGA out.
  6. Accelerated 68000

Against points :
  1. Price
  2. Price
  3. Maximum of 4Mbyte RAM
  4. Incompatibilities, MiniMig chipset is an interpretation of Amiga chipset.
  5. Did I say price?

I do wonder why anyone would buy a MiniMig when you could get a second hand Laptop & (Win)UAE for about the same price?

Or two A600's + CF cards

Its the potential for it to be compact and more portable that interests me. I can take it anwhere there is a monitor/tv/keyboard on my bike.

A600 + A1200 PSU fits easily into a backpack for a fraction of the cost. It really depends if you need VGA out or not.

Upgrading an A600 to include 2Mbytes of RAM, CF card hard drive and Indivision ECS (VGA out) will probably cost you more than the price of a MiniMig.

If you don't need VGA out then with an A600 you're quids in.
