The closest you'll get to a modern day Amiga experience

short of buying a second hand Amiga.

All this machine needs is to have WinUAE preloaded...

Apparently they 'think outside the box' by copying the design used 25 years ago for the Vic20 (or probably earlier).

The thread was "Amiga x86" and it was brought to our attention earlier by Zetr0.
But i guess if one could fit a Natami inside that box and replace the keyboard with an amiga keyboard like Cerberus suggested i would buy it today!!!

It does however seem to fit a niche market for small footprint PC's where they just have to run an x86 box.

This would be an interesting basic *nix box with your favorite distro, but because notebooks have gotten so cheap, you can get a better all-in-one unit that has a flat panel monitor already attached

You can get nicer, SMALLER units like the whole microATX ones.
