Maybe if the project succeeds, and a reasonable number of boards are sold, it could be a good idea to project a similar board for the CD32 or the A500.

Maybe I should sell my Blizzard 030 now, in preparation! I don't use the FPU and I can live without AmiBlitz as all it tends to do is crash a lot.

Oh yes please - I find it strange that there are so few expansions for CD32 considering the rather appealing form factor, lots of space inside, and the relatively high number they sold - and for a CD32 board today, onboard SD card slot and ethernet plug are must haves!

I would instantly buy a CD32 030 Accelerator with onboard IDE or SATA connection and some form of memory expansion (either soldered on or a socket). It would be the ultimate classic Amiga game playing system

A CD32 expansion would be brilliant also. How different would it be from the A1200 version?

What to say. You really push the 030 to give us the most MIPS it can deliver. And all those years I thought Phase5 was the masters of speed. How wrong of me...

Too bad, I was hoping to see them running and possibly buy one. Please bring some pictures and spec sheets for us to look at.

I see the French have been rioting again because of this and the Indivision 1200...

I'm extremely tempted to buy one of these babies - the "99 Euro" one methinks I can justify to myself and the wife. After having a quick look at A1200 accelerators on E-bay last night these brand new Individual Computers ones look to be the far better option.

So, will we only be able to buy them through certain (online) outlets or direct from this wonderful company?

Did I miss the expected price for the A600 model? The €99 for 28mhz 1200 one sounds great and if same for A600 I'd expect the 2nd hand market for A600s on ebay to shoot up!

I wished there would be something available for the CD32 ... But saying that, I assume there are hardly any users left ;(

Maybe we should do a count? I have two, one plane and one with SX32 Pro

Well, maybe, but in the end it is up to Jens if it is profitable to produce something similar to the SK32, as he is on the end of the day a business man and not a charity. But maybe a count can help to makes Jens mind up? Who knows? But maybe it is time for me to buy as well a Amiga 1200?

Another happy CD32 owner here

I'd also like to see something made for the CD32.... assuming it's practical, economical, etc ....

I'd spend money on a CD32 accelerator before I spend it on one for the A600 or A1200. I have all these Amigas but the one I'd love to boost the speed of the most is definitely the CD32!

If Jens ever makes a CD32 accelerator I'd definitely want one. I'm think something with an 030, internal IDE, and clockport would be very adequate.
