Thats quite a sight for sore eyes! :great A thing of beauty!
If i were you, i would forget about fitting an x86 on that case.
I would keep it the closest possible to the original internals, maybe a nice 1230 or 1240 accel card with 64 mb ram.Upgraded Kickstart to 3.1 rev 40.68, with OS 3.5 or 3.9,a fine 40 gb 2.5 hardrive, and at most a slim dvd drive or cdrom fitted in the back.
Too nicely untamed...:spin

interesting me thinks...

Ooooh! Shiny!

And so obviously modelled on the A1200 design.

I wish they'd gone for a mini-joystick type mouse instead though, I suffer with the use of the mousepad on my ageing laptop.

@Boot_WB

its strange thing about input devices, I am an absolute demon when it comes to a touch pad (left or right handed), but when it comes down to a micro analogue joystick thingy, Its like I have boxing gloves on! the word beyond hopless is ... well an improvement LOL, so for that sake, I am humbly pleased they didn't put one in there. however a nice litte tracker ball, similar to the XP keyboard would of been nice.

also there is mousey ps2 ports and usb round the back :D but all this pales in comparison to the need of Amiga Compatible joystick ports...

My micro analogue joystick thingy took a bit of getting used to, but I find it a lot easier now - faster, and removes the accidental left click when typing (as the heel of your hand accidentally touches the touch pad).
I got a wireless keyboard with built in mouse. Trouble is, the USB dongle got snapped, so it's completely bloody useless now, as I can't get a replacement from the manufacturer. I've tried soldering in a replacement USB plug, but I can't get the bloody thing to work anymore. The pcb uses speck-of-dust sized SMD components, and I suspect I have heat-damaged something in attempting the repair.
I'm still using my 3-button trackball mouse on my miggy though!

Indeedy! :-D
Although I notice that the PS2 port is on the left - seems an odd choice, with only ~10% of the population being left-handers. Small beer in the scheme of things though.

Unsure whether to use this with the original internals, or do the whole mod for a x86 board with keyrah


So Cerberus, what did you do with that pretty painted case? :)
