    Keyboard PC design recalls Amiga era

    Fashion often repeats itself, with dated products reborn into popular products. Just think of VolksWagen’s Beetle or BMW's Mini. And now we can add the Commodore Amiga to the list, sort of, thanks to a new all-in-one PC with a look rather reminiscent of the home computer.

    Well what if you woke up one morning and thought to yourself; "what I really need is a laptop without a screen, that would be cool!".

    This then would be your problem solved?

    Re: Keyboard PC design recalls Amiga era

    Its pretty good must admit, been looking at the customisable options with it and the only thing really missing is being able to put a decent graphics board in it. If they can somehow work out how to do that I reckon it would sell pretty well across the board instead of just primarily for business, schools etc

    Something like that is a lot smaller than having a larger bulky case, ideal for people on the move that want more power than a laptop. Could be quite good for lan parties if they done something with the graphics.

    I like it, think its a great idea. Something like this may help pull wireless transmission to the monitor to the the playing field which would be ace!

    Not seen these for a while, we used to sell the older SoA ones a good few years back, they didnt really take off then and cant see them taking off now either, exactly the same as the old ones but just higher spec...

    Re: Keyboard PC design recalls Amiga era

    If only, just like the Amiga 500, the computer played games 4 times better with 1/4 of the memory and 1/2 the CPU power at 1/4 of the cost.
