I owned an A1200 back in the day, and loved it. In fact, for about 10 years it was my main computer. It was far more than a games machine to me.
However, despite that, I actually prefer the other two case designs.
I like the A600's case for its compact dimensions. But I think the A500 is the nicest looking of the three computers, and for me it represents the Amiga's heyday. So I've chosen the A500's case.
I just hope that RGL doesn't cheap out on the keyboard this time. That's the one thing that can't easily be fixed. If the keyboard uses mechanical switches and doubleshot keycaps, then I'll forgive any other flaws the product might have.
A1200 but must be in full size and emulate other Amigas. Make consoles mini have sense but make computers mini dont have! We wait in Poland for full sized A1200 or A500! U can make Console mini CD32 but remember Computers always must be in full size!!!!!!!!!!
I really like the small form factor of the A600. The actual Amiga that is emulated can be any model. Oh, and I want a battery compartment. I hate all those wires and PSU's. I run my The C64 from a USB powerbank, which is weird because 90% of The C64 is empty.
The A500 is the obvious choice IMO. It is the most iconic, well known and revolutionary model. I think a lot of people wouldn't recognize the other models. And the A600 didn't sell well at all, the only advantage of it is how compact it is.
Of course it should be able to run AGA games as well.
As long as it is a high end AGA Amiga in performance the case being a 500/1200 etc isn't that critical to me. I would also debut the Maxi first and worry about a mini later if at all. The mini just served to raise the question of when a full size one will arrive.
I would also love to see some focus on BBS and internet access, maybe some expansion modules to deck it out with working ports (as a USB dongle perhaps?). These maxi units are something that has been anticipated and hoped for over decades now, why cheap out now that the moment has arrived? I will happily pay more for quality and functionality.
I owned a C64 and then a 500 but I'd LOVE to see a replica of the Amiga 1000. Reason being then you could stick your tv or monitor on top of it and tuck the keyboard under the case when not in use. I know it's wishful thinking but a 128D would also be killer for this reason. It'd be nice to at least see somebody making empty cases for both so we could throw the Maxi or future Amiga board into it. The plus side of that is then you'd now have an empty maxi or amiga case you removed it from to then stick a Pi into. A Mega C65 case or C16 black case would also be cool. Possibilities are endless.
