Introduction price includes mount frame and Amiga Forever v8 DVD pack and 32gb boot MicroSD card set up and ready to go with a nice list of games and demos from the Amiga Forever Pack.
For a Stand alone Amiga this is a great lowish cost option for games, demos, music and some applications. Relies on having Pc with emulator to transfer files back and forth although once setup the additional serial network (not tested) should help here.
It uses a customised version of the MiniMig core that has been maintained over the years and is stable. With next generation UnAmiga due to larger FPGA gate size it can have RTG which is a game changer.
Pack comes with Amiga Forever DVD pack worth £45.

I really like the feeling this system gives you when using and the fact it has AGA but can switch chip sets for compatibility is an absolute bonus. Best of all is the demos runs so well and smooth as the original Amigas. Can run some other non Amiga cores. A great second system next to an emulated setup for when you just need the accuracy of FPGA.
With AGA, 2mb chip and 20mb fast ram this performs just like an A1200 with say a 50mhz CPU or as Sysinfo would say 2.1 times A3000 speed which is enough for a lot of applications including most games and demos unless high performance is required.
Low cost entry
Accurate Amiga emulation
AGA, OCS and ECS
New versions larger FPGA 55k gates and RTG
Scroll lock button activates flicker fixer
2mb Chip and 20mb Fast ram
Can run some other cores
Runs relatively cool so no fan or heat sink required due to lack of Arm core
Network is serial speed only but hard to setup
Difficult to get data onto system without an emulated system as well for file transfer.
