A1200.net has recently announced that it will launch a kickstarter campaign for new Amiga 500 cases. After a very successful release of Amiga 1200 cases a1200.net want to reach out to Amiga 500 users and offer them a brand new case for this gem in home computing history. Details are still very limited but more news will be announced in the near future. The Amiga 500, also known as the A500, is the first low-end Commodore Amiga 16/32-bit multimedia home/personal computer. It was announced at the winter Consumer Electronics Show in January 1987. The original Amiga 500 proved to be Commodore’s best-selling Amiga model. Although popular with hobbyists, arguably its most widespread use was as a gaming machine, where its advanced graphics and sound were of significant benefit. The Amiga 500 series was discontinued in June 1992.
