Pre-ordered.

Oh, and I used Amazon Smile so it makes a charity donation too.

Quite interesting to say the least. They call it the A500mini but it also offers AGA capabilities which makes it more like an A1200mini.

Yeah, I guess there is less name recognition if they were to call it the A1200 Mini.

It’s shaped like a miniature Amiga 500, hence the name, but great that it supports more than just the base A500. And I think it’s clever to have the gamepad and mouse.
