Amiga The A500 Mini: The old girlfriend returns reduced back
Already for a long time it was clear that there will be a remake of the Amiga 500, or should you better say “the” Amiga 500? Because Amiga means “Girlfriend” or “Comrade” in Spanish, and for many a computer fan of the first generation was the cult home computer published at the end of the 80s by Commodore maybe even almost like a girlfriend. Since the weekend has now been a licensed replica in the trade and costs, for example, at Amazon 129.99 euros, with the first almost 30 user opinions show a total positive image.
The remake of the Amiga 500 now available is called the A500 Mini, which already suggests that it is a reduced version of the home computer. The A500 Mini is still a USB controller and a mouse in typical oldschool design, the latter in turn has a normal size. In our news of 20 January was still talk of a release for March, whereby this was already a back-shifted appointment.
In addition to the A500 mini itself, the controller, the mouse, a USB cable (for the power supply – it is not a power supply) and an HDMI cable is probably most important: there are 25 classic Amiga games preinstalled. We have embedded a selection of these games as a gallery to go through here.
