Thanks for posting. I'm really excited about this product and have been following progress for a while.

Is it really only an extra £20 for a 3A+ and an SD card? That's a good price.

@AmigaMia74

Maybe it really will what? Either RetroPassion will stock it or they won't! I'm sure the UK stockists would prefer we splurge our money now on the RPi3A+ bundle rather than hold out for a CM4 powered bundle (even with the potential for extra profit margins on the associated breakout board, cable, fan/heasink etc :o)! Also, RPi3A+ units are relatively easy to source compared to CM4 Modules/RPi4s which may limit the market at present.

I would say those two reasons are why UK stockists are reluctant to throw their support behind this at the moment! It's their loss if I go elsewhere to be honest. Communication means a lot in a small marketplace and during a borderline recession every sale should be valued.

@Thread

I think communication with UK vendors has run its course here. See the thread below or the PiStorm Discord Channel for interesting discussion about Pistorm32 future products:

When there is silence then there is stuff happening in the background ;-) There is a lot of stuff happening in the Amiga community atm of which we are working on all 6 cylinders :-) simply, when it's ready we will shout from the hills.
