Why would you want to do that?
It obviously fits in a mini itx case.

Yes the vampire will work on it and I plan to have one again to show it off with it as well, just waiting for a loaner one to come in.

Here is the front of it all set up how I wanted it now too!

You can burn dual kikstarts sure, but you have to also make some type of switcher to change the image in the EPROM. The AmyITX has a built in function for it if you hold the power button down. I have 1.3 and 3.1 in this one.

Color me quite jelly.  I have my Vampire sitting here waiting to be installed.  This would make a wonderful system.  That looks like a Shuttle XPC, or similar, anyway.  Nice box. I prefer a more squat machine, myself, though the ones I like have no place for a floppy.

Clever move... :D
I am impatiently waiting for AmyITX to become available....


Any news on that matter?

What kind of issue were you having with it a while back that you had to send it back to Sweden for a repair?

Very nice indeed!


A mini-ITX version would be even nicer. :)

I really like the the boingball artwork and case badge but the look of the drive bay area lets it down.  A vinyl mask across the whole top section would smooth things out and make it more consistent.

Hope you're having fun with the new system.

Really? That's so cool. I assumed from the name it was ITX.

Hopefully they'll be available again soon.

Its a 68030 accelerator I assembled. Its not bad, but limited. Better than a plan 68000 though for sure.
