They do sell, he builds a couple here and there and sells them as a package.


Do they do systems with PCI expansion?
The price is actually reasonable (especially if you consider what Amiga equipment retailed for originally).

Again reiterating what others have said...Saw the price and the ONE image they posted of the case #nothanks.  At that price point many hi-res images should be posted.

Elbox have never, ever charged reasonable prices for their towers, ever.

An infinitely better solution would be Vampire A1200 + USB solution for external storage (optical drives, network connection, etc.), all in the A1200's original case.

Towers are for machines that already have slots and the associated expandability, IMO.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

It's almost like they don't want to sell the thing, posting such a ****** photo. :(

Nice with new hardware :) But why is the PSU taking up so much window space?

For that price I'd expect a proper solid case not a 'window' case.  It would be nice to at least have the option of side panels. :(

Who knows what it includes, given the lack of pictures?

Edit: oh look, they added another picture. A close-up of the bottom corner of the case. #Facepalm

lol this reminds me of the before digital camera era where you actually had to develop a picture and print out a physical copy then run home and scan it..seems Elbox has a dark room a few towns away from them at this rate so hopefully in another month we'll see pictures of all sides of this case;)
