The X500 Pro
« on: January 21, 2018, 12:03:59 AM »
The final X500 case, the X500 Pro for mini-itx boards has launched:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/505470364/the-x500-pro-computer-case

It is actually two Kickstarters in one as you can also pledge just for Amiga inspired key caps
for mechanical keyboards with Cherry MX switches.

Please forward the above link to anyone you believe might be interested or
websites and social media where you think we could gather some support.

I'll add another one later (a system assembly) and also some photos.

Thanks!

Updated the add-ons:

Now you can add the extra transparent/tinted windows/key caps cost to your pledge.

i like it but ...
I have the intention to buy the amiga 1222 Tabor but when i understand it right, it is 420 euro for the X500pro case and integrate  keyboard.
That is a lot of money. is this correct?

So I went to the kickstarter link above and it looks like this was canceled on January 27th. Does anyone have any insight about why it was canceled?

Pure speculation here.  It may be the case that someone has offered to bankroll production of these cases out of their own pocket and Loriano is currently unable to speak about the deal.  

Any other theories as to why he would cancel it so soon with no explanation are welcome.
