for this to work with a CM4 Pi you also need an adapter.

True, but they're on their way and unless you already have a full sized RPi in your sock drawer or you are very impatient (there's a electronic supply shortage on don't you know) the CM4 plus adapter seems the way to go! I think the CM4 is about half the price of the RPi 4 and there seems slightly more availability of the CM4s.

Don't know, just having 850000 Drystones, SD HDD and 348MB Fast RAM is good enough for me.
Raspberry Pi 3A+ does quite well considering.
Yes connectors are awkward and CM4 board, does offer NVME slot, however if I really wanted HDMI, Audio, etc etc. I would make it work.

Will the 3a or 3b fit nicely inside the case without an adapter that the cm4 needs ?

I would like to order one to the U.S. but sorry, Amigakit's track record hasn't been that good to me. Communication or otherwise.

@David Wright

Everyone deserves a second chance in my view. AmigKit have hired another member of staff in the last year to help with communication, logistics and P&P. Even in the busy old days they came through for me in the end every time just with some delayed communication here and there. They are the real deal it's just we all rub each other up the wrong way/fail to live up to each others expectations sometimes when the market is growing (hence more enquiries/orders) but so to are the number of small cottage industry companies vying for our business. This creates tension e.g. Vampire vs PiStorm and RetroPassion vs AmigaKit. That's life but we shouldn't really question their integrity in striving for good customer service when the rubber hits the road. Choose your retailer (AmigaKit currently seems very reasonable with good quality of assembly) for the PiStorm32 and enjoy!

There is no tension between our company and AK, spoke to Chris on the phone a while ago and we have ordered odds and ends from them, yes we are a competitor but that's healthy and fun we also order from other competitors and they order from us, It's all good!
