A600GS photos

 Here are some pics grabbed from the AmigaKit Facebook page...

Looks like it was filmed at the AmigaKit offices!

I particularly like this shot.

Assembling the A1222+ from A-EON, part 2

The AmigaOne A1222+ had more work done to it...

Just to make it better,

Assembling the A1222+ from A-EON

Got the Demos, Games, Music drawers from Apollo OS

Where to get more stuff?  From an Apollo OS CF card!

Had to tweak the Archanoid for a better frame rate

Gotta try out a classic game!

After formatting, partitioning, and installing from recovery USB stick

Without prepping the hard drive, this is what we got.

Radeon RX550 now installed.

A look at the cables going through the case

Lots of cables to wind through the case

Modded backplate now attached; the board now lays flat!

SSD drive in the case attached (above the p.s. in this pic)

Another view of the test fit

Another test fit of the A1222+ board

Made the round holes bigger, the 2 right rectangular ones lower

Another view of the power supply installed

With the 3D-printed backplate, the A1222+ board didn't lay flat.

Test-fitting the 3D-printed backplate that was provided

Another view of the power supply in the case

The power supply slips into the corner of the case

The power supply I got from Central Computers in Santa Clara

The case's features

A highly-rated case according to the Internet


 

Once again Blogger has put my photos in reverse order, even though I renamed them.  Oh, well, enjoy the pics of the assembly of the A1222+.  My thanks to Duncan M. of The Other Group of Amigoids and his expertise in putting the machine together; I would have done a hack job on it if I were to do it!

Truly,

Unboxing the A1222+ from A-EON

As usual, Blogger has jumbled my photos out of order, and it's too much trouble to move them into correct position.  :)  Anyway, on Saturday, April 27, 2024, I received my A1222+ I ordered back on Nov. 2, 2023.  I ordered everything except the case and power supply, thinking I could source those parts easily in the USA.  (Well, I could have sourced other parts, but I wanted everything together mostly.)  Below are my photos of the unboxing.  As soon as the machine is assembled, I will post those pics in a separate topic.

Truly,
