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.
