The Extreme Amiga 600 Upgrading Page has seen an extensive update last week. All sections have now been completed and further pictures added. This site documents a project to upgrade an Amiga 600 to the max. It also contains tons of information about the smallest Amiga.

Which makes it even more important to keep the legacy alive rather than letting it fall into the shadows. Don't forget about your roots, remember?

Old school computers rocks! (especially the C=64 and the A1000) :-)

This is really interesting. I know it's not quite so much of a challenge, but does anyone know where I could finf similar info re. the A1200? Or maybe I should just do it myself and upload the results...

Oh, and to the guy who posted "The year is 2003": If you can't understand the appeal in such a project as this, why are you even looking at an Amiga website?!

Hmm, the page is very informative and has good layout. If this hadn't been 2003 it would probably not have been such a good page (remember how the internet used to look? :-) )

And since when has what year we're in have any effect on what we think is cool, anyway. I still have my A500 in working condition. Same can't be said about the A1200, I'm afraid.
Actually, this page got me thinking. Quite a new experience for me, eh?
Maybe I should use my new knowledge of Xilinx programmable chips and come up with a accelerator design that utilizes the VirtexII-Pro chips. You know, the ones who has PPC cores on-chip :-)
My god, that's an excellent idea. Now about those 200 other projects I haven't finished :-(

Hi Christian,

Nice one mate :)


Keep it comming.

I've got myself an Acellerator (Viper) for my A600 and your site is going to come in very handy.

That's awesome. I wonder, though, if there's a PCMCIA USB controller made that would fit in the A600's slot (which would of course require drivers). With that you could have network, printer, scanner, modem, CDRW etc. all with one port; no need to be forced into an either-or situation!

Seems most USB adapters for PCMCIA is indeed for CardBus, unfortunately...

In reply to Comment 10 (Some Farker):
Does the A600 not have a Clock Port similar in form and function to the one on the A1200 ?
Or is it rendered unavailable by the Accelerator/Harddisk ?

Nice Page, suggested some potential remedies for my Ailing A1200. Only the one that is ailing though. ;-)
