Just a new picture of the ACA 630/25 accelerator for the Amiga 600. The black plate on top of the card is the cooler for the CPU. I think it looks like a very professional product, I am currently on the lookout for an Amiga 600 and I am going to order the ACA 630/25 when it is in stock.

Already ordered an Amiga 600 kickstart switch and an A600 hardcover to keep Amiga 600 keyboard dust free.

Vesalia is an oldschool Amiga dealer, they are still going strong on www.vesalia.de selling Amiga stuff like it is still spring of 1993.

ACA-1230/28 incl. 64 MB RAM and RTC

The Individual Computers turbo card for the Amiga 1200 have showed up in the product listing at Vesalia with a price of about 100 euro, considering it is a 030 card with 64MB memory it is a wicked deal. Especially considering second hand Phase 5 Blizzard1230IV goes for 150-200+ euro here in Sweden, ocasionally a Blizzard1230IV have been sold for more than a Blizzard 060 or Apollo 060 card which is absurd.

I picked up a Commodore 1084S monitor today that I intend to use with some consoles. Non HD signals look so much better on non HD CRT screens and the compact size of the 1084 is almost like having a portable arcade if combined with for example the Sega Saturn.

Anyway, for the price of the 1084 monitor I got an Atari STf 1040 thrown in the deal. I have actually been wanting to add an Atari ST to the collection for some time because there are quite a lot of really good ST tunes floating around the net.

I have covered some MacroSystem products here before, IIRC it was the Toccata which I presented. This time it is the VLab card that gets its spotlight today. No need to mention but MacroSystem was a company of higha qualiti which is still around in some way or another. Probably most famous for their high end cards and the Draco Amiga clone they where into video editing and such things that ordinary double floppy dudes with an A500 did not care about.

Things are moving forward for Jens of Individual Computing and the new A1200 and A600 accelerator cards. The ACA630 as I think it is called in prototype form is now physically fully working in prototype form.

The ACA630 Amiga 600 card can fit together with the A603 memory card and ECS Indivision scandoubler without problems inside the tiny A600 case. You will not however be able to fit the internal floppy drive if you want to run the internal scandoubler.
