    Amilator is the ultimate emulator based on the latest Kernel 4.9, Amilator is a new Amithlon style Linux + FS-UAE project where you can start any Amiga operating system from 1.x up to 4.x on any modern computer using a USB stick. Amithlon was successful to get AmigaOS 3.9 running on cheap and modern x86 hardware.

    That could actually be a really good idea. Personally I don't use any form of UAE anymore as it's actually easier to just power up my real Amiga and open a WHDload game via iGame.

    I'd like to hook up my Amiga 500 to my Dell U2711 - from what I have read on the internet it should display the picture at 15khz.

    Does anyone have experience with this? I am thinking of just getting a RGB to VGA adapter from AmigaKit and seeing if it works :thumbup: or does anyone know of a better solution?

    That'll do it, unless you want to make your own cable. You need a buffer chip on the hsync and vsync lines otherwise the monitor will pull too much current and harm the Amiga, the AmigaKit adapter should have this current buffering.

    I really like that idea, and the price is pretty fair.
    I dont like that it doesn't have RCA jacks for the RGB input. Its just got a hole at the back for a pig-tailed cable, too messy for me.

    I might have a go at making something myself. But can I justify buying beige filament...

    68K Amigas might soon be available ITX form :thumbup:

    Not emulated (chipset required), and I think they are hinting that multiple roms can be stored on board - meet Amy:

    Then theres the Vampire V4 - which has an 080 / s-AGA complete system in the pipeline @23mm longer than pico-ITX! Does have multiple roms on board.
