From the same lot that gave us the C64 mini they have now produced a Amiga 500 mini.

Should come with 24 games but more can be added by the USB and it also supports the AGA chip set.

Weather it worth it I don't know as it will depend on weather you want to be able to use it with a TV and you may want to hold off and see if they produce a bigger version later on.

🤔 Interesting I suppose but what advantage over a real Amiga would it have? This is especially so when you can fit SD and MMC card readers into the floppy port. I did this conversion on my Atari 520 STe and it worked really well. I picked the Atari because it didnt have an easy hard drive option but it would have worked just as well in the Amiga with a firmware update.

The only advantage I can think of is being able to use it with a modern tv as you could just as easily download an emulator and the games and have pretty much the same experience. 

Looks like it will cost about £120, so it around about the same price you might expect to pay for a good conditioned A500 and you do get the A1200 and CD32 emulation as well.

Probably more aimed at these who don't want the old hardware but still want the nostalgia.
