Convert a Raspberry Pi 400 into a retro computer that behaves like the popular Amiga 500.
The Commodore Amiga was more than a gaming platform; its graphical interface, Workbench, was way ahead of its time. The Amiga models  rank among the particularly popular home computers of the 1980s and 1990s. The A500, A1200, and several other Amigas had the motherboard and a floppy drive integrated into the keyboard case. More professional variants like the A3000 were built more like a PC and housed the mainboard, expansion cards, and drives in a desktop or tower case.
According to Wikipedia , the Amiga 500 is the best-selling model, which is what prompted Retro Games Ltd. to launch a replica to be released in March 2022, dubbed the A500 Mini (Figure 1) . The manufacturer is already known for reissues of other Commodore computers, such as the C64 (in miniature format and full size with a working keyboard) and VC20 (full size only).
For a good Amiga emulation, you don’t have to wait for the A500 Mini. Emulators are available for practically all platforms (even for the old MS-DOS) that bring that Amiga feel to other hardware with varying levels of setup overhead. In the Raspberry Pi world, the Pi 400 is a very good choice for use as an Amiga emulator because, like the original keyboard Amigas, it combines a keyboard, mainboard, and storage device in a single housing.
