Amiga Laptop

Hi all,

I'm thinking of creating a laptop from my Sam440ep.

I realise there are several problems to overcome, size of case, charging (connecting batteries to Sam440 motherboard).

Anyone got advice on possible routes to take, possible laptop cases that would accommodate a Sam440 board.

There more advice I get the more chance I have of succeeding.

If anyone has tried and failed I would also like to know how far you got.

If anyone else is thinking of doing such a project I'd also like to hear from you.

Simon Archer built a TINY custom case around his Sam440 motherboard. Not exactly a laptop, but part of the problem you need to solve. He did post some pictures of it (I think on this site), but sadly a quick search failed to find them. Would probably be easy if I could remember his username...

edit: Found him ("Rigo"). Here are his pictures:

You can see that he uses a Pico PSU (or something similar), so you might want to use one in the confined space of laptop-sized case.

No, but as I said, it has some of the same issues to solve, due to the tight space... Well, I thought it was better than nothing, seeing as no-one else replied here :-/

Decided Sam440 in laptop case is not my cup of tea so thought my own A.L.I.C.E. was a possible way for.

So all please welcome E.M.M.A. (Emulation Machine, My Amiga), possible name changes welcome.

I have bought myself a 14" laptop and will commence.

I now have all I need.

Well part 2 is ready https://blitterwolf.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... a-laptop-emma-part-2.html , remember this is just my experiences and doesn't include a step by step guide by me.

I am just doing this because I have always wanted an Amiga laptop and I like the idea of A.L.I.C.E. but not the possible price tag.
