Commodore Goes Portable In Custom Amiga 1200 Suitcase

Portable-Amiga-A1200-SuitcaseFrom Donkey Kong Country inspired Game Boy Advance handhelds to Nintendo NES consoles crammed into classic toys, a large majority of the desirable items in the retro gaming world today are handmade creations. Yet another addition into this one-of-a-kind collection is the Commodore Amiga Suitcase, the ultimate solution to gaming on the go.

Exactly as it sounds, this portable Amiga 1200 is a ready to play fold out system, all enclosed in a metallic suitcase. The case’s upper half contains a 15” LCD screen and gamepads ready to go, whilst the lower section holds an upgraded Amiga computer - powered up with a Blizzard 1260 acceleration card and CompactFlash card loaded with games.

Built from scratch, every section of this suitcase is crafted around Commodore’s vintage computer, showcasing an obvious love for the system. The designer of this beauty, Sébastien Marchand, recently shared images spanning the two weeks it took to make this portable computer on Flickr. Needless to say it’s left us feeling rather jealous and wishing we could get hold of one ourselves.
