Some things we didn't do...
September 02, 2002
We're hard at work on a shiny new version 2 of the Mini-ITX.com online store at the moment, but we have got time to tell you of a few things around the web that caught our eye over the past few days.
First up is Spode's "Blue Meanie", an EPIA 800 inside a modified Optical drive case. Spode's put a lot of technical detail and construction pictures in into his guide which will prove useful for anyone attempting a case mod.

You've all heard of MAME, right? It's the ideal application for Mini-ITX - allowing you to play exact replicas of classic arcade games in the comfort of your living room. Ed at Arcade-In-A-Box said he'd send us one of the rather splendid EPIA 800 based consoles he has for sale (using authentic arcade cabinet components) if we mentioned him. Actually, he said no such thing. But it's worth a try. You can buy plans, kits and full systems from the site, which also looks like a good source of information for anyone thinking about making a Mini-ITX MAME box.
..Or you could buy a Mini-ITX pre-built into a lovingly restored classic games console, such as a NES. Kermit at retrosystem doesn't actually know this yet, but he's promised to shove an Eden into an Oric Atmos in return for a couple of case badges and a mention on this page. If you click on 'NES' and then 'Photo Gallery' you'll find a small guide on how he brought a Nintendo console into the 21st century courtesy of an EPIA 800. Like arcadeinabox, they provide kits and full systems. Or of course you could build your own, such as the SaturnPC or the PlayStationPC.
