This week we discuss Dave Haynie's article where he talks about what could have been the next gen Amiga before Commodore folded. We also have two computer case swap stories. Can you put a PC into an Amiga A500 style case and how pretty can a BBC computer in a PC tower case be? Turns out the answers are yes and very.
We are joined by Alex from Arcade Archive who talks about setting up his new retro arcade which is open to the public.
All that and the community question of the week.
