iAmiga
A light-hearted spoof Amiga created by Joshua Walker during 1999. He envisioned an A500-like unit that would compete with the iMac and use existing Amiga technology. He even created a specification list and fictional comments from Amiga Inc. on why they supposedly had decided to use the A500 case design:

"It was there, it was cheap, and it's a good case. We had been having trouble fitting it all into an A1200 case, especially with the modem, and that is why we chose the larger A500 case, although the final colours have not yet been decided."
