Well I have finshed the whole design and have a definite PCB, even wrote a manual for this computer but there was not much interest in this kit. To get out of all the costs made during the making of this computer I have to sell at least 10 of these kits for around € 200-220 Euro but I don't think there will be that much interest as I see there are very few responses on this thread. So I only made one for myself

The interest in this board died at the moment you stated you were only selling expensive kits or even more expensive ready built units.
While I can understand that you would like to get financial return on your investment this is not the way this community works.
I guess you have some PCBs left as single boards are not commonly produced, refusing to sell them at price a little above your producing cost of your board will not make your project any more profitable.
Just my few cents.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

200 Euro each or 200 Euro for 10?

I think its a really neat project, but price point and no case make it kinda problematic. I'd love to see that board inside a TS1500 case with the rubber chicklet keys for instance.
