This is really great info. I really want a 1200 but damn, I see sites selling them for $400... the ones on eBay seem to be either crap or overpriced and "as is." I'd love to see a good "list of stuff" of a good basic setup for AHX, etc. but I am sure it is easy enough to find on the posted links.


Amigakit have new old stock A1200s for £150 ($240), and Amigakit are fairly overpriced anyway I've been told, so second hand from somewhere else should be much cheaper. Or are they really that much rarer in the USA?

I can't find the site but they were selling the new old stock in the US for around $360 I think. Used ones on eBay have been going for around $200. I'll definitely check out Amigakit - sounds like a much better deal.

EDIT: I have been looking more and have seen a few pop up in the states for as low as $100 so I guess eBay is just the wrong place to look for one of these.

On topic, fellas. Make a new thread smile

Just bought a 1200 for $70 on eBay! Will pick it up when I'm in London in a few weeks. Excited. big_smile

That's cheap. Great!
Now you need an accelerator, extra RAM, a compactflash IDE adapter, a PCMCIA card reader....

I actually feel rather silly now because right after I bought mine for 48 GBP (which I thought was a good deal at the time), I saw like 5 more each go for around 1 GBP with 10 or 20 pounds shipping.

Upgrading Amigas is an expensive downward spiral of death! I promised myself I wouldn't attempt it. XD
