Amiga 1200 for 15$

by lakanman Mon May 28, 2018 12:02 am

I found the Unbelievable A1000 Weekend Haul at Reddit and then i found this site.

Here is my Amiga score.

I found this at a second hand store here in Sweden for 15$. The Amiga 1200 works perfectly. :D I don't use that ghetto AT in Atari case power supply. My friend still had he's old Amiga 500 power supply at the addict so he gave it to me.

Image

EDIT:

My friend found this for me. I paid 10$. The power button at the back still works!

Image

Image

And the last thing. I found a ACA-1231/42 accelerator card at sold auctions at tradera without any bids because the seller sold it as defective just because the clock didn't work. The starting bid was at 100$. I mailed him and told him that I want to buy it for 100$ but he didn't want to sell it for that because it was "defective". So i got it for 70$ shipped! =)

Nah the Amiga 1200 got a bit "ghetto" touch. Someone used other screws and there is a square sawn in the trapdoor. Someone used a turbo card and used some cooling or something. If you see the IDE cable to the left. It went out from the side. Maybe to use a cd-drive.

@lakanman hm.. that's annoying. Maybe you could pre-order a new case. That's probably what I would do if I aimed to keep it.

When I first bought my A1200 a few years back, the first thing I grabbed was an ACA1232 accelerator. It's been awesome and reliable. It has played every game I have thrown at it with no issue. Back then, they were a fantastic deal as most old school accelerators went for crazy cash.

I like the tape drive that appears to be connected via an IDE cable! That made me chuckle.

If I do manage to get myself an Amiga 1200, I'd gladly throw the cash down to get an ACA1233n for it. A full 128MB RAM and a fast 030? Oh hells yeah! :)
