Worst deal

Again 1997, the A3000 I got free didnt work. It had no PSU. A3000 PSU's were (still are?) like rocking horse poo. With no money and no idea if the A3000 even worked I sold the other parts on Amibench for about 80.

I used some of the cash to buy a replacement PSU and hard drive bracket (from Amibench creator Mark Wilson) fortunately it DID work and I spent the next 3 weeks getting to grips with KS1.4

At the time I thought that it was a good deal, I got a working A3000 and I saw no use for the other bits. With hindsight 80 was pretty low.
