It's the other way round: The A1 will benefit from the A1200 motherboard
(remember the A1 is standard hardware, pretty much like a Mac). With an A1200
* A1 has access to the custom chips (for games and old apps like Scala or Brilliance)
* A1 can read Amiga formatted floppy disks
* You can continue to use digital Amiga joysticks
Stuff like that (some people bought very expensive and high-quality A1200 soundcards,
some my want to use their 4player adaptor etc.)...
Personally, I don't need it, but there seems to be demand for such a solution.

50 UKP were mentioned somewhere.
