Funny AmiWest story
So as you know, AmigaKit was at/sponsoring this years' AmiWest show. They had to ship a significant chunk of their merchandise all the way from the UK, including a bunch of A1200s that apparently cost quite a bit to ship.
My memory is hazy as to whether this resulted in higher prices than the web store or not, but this is where it got interesting - they instructed all other vendors at the show not to sell their 1200s for a lower price. This brilliant scheme soon blew up in their faces; they sold a grand total of one machine and were forced to ship all of that heavy unsold merchandise all the way back. Whoops!
