Wanted: Amiga 1200. Cash waiting.

Hi. Guys. Prices on ebay are a bit random so I thought I would ask here. I am looking for a nice clean white a1200 computer. Any configuration or setup considered.

I am located in Ireland.

Hi Adrian,

I am soon to list (on eBay) a A1200 with power supply for £250 + £15 p&p.
Case is in nice condition (no yellowing) but the keys are mixed shades of grey!
Refurbished by me.

I can offer you £230 + £10 p&p using paypal.
Will add photos when i have washed the case.

Sounds like a good deal- However I did find one in the meantime for around the same price- I have only received it today so have yet to check it- alas on this one the keys are yellowed... i don't suppose there's a reliable way to de-yellow them?It's not something i would try myself...

I’m looking for the same thing in the USA but it must be recapped and have an internal bootable CF card. White, black or red please, no yellow fever here.

My retro brighting procedure is ok but not perfected. Reading the 100+ post thread here on the topic may be required

My keyboard is not the best example of bright keys

I can get a quote for 5~6 Kg to the US. I am hoping to sell before December.
I have not re-capped this A1200 only replaced the faulty video DAC.
( still need to service the floppy drive ! )

I might possibly be able to re-cap and add a CF card before then.
With the colouring; i have nearly finished my dust free spay area for acrylic painting any
cases. I'm not sure about the keys? would you recommend a type of plastic dye?
