Sorry for the bad quality, i just snapped this pic with my phone.

I have some coloured speaker lights playing along with my A1200, it's very effective for demos and mods!

My laptop is my "games room" LOL.

Some great set-ups and pictures there guys. Was the IBM702 loading time quicker than the ZX81 back in the day? Heh heh.

This was my games room approx 15 - 17 years ago.

From looking at the picture;

A1200 (had an Amitech Hawk ram board in there with 8MB if i recall).. there was a 1GB 3.5" hard drisk rammed in there too (surprisingly it fit quite well!)
Commodore 1084ST monitor
Horrible Quickjoy Mouse (which I changed not soon after)
External floppy
28.8Kbps modem (from my BBS days)
HP 540 inkjet
Mouse house (that's the soft toy next to my modem)
Quickjoy joystick (forget the model number but I have one of those here now as my favourite joystick)


I'm sat in that exact spot right now; things have changed an awful lot though since then (including the wallpaper)... just emulation although I do have a boxed A1200 hanging around for nostalgia (not the one in the photo)...
