Amiga A1200 on the Tv show 'Bones' on SkyOne - 20/12-07

Evening

Was anyone else watching "Bones" on SkyOne this evening... They had a black Amiga A1200 running workbench




Whats with the 5.25" floppy drive box underneith (thats actually a old IBM PS2, the power switch on the left gives it away), the A1200 has a 3.5" floppy drive..

Shame the game that was on there was a complete spoof.

thats the Amiga I saw on bones, it was an A1200 not an A500.

I have amended my original thread :-)

Ah, it says a lot about someone when your wife shouts upstairs to say "Come quick, there's an Amiga on the TV". Quite how my "non Miggy friendly wife" spotted this is beyond me but I had already been on this forum for the first mention of this in mid November!

No it's not, the block to the left is the IBM badge and that is infact either an 'IBM PC' if it has twin floppies or an 'IBM PCXT' if it has one floppy and a hard disk.
It could also be one of Michael Dell's upgraded IBM PC's in which case it will be an IBM PC with a hard disk.
As far as im aware none of the PS/2 models had internal 5.25in floppies.

And I'm pretty sure the mouse on the right is from an Amstrad 80286 PC.
