www.powerc.com

99.95 for a brand spanking new A1200 they still havn't come down any in the last year or so, gutted!!

Is this the only place that deals with them in the uk?

Do you have a great need of it being new, and the seller to reside in the UK? I can recommend you many stores that ship internationally, and I can recommend you to buy a mint, used A1200.

I asked Bill McEwen about two years ago to restart production of classic Amigas, and also to bring out an A5000 and portable Amiga.

He said it would cost $30 million to make the chips etc., but I don't believe him. Surely it would be cheaper to make the custom chips now than it was 10 years ago. Especially since they could be combined onto a single chip. Oh well :-(

@Zeewolf, last week I saw a shitload of A1200's on eBay(UK) and some were cross-posted on eBay(US). There was quite a few with different configs as well, but I never picked any up because they would have had to ship to the states
