lets see...

Going by recent Ebay prices.

A1200 = 45
Ram Card = 50
Midi = 10
SCART cable = 10
HDD = 5 max
All other bits = 10

130 if all bought separately.

You did OK. The HDD will need replacing with something bigger (I suggest a 4GB CF card and IDE adapter - 10 - 15 delivered)

Good luck!

Yup I have bought them for less and sold them for more...

edit.

A quick scan of ebay and I have to say 65 seems more realistic.

Personally, once you get the CF card and adapter, I would just install ClassicWB.

Would save you a lot of time and would give you an excellent starting foundation. Plus WHDLoad is already installed and configured plus many other applications.


Its the mutt's nuts (as you UK'ers would say).

Ripped off on the postage... yes!

Otherwise quite a good price for the system.
