Nice!
I think I read somewhere the microbox case design is mentioned specifically on the ps2 patents. I wonder if was the same industrial designer.

a PAL Amiga 1200 w/RGB to SCART cable and a PAL CD32! Oh hey, wait I JUST DID TODAY!

Thanks amigakit!

Finally real Amiga gaming is coming to America. Also just bought a Multisystem PAL/NTSC tv with RGB SCART for $50 off of an Airman who just got back from the UK!

A Virtuality 1000 series. I believe these had an Amiga 3000 in them?

Cool if you want to stagger around throwing up and not have to spend money on 15 pints of beer.

I was in London this weekend. We went to the Trocadero to see what was new.
Part of me was hoping to see if any traces of their Amiga Virtuality sytem remained.... Of course I needn't have bothered lol

Yeah id love to get hold of a nice A1200 with an 040/40 processor, nice 1gb internal hd. Maybe an external CD drive for CD32 stuff, with M1438S monitor. (the one that did PAL and VGA screen modes) Be a great machine for games demos and generally just about everything classic amiga. I must look on ebay!

If properly marketed, good eBay advert, lots of high resolution pictures held off-site, open to the whole world, costings for postage to each of the major international country, insurance against DOA, long running auction ending on a week day, plenty of links to the auction on all the Amiga and retro forums.

Upgraded (if necessary) to full 50MHz 68030 with a 64Mbyte of RAM, an IDE->CF adapter + CF card installed with Workbench 3.1

I'd say about $400-$600 each.

You might have to spend $50 and a few hours on each to get them to top spec but it will be worth it.

Thanks, they are already 50mhz, with 50mhz fpu, cf card 2mb, and 128mb of memory. I might put one up and check how it sells.

What about blizzard ppc. I see one sold last week for $1300.00, is this normal? I have two both 060 cards, one with 175mhz ppc and one with 240mhz ppc. Did his sell just because it is the fastest or are they all going for this price?

That is insanely high, I've seed about $800 before.

Obviously a 240 will fetch more but BPPC's are the most sought after hardware for Amiga.

I did not even know that the SX32 PRO could take 128Mbytes.

In my case i will drool for an A3000 plus. Yes one of those Amigas 3000 with AGA that were prototypes, do not confuse with the non working AAA prototypes.

aga would be great in the 3000. I always hoped they would come out with aga on zorro III board.
