    Wanted Amiga 1200 Wanted - no silly prices please

    I am after an amiga 1200, id even consider non working ones, parts or accessories as I want to do out a retro room for amiga 1200 stuff.

    I realise they are selling for silly money on ebay but I'm asking for myself, not to sell on and make a profit on I will be keeping it for myself.

    I do have emulators and every single amiga game ever released on a bluray disc but its not the same.

    thanks lads.

    if I remember rightly as I'm wanting something I don't need the date/time stamp

    cheers lads

    I remember saving all my pennies back in the day ready for launch day. Standing outside my local nerd shop waiting for it to open.

    Fantastic machines the 1200. So sad they went bust.

    Thanks to piggzy

    Tell me about it mate I save for ages for the 1200, they were very underrated those machines and I enjoyed every minute of mine, I programmed a speech emulator and a kids painting program called kids paint. all done in amos. I could not even clear a screen these days (oh wait CLS!)

    Off the top of my head weren't they about £180 brand new back in the day.


    Edit: fuck me a quick google shows it launched at £399. I did well saving up that :-) I think my old man paid half from memory.

    Back in the day I paid £399 for my Amiga 500 on launch day and then went back the next day for the 512MB upgrade @ £99. Then spent the day messing around with Amiga Paint and gawping at Marble Madness.

    Thanks to crazyal

    Hardware was amazing.

    I could be wrong but wasn't Babylon 5 rendered on a bunch of Amiga A4000's ?!?!

    Sad times they went bust.

    If I remember correctly, it was a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] board that did the magic, but these could only be used in higher end Amigas.

    If we're gonna hijack it, lets do it proper.

    My Commodore 64 is better than your speccy dot-crawl shit.

    Also, which was better - BASF-90's or TDK-Chrome SAX-90's?

    Ti-99/4A >> ZX80 >> ZX81+RAM Pack >> VIC-20

    Then my golden era of Atari 800XL + Happy drive and C64 + 1541 drive both hooked up to a Philips CM8833 monitor. I'll never forget opening the post one morning to find 2 discs labelled 'Ballblaster' and 'Behind Jaggi Lines' - I didn't leave the room in days..

    Although I was jealous of Speccy users for having Lunar Jetman and Atic Atac. When they first come out I remember just standing in WHSmiths for hours looking at those 2.
