An Amiga 1200 in Black

If you were thinking about visiting them U.K. islands, I do believe you should really hurry up and make it there before this UK-only auction for a brilliantly modified Amiga 1200 is over. You lucky UK residents can simply bid on the thing instead, for it is indeed a fully upgraded, modified and indeed black-sprayed A1200. The computer comes with a 40GB hard drive, a DVD-R drive, 3 USB ports, a network card, the 68030-based Blizzard 1230 MK3 accelerator board, a CD32 controller, extra power supply, OS3.9 and of course its lovely AGA chip. Oh, and, should you care for one, the seller is apparently willing to throw in a monitor at no extra charge.

  1. Now I'm really sad I don't live in UK! This is easily the sexiest Amiga I've ever seen. And one of the most powerful.

  3. Wow. That is definitely the coolest looking Amiga going.

  4. That thing looks sooo hot, shame the CD32 controller wasn't really up to much. Some of the most unsatisfying direction pads ever made are on those controllers.

  5. You are right on the CD32 joypad Garrett, though it does look rather good. Then again, one could keep the Amiga and donate the controller to some sort of gnome-run charity.

  6. If you can find one, Competition Pro made a lovely MegaDrive-style CD32 pad. T'was perfect for playing Gloom on.

  7. I'll have a look, though admittedly the best controller for the Amiga remains the brilliant Pacman. Then again you wouldn't be able to play Gloom.
