Boxed Amiga 600HD

If you are willing to live without the HD part of this particular Amiga 600HD, then you are in for a very well priced treat indeed. You will after all be getting a boxed Amiga 600 complete with its manuals, system disks and cables, that will also be accompanied by a mouse, a variety of game-filled disks, a boxed copy of Deluxe Paint III, a joystick and 5 boxed games, which include the amazing Frontier Elite II. Seller ships worldwide.  


  1. I've always liked the A600. It's like the unloved step-child of the Amiga family - well, that and the CDTV... I bought one as my college computer (although I was looking for an A1200, but CBM had gone bust by this point and there were none to be found on the shelves). Thanks to it, I was able to keep abreast of my college work and keep myself entertained with the Zeewolf, Cannon Fodder, Desert Strike and the like. And you've never played Indiana Jones & the Fate of Atlantis properly until you've graduated from the hell of swapping floppies to the sheer, unadulterated joy of having a hard drive.

    You could always slap a CF card in a PCMCIA adapter and use that as the hard-drive. Should be pretty speedy that way. I'll have to try that with my A600 some time.

  2. Ah, yes, thanks for reminding me what a torture it was trying to play adventures with a single floppy drive... A HD was such a huge step forward...

    Also, thanks for bringing up the biggest asset of the A600 -besides its size and look, that is- the PCMCIA slot.

  3. Yeah, and don't forget to increase your ram, since the standard 1meg won't let you run games directly from HD!

  4. Indeed, indeed, a wise and handy remark that dear Mik. Thanks!
