Other stuff that increases value includes no yellowing of the plastic, 3.1 roms, harddisk, a CDRom and even if it just has fast ram (that speeds things up lots on it's own, never mind an accellerator!).

Well it's in very good condition, even the box and manuals. There's no yellowing at all and it has 3.1 roms. No harddisk though, unfortunately. I'm probably going to tower mod it anyway when I get an accelerator...2.5" drives are so expensive! Thanks for all the help!

No they're not :-), just try to get one on ebay. Any HD will do really, I can't imagine tiny HDs below 1 gig can be that expensive (and that is more than sufficient for OS 3.1!).

Don't tower your nice white 1200 :-( . Put it back in the box and keep it. Take an ugly aged yellow scratched dirty 1200 from the flea market. Put that into a tower. When you get fed up with your towermod you always have the nice white 1200 waiting in the box looking like it is supposed to.

Yeah, good point. I mean it is too shiny and clean to be butchered up. And I have a couple of 1200s exactly how you described just waiting to be hacked at. Why does it have to have 3.1 roms! I'd hate to break that lovely shiny warranty seal to get them out. It almost makes me wish that someone had opened it up before I got hold of it! :-D Well, at least I'd have the pleasure of taking it out of the box and stroking the intact warranty seal and the lovely clean white keyboard. Mmmmmmmmm. :-P

If you need 3.1 and don't wanna open A1200, the only option is softkick. IIRC best thing would be to get some of those Blizzards because there are programs like blizkick and they are fast (though any other fast RAM should do, too).
Better sorry than worry.
