This is local to me which is very rare for amiga items. I was strangely tempted to start bidding on it. Not the way I ever thought I would buy a 4000T though. For now I've just been watching the auction.

I'm having a really hard time figuring out what's going on on that motherboard from the pictures.  Looks like if you breathe on it wrong it'll fall apart though; nice system, I hope he packs it well!  :laugh1:

I cant see an A4000T mainboard in there. Am I missing something?

On closer inspection I think it's a early 4000T (not the green one) built into a case!

It was built from a blank mainboard. I read the forum he linked in the auction. It seems a batch of empty boards got released and a few people built machines out of them. Its a really neat site.

This was just another a1k.org project like the GBA1000, so nothing really superspecial bout this one.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Oh come on, its a populated A4000T board put together by a user. I would love to get the parts together for something like this.

Sure,but your 1st post suggested that it was some sort of oneof board, while it's only one in many.

Did think about buying such a set back than, but just like the GBA it goes far beyond my skill set.

Unlikely, as with all models of Amiga the 4000 and 4000T are no longer in production and very few 4000Towers were ever made compared to other models thats why when they do pop up they sell for as much as they did new.
Amiga 2000HD Indivision ECS
Amiga 4000D towerised OS 3.1 and 3.9 on CF cards
Indivision AGA, Mediator 4000

How many unpopulated A4000T motherboards you think there are floating around?  Or entire replacement chipsets, for that matter?  :lol:

Oh, ZILLIONS easily! Why so glum? Certainly there's several pallettes worth buried next to the Atari ET cartridges were :)
