What is interesting is the price of used A1200 accelerator cards will go up if 1500 chipram only A1200s are sold.

It depends on whether there will be 1500 new users, or whether 1500 people buy one to refresh their key caps and case.

Just 1000 new AGA owners and 1000 new Amiga owners wanting even just to add fast ram to remove the 50% drop in speed using only chip ram will have a serious effect prices on the few used accelerators left out there.

Jens should seriously think about producing 28mhz 8mb 020 cards, 030 is no faster anyway.

AmigaKit have updated their home page and added the 1200 for £104.13 with a delivery time of TBA:

http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=40_85&products_id=305

They also have a stack of Config options to go with it (It's definitely a different page to the old 1200 Magic Pack item).

Why do you think that?

Not refurbs at this link http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=668 - says quite clearly New Old Stock.

Anyways, I think I'll have to buy a couple if I can...

I don't think either of those two AmigaKit A1200 offerings have changed in months. Both have been T.B.A for quite some time.

And for anyone wondering, their refurbed A1200's when they did have them were extremely high quality and looked borderline mint/new.


Hopefully they are able to source some from Petro as I think they would be the best way to obtain these units. I would rather buy one from Amigakit with some markup in them then deal with Petro directly. Nothing against Petro, just from a business standpoint with regards to warranty and shipping issues its easier to deal with a business.

I would buy the WHOLE stock easily...

... but from my calculations, you would need 2x 40' container to transport 1500 Amigas in Magic Pack, and that is with very optimized loading, so it may not be trivial to store.
