A1200 PPC 233/60+Bvision+Zorro4 in tower. How much ?
« on: June 19, 2003, 09:21:52 PM »
Thinking about selling my Elbox tower A1200 after all, due to lack of time and maybe also a little bit of money. Don't worry, still have got my fully packed A4000 desktop that stays in my room. My girlfriend complains about not enough space and so some things have to go away, several pc's as well as my A1200. The configuration is as follows :

Elbox metal tower
A1200 with kickstart 3.1 and scandoubler so AGA cabe be displayed on vga screens
Blizzard PPC turboboard (2nd generation) with PPC 233 mhz and 68060 at 50 Mhz + SCSI , 64 Mb Ram module and one empty space for another module
Bvison gfx card of 8 Mb
Zorru4 busboard
the pc keyboard controller is made for PS1 keyboards but if you use a PS1 to PS2 keyboard adapter you can also use PS2 keyboards
I wanna keep my 20 Gb harddrive so I shall include a 10 Gb harddrive and put OS 3.9 on it.

Now how much can I ask for this and where do I have to post it ??

You're nuts.  :-)  :-)

Really thinking about selling that!!

I would never ever do that! In fact, just bought a second secondhand BlizzardPPC system with a GRex and a Voodoo.
Now I have got 2 Blizzard systems.

And an AmigaOne  :-D

How much should you ask is entirely up to you. I can however tell you
from first hand experience you can expect maybe $500USD for the
whole thing.

You could list it in Amiga.org's classifieds if you wished, or you
could put it on eBay.
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!

Mmm... I could use that system indeed...
Could you please post to this thread again when you've decided where to put it for sale...

(Can't belive you're about to sell such a wonder system, girls always want more room... How about buying her an apartment instead of selling it?) :-P (Just kidding ;-))

Actually I live in my own house which is a very modest one, which means not too big or fancy, just an ordinary house with 8 not too big rooms and all my computers are standing in the bedroom, and since I pay all the costs for the house I don't plan on renting an appartment just for my girlfriend, I'm not that rich !!
I used to have another A1200 with 1230 and CV64/3D and X-Surf and so on, I sold that one after I got the PPC  one. Now I do need to say something about the PPC machine. It sometimes refuses to boot up, espcially after a reset. Some people say that it generates too much heat, so I installed a so called 'Twin Cooler', a 5,25" thing that I've got also in my pc and there it makes the temperature drop by 15 degrees Celcius. I tried to remove memory from the PPC card so now there's 'only' 64 Mb. The Z4 busboard is now only filled with a Z4¬®Powerflyer and I first thought of keeping it for my A4000 but maybe it's better to get a Powerflyer 4000 for that machine. My A4000 desktop is filled with MK3 with scsi and a 68060, Vlab V1.3, Vlab/Motion, Toccata, Picasso IV, so don't think that the Amiga I want to keep is a low end thing. I also have got 3 or 4 working C64's and two 1541's, three external Genlock's for Amiga, an internal Magni Genlock that used to work in a A2000,
a A500 that doesn't recognize a drive, one AMD 1700+ that does most of my everyday work (internet) and a few other low end pc's that I try to sell too. I also have got a 19" monitor and a 17" TFT, but also a Commodore 1940 and a Amiga 1538 and also a very old vga 14' one that really needs to leave my room. Also don't forget our bed, the stereo equipment, my colelction of C64 floppies, my bigger collection of Amiga cdroms, and so on. I can't blame my girlfriend when she says that there's not much room left here, so some things have to leave. That way I hope to have money to expand my A4000 to a tower and so on ...

If I get enough than I might add a Hypercom serial Zorro card and a X-Surf ethernet Zorro card too to the package ... but what would be the minimum price I can ask ???

You're even nutier!  :-)  :-)  :-)

You had an A4000 with a CyberstormPPC and  a CyberVisionPPC and GRex. The mother of ALL Amigas.

But if he really wants to sell it, there are probably plenty of people in the Netherlands willing to buy it. Just go to www.amiga.nl and place it there.

EDIT: There is only 1 problem with the Blizzard and CyberStorm. The rediculous support from DCE and all that develop for it.

Let me make one thing very clear : my A4000 stays !! I only wanna sell my A1200 Elbox tower with everything in it except the 20 Gb harddrive, but I shall replace it with a 10 Gb one. It's not that I quit on Amiga !! There are two sites on the internet that I go to often, one is Ebay and the other is Amiga.org which I am very grateful for the help that it has gvien me. I only sell one machine, not my dreams and hopes !!
