Ever notice like on A4000's that certain parts of it will yellow more than others?  I also have a C=1902 that is fine but the door is yellowed!  On my A4000 all is fine except for the plate under the floppy! Some plastics yellow more than others.
;-) Either that, or the parts in question have been swapped from other Amigas, with a different degree of yellowing.

Well my '2000s keyboard could yellow, but I doubt the steel case will.

See, you guys should have bought an Amiga 2000HD, then you would not have this problem.  The Amiga 500, 600, and 1200 all have those cheap, low-quality plastic cases.  The Amiga 2000, 2000HD, 2500, 1500, 3000, 3000T, 4000, and 4000T all have higher quality metal cases.  The Amiga 2000 class of Amiga computers have the highest quality cases.     :-P

Well here's one badly discoloured commodore model that is past help :-)

-edit-

Now I got deja vu - I'm sure I put a picture of Bargain Hunter's very own David Dickenson somewhere hereabouts last time...

@Doomaster

Remember the bezel on the front of the A2000 is the same plastic that will yellow. :-o

Dunno what kind of A2000 you guys have, but the front panel of my A2000 isn't beige, it's dark grey and if it has become yellow it hardly noticable and not at all like the more beige A500/600/1200/4000 etc. Yes, you can spot that it's slightly discolored but it not like with other models, imho.

Yeah it's not the same color and it is less noticeable but the bezel on mine is slightly discolored from time.

Question: If teeth whitener makes yellow teeth white, does it work on yellowing computer cases? :-D

I don't know how teeth whitener works, but it might be worth a try. :-)
