It's been posted to his Facebook page, so we should know soon.

It seems to be true. But I think you have to take the whole bunch of 1500x. AND perhaps it wasn't ment to be public on FB. It was directed to the owner of the "Amiga Future" magazine.

I'm sory, I wasn't aware, that this part of the other forum was only for members. For me the link works :D :D

Not somewhere, they in India probably.

That he once shipped overthere :D

At least it seems that in one hour over 30x A1200 would have been sold in the other forum (two for me :D)

I remeber one amiga show in St Louis that Petro had with him a business partner in India daughter with him. There were news stories about Amiga Tech selling A1200s in India. I'm sure this is a valid possibility. Great news!

can we have a working link please? (I'm not on CIABOOK either)

@thread

Are these the Amiga A1200 manufactured by Amiga Technologies supplied in original 'Magic Pack' Box (Kickstart 3.1 ROMs)?

AFAIK

- no price but I would pay up to EUR 150.-- =  $180.-- for NOS
- noone realy knows where they are, nor how much they cost, neither if packed or bulkware
- AND you have to take the whole lot (1500 +/-) and thats a Container or two, not a small package

It is a very hot iron. One can easaly burn the fingers. What if you only sell 1300, leaving 200 still in the (rented) storage.

(about 45 would have been sold for now, that leaves about 1455 still on stock)

I'm sure that would be the spec. If you look into the old amiga mags you can see info on India and the magic packs iirc

Looking at the "Stock expected" and "TBA"...

wonder if there's any connection?

Or is there more of this stock floating around?

I'm friends with Petro on Facebook, just looked at his wall now and cannot see any mention of anything like this.

Also the first link just takes me to a German log-in page.

I'd have to see some more proof before believing this to be true.  I find it unlikely they'd have been sitting around for almost 20 years?

That said I wouldn't mind getting hold of an A1500 if it does turn out to be true.  

Cut & paste the original post for us non-a1.org members anyone?
