Amiga A1200 Tower (A1260T) vintage computer

Zorro II Bus Board.
Buddha & Catweazle IDE and HD floppy interface.
1.5GB Hard Drive.

IOBlix high speed comms card.
880K floppy disk.

Standard A1200 Specifications:

CPU: Motorola 68EC020 @ 14 MHz.
Graphics: AGA chipset (Advanced Graphics Architecture).
Display: Max 640 x 512 (PAL Interlaced) up to 262,144 colours in HAM-8 mode.

Memory: 2MB RAM (expandable).
Software Media: 880K floppy disk.

A1200s in Tower systems with extra processors and bus boards could go for as much as £300 or more. 68060 cpu accelerators can sell for £300 on their own, so bear this in mind.

Until I get the time to write a detailed article on the Amiga, here's a video I recorded about the system.
