Well, the A1200 with CF hard drive and accelerator didn't do it for me - just didn't feel the same as it did during the days of swapping disks on the oul' A500. So have my eyes open for the right deal...

Interested in a PAL machine with a UK keyboard. It's going to be heading to America, so no need of the power supply (unless it's one that'd work over here!). Bonus points for rev8 (what I used to have!) and an external floppy.

Might not be worth it, since postage to America is likely to cost more than what the machine is worth, but thought I'd ask! :)

Yeah, saw your ad. €200 is a bit more than I want to spend on an A500 when I'd still need a PSU, though- thanks.

I have one with UK keyboard, let me check revision and get back to you.

You can get it for a good price, floppy also works fine.

Will pm

hi
could surely post a PAL A500 to the US but with AZERTY or QWERTZ keyboard.
cheers
