  3. Checkmate 1500 plus

    Ah well, now that my towered a1200 has gone nearly as far as I want to take it (PPC is out of my league), my mind has turned to a new project. Despite all my comments about never being interested in big box amigas, I have now ordered a Checkmate case for my other a1200!

  5. Musings.......

    Well as I didn't want to start the usual flame war about emulators vs real kit and what is an emulator and is a vampire a real amiga and all of that....I thought I would put a few thoughts here where no one will see them

    Personally I believe that the best thing is whatever does it for each individual - there is no fixed line as such. For me I like the original hardware. I get a kick out of using the original hardware. Yes, I use a CF hard drive, and an Indy Mk2 and I connect ...
