    I always get a hard on when I see such beauty like this. congrats, your item seems very well kept !

    though the price is little bit on the high side I must say. That price is usually for a system with full 16mb ram/ a 040 accelerator or something. just a tip, I hope you get a deal though.

    I hope I haven't breached any site rules here, please shoot me if I did ! Argh !

    Would like at least 200, saw a basic spec one go for 225 the other day on ebay, but I don't like selling on ebay if I can avoid it

    Saw a Blizzard 1230/4 go for 200 euro on Ebay and decided to sell mine too on Ebay, but got only a highest bid of 125 euro ... Ebay is about lots of different prices for identical objects, don't think that everyone wants to pay the same amount of cash. Also realize that several winners of auctions with high prices never even do a payment, they only like to raise the prices for a sick kind of fun but never intend to do any payment, a nightmare for sellers

    Yeah Effy, I know what you mean. People raising the price with no intention to pay are just total Dick Heads. Deleting them isn`t that easy though!
    A very good eBay seller of Amiga stuff has been "StillTheHardest". His stuff is just like brand new. Some of his choice items (PPC accelerators) were advertised more than once. Just that very thing...the b`stards!

    Tell me about it, sold a camera on there yesterday and despite putting Paypal only and UK bidders only, some foreign bloke won at the last minute and asked for my bank details, um I think not

    So yeah I like to avoid ebay It really hurts to sell the A3000 but I need to find an A4000 otherwise I'd keep it

    No offense intended but have you thought about swapping it for an A4000 ? There are several differences between those two like the A4000 having AGA and the possibility to use any turboboard without having to buy a kickstart 3.1, but yours already has got kickstartchip 3.1. The biggest advantage of the A3000 is that you can use a vga monitor and to do the same with an A4000 you need to buy an internal or external scandoubler ... personally I prefer a naked A4000 over a naked A3000 but yours is nicely expanded, I have to agree on that
