    Default Amiga 4000D in Power Tower Case

    It is with great sadness that I continue to purge my Amiga collection. I've discovered that I just don't have enough time to enjoy all of my hobbies (wife, kids, work... you know the drill) and it's time to get my babies to new homes where they will be enjoyed.

    Here is my pride and joy, an Amiga 4000D in a Power Tower case. This was a long term restoration project and has had some serious investment already done:

    First, I had the motherboard and CPU card refurbished by tbtorro in Denmark:

    A4000: Full recap, audio fix, RCA plug fix (right), 2xCIA fix, new SIMM sockets (metal clips), new lithium battery kit.
    A3640: Recap, caps polarity fix, CPU thermal pad fix

    The motherboard battery was intact and never leaked, so there was no battery acid damage. The SIMM sockets were intact, but I wanted to make I'd never have to worry about them, so I had them replaced. The CIA chips were flakey, so they were replaced and socketed just in case they need to be replaced again in the future. Apparently the A3460 board is rev 3.2 -- tbtorro noted the following:
    An interesting detail is that the A3640 card has the latest revision (according to the label anyway) U204 and U209 chips making this a Rev 3.2 card, however Rev 3.1 is printed on the silkscreen. The chips seem original so this must have been a late production run card where the chips are newer but the board still has the old printing.

    I replaced the power supply with a brand new Corsair CX750M 750 watt power supply, more than enough to handle any future expansion. There is an extra fan installed in one of the expansion slots and a Seagate 4.3GB drive. Here is a low down of the specs:

    - A3640 CPU card with 68040 CPU
    - 16MB RAM
    - 4.3GB Hard Drive
    - ELBOX A4000 Zorro III/II busboard
    - Two floppy drives (not sure if they are high density, but the previous owners said they were... no guarantee though!)
    - Amiga Keyboard & Mouse

    As for the negatives - there is a dent in the left side of the case, as shown in the pictures. And I'm missing the drive bay covers. There is a CD-ROM drive installed, but I've never used it and don't know if it works. That was beyond my abilities and I never got around to figuring it out. That's about it!

    I'm asking $3,000US + shipping and PayPal fees (unless you want to do friends & family) for this system or best offer.

    UPDATE 1/3/2018: Now $2,750 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/5/2018: Now $2,500 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/10/2018: Now $2,400 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/12/2018: Now $2,300 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/15/2018: Now $2,200 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/16/2018: Now $2,000 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/23/2018: Now $1,900 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/24/2018: Now $1,800 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/25/2018: Now $1,500 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 1/29/2018: Also available elsewhere
    UPDATE 2/20/2018: Now $1,400 US + shipping and PayPal fees
    UPDATE 2/27/2018: Now $1,300 US + shipping and PayPal fees

    I don't really want to sell it, but like I said above, I have no time for it and hope someone will buy it and give it a good home. Shipping only to the United States or Canada for now. It's big and heavy and I don't want to risk an overseas voyage. Note the monitor is not include, just the computer, mouse & keyboard.

    I have a bunch more items that will be listed shortly, so stay tuned!

    Thanks.

    Not sure if I'm allowed to ask this - but is there any interest from Europe and the UK for this system? I am nervous about shipping something large, heavy & valuable over seas... but I supposed I could give it a shot. The shipping will be expensive though - I will bubble wrap & double box the system to keep it safe.
