Auctions are dangerous. But sometimes, you can find a lot which is not only a good price, but holds items of incredible retro rareness. These two are definitely up there. You could say they're both AM-AZING and SPEC-TACULAR.

  • Magic cleaning tip for anything: hit the grubbiest spots first but don't really scrub. Clean the rest. The grubby spots now had time to soak and will come off much easier.

  • Oh god. You have fine examples of my first two computers there. Speccy 128s are a design masterpiece and Amiga 1200's are so bloody lovely. I'm so jealous. I wish I had kept hold of mine instead of flogging it with the 68060 accelerator, Hi-res monitor, genlock, video digitiser and CD-ROM I had for it... and buying a crappy old Windows 95 PC from Dixons.

  • what.... the 200€ machines back then was new ones? explains why everything was in so insanely good shape when i bought it... it had never been opened. (200€ even then was cheap for an Amiga 1200 in Norway, problem was finding one that didn't look like shit and would ship em here)

  • *You consider an AMIGA to be "retro"? Seriously? When you said you had one of the most sought after machines, I expected you to pull out an early IMSAI: Amiga is probably the last thing I expected. Finding a working IMSAI today is a $5000 and up proposition. THAT's "rare"!*

  • Why not use a Popsicle stick, toothpick, or old credit card for those hard to reach, inset areas instead of the blade of metal shears. An analogy would be to use sandpaper to get the bird poop off you auto, you wouldn't do that, would you? Thanks for your great videos!!! I just had to come back and add that if the shears are truly your tool of choice, you might also consider cleaning the keyboards with a petrol soaked rag, and whilst the keys are still moist, a close flame would ignite tremendous cleaning power!!! Happiness to all!

  • I've still got my Amiga 1200 (original Commodore, not the ESCOM version with slightly less compatible floppy). I've even got the first 80GB Conner 2.5" HD I put in it, which I later replaced with a 4GB 2.5" HD. Later I also upgraded it with a Blizzard mk IV 68030 + SCSI + FPU, which I understand fetch quite a lot of money second hand. I'll never sell it though - too many memories. It's the first computer I got online with - first with dial-up Bulletin Board Systems (1994-1996), then later on the internet (1996-) via Demon Internet service and using either IBrowse or Voyager web browsers, YAM for e-mail.

  • Got a toast rack 128k in box as well, the last Sinclair machine. The Amstrad Speccies did break some compatibility with games. I'd dispense with that Sinclair PSU ASAP too, I don't think PSUs were Sinclair's strong point :)

  • It's amazing that for some people the new millennium never exists. It will always be the 20th century. I threw my Amiga 1200 away (Along with about 300 floppies, the PSU and the 68020 expansion pack,) after I had it for about 3 years and got a PC instead, and I am so glad I did! I loved the Amiga at the time, but then a real computer came along and I have never been happier. My Speccy I never warmed to from Day 1, but it was a cheap computer (even back then,) and that's all I could afford at the time. But, now with emulation, I am starting to like it again, though I would never buy a real one, there is no point. Emulation is perfect. My first computer (bought by my parents,) was a Dragon 32.

  • make sure you recap it with quality Japanese smd caps and do it soon. I bought the EXACT magic pack in perfect box around 2006 and about a year ago I recapped it and the caps had started to leak but it wasn't serious. After recap and cleanup it's perfect again. Even a NOS A1200 is not immune to leaking smd caps, so it's one of the things that must be done to A1200, A600 and A4000 motherboards as soon as possible.

  • The A1200 is a beaut.. I've seen a couple of those packs pop up on fleaBay but I think I'll get lynched if another A1200 turns up at home! Received wisdom, of course, is that it should be recapped even if it works (which I need to take care of on mine). The Speccy is proper nostalgia, though (granted I had a +3, rather than a 128). Memories.

  • I was curious about what software came with the Amiga magic collection (turns out it was the packages Wordworth, Turbocalc, DataStore, Organiser,Print Manager,Photogenics,Personnal Paint, and the games included Whizz and Pinball Mania) - one further thing that I had no idea about is that due to the shortage of amiga specific disk drives, these were fitted with pc drives modified to work with the A1200 - thing is that certain games would not work upon it as if they had non standard disk formats the drive could not read them - found all this out on the site -

After the doofus cat peed on my Tandy keyboard, soaking it right through, I had to completely disassemble for cleaning, and repair the corroded contact pads and a few traces. He's not allowed in my room any more. Just be sure to get as small a bottle or tube as is necessary, because supposedly it does have a shelf life. I haven't had my tube long enough to know if the claims about it's self life are true, but better safe than sorry.
