Be careful that old Amigas equipped with PPC processors [A very complete system] has been sold as rarities, and receive quotations of prices of more than 3000 euro in Ebay Auctions...  o_o  o_o  o_o

If you own a second hand A1200 or A4000 (they cost just 25 to 50, 75 euro, and upto 100 Euro only) you must pay attention that an accelerated PPC card for these old jewels could be sold at more than 800 Euro... o_o

Definitively these are not items to be purchased by anyone but only by very hobby fanatics, or people collecting rarities sold at ANY PRICE...  ;026
