Swap/Wanted : 8bit atari machine
« on: May 14, 2009, 12:52:10 PM »
I would really like a 8bit atari. Preferably with tape and/or disk drive and some games to get me started. Would purchase a SD card adapter in the future.

Would like to swap it for one of the following machines...

BBC Model B (Can supply any extra ROMs you require)
Atari 520STfm
Apple iMac G3 450mhz
Acorn A4000
Amiga 500
Acorn Risc PC600
Olivetti M380/C 386 PC

Let me know if anything interests you.

Not interested in a swap but I can do the following:
Boxed 800XL, retrobright treated, fully socketed motherboard,s-video mod, new RAM,PSU , Ariel lead and one Joystick (cant provide an s-video cable at the moment)
With boxed XC12 cassette Recorder and 10 cassette games £35
or
With Boxed 1050, Retrobright treated and 10 discs (I will make some Menu discs if there are any particular games that you want)£50
NB the drive reads perfectly but I can't get it to write >:(

+ postage or collect

Done some thinking, sorry but not interested in any of your trades, an Amiga A600 or at a push a 500+ may work though

I can do a 500+, psu, modulator, mouse and a box full of 720k floppies (will need formatting as they are for a ST at the moment). I will test the 500+ if you are interested.

I do have a 600, but think the IDE interface has died. Think a capacitor may have popped.

Or a Acorn RiscPC 600?

Not trying to be awkward, I am doing my research on the fly as I have never used an Amiga and know almost nothing about them. I think the model that I am really looking for is the A600 as it has internal HDD which would make using it much easier.
I'm guessing that yours does not have a working HDD as the interface has died

Not all of the 600s had HDs in them, the model you want is the 600HD.
You can put a HD in the 600 or the 1200 though - to get it in properly they need to be 2.5" IDE - although you can shoehorn a 3.5" in the 1200 at least. Other than that get a IDE>CF interface and put that inside.

This is badged as a 600 so was sold without a hard disk. I did have a disk in it until the cap popped with a puff of smoke! I now have my 1200HD, so no longer use the 600.
