I saw this the other day on Amibay. Now there's a hunk of metal for your A1000! I'd normally be all over this, but the state it's in and cost are too prohibitive right now

Open to trading?

These were trouble from the day they were released. I think they started out life as "non working"

Close - that is a Turbo Amiga Box, not Tower. I used to have one of the Tower units.

I think this is just a bit weird. And I never knew about it either. I think; Bigfoot, Stonehenge, oh yeah and the freaky A1000 Tower. That said pretty cool they included a power outlet to hook up your favorite lamp and toaster.

Yes. The one I had came from WordPerfect in Utah. It was apparently one of the systems they used to develop WordPerfect for the Amiga. That tower still in the area.

I saw one at (I believe) a WAC meeting back in 1988. It was really expensive back then!
I just found a review on the tower version in Amazing Computing Volume 2, #7.
Wish I could afford one today...

Here's a picture of the box and the tower plugged into the side of an A1000

I had a few interested parties. However, the deals did not go through so it is back up for sale for $300+shipping and it is the Cube not the tower.

Since no takes since June, when I posted it, I am working on fixing it up. Probably, keep it since I am spending so much time fixing it.
