From the Amiga 600 to the Amiga 4000, you can find a large collection of different Amiga products on eBay, varying in model, condition, and user customisation.

What Commodore Amiga 1200 upgrades are possible?

The most common Amiga 1200 upgrade is to increase the available amount of ROM by inserting a new chip. Other upgrades can be performed, though; typically by adding external Hardware, such as joysticks. Amiga products and external hardware an be purchased used from eBay and may already have been modified by previous users. If you intend to modify your own Amiga, each product may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions.

How should a Commodore Amiga 1200 be maintained?

The Commodore Amiga 1200 shares many hardware features with other Amiga models. Whilst it does not have an on-board battery, it does have capacitors, which will require maintenance.

What Commodore Amiga 1200 games run smoothly on that model?

As a rule, the Commodore Amiga 1200 offers sufficient graphic capability to run any game released for the Commodore Amiga operating system, although certain games designed for the older ECS chipset may run a little slowly. In this case, the issue lies with the software, rather than the Amiga 1200 itself.

What is different between each Commodore Amiga model?

Since the first Amiga model was released in 1985, these computers have undergone development and improvement. All Amiga computers aimed to prioritise a user-friendly interface and boast strong graphic capabilities and creative software. Each generation, however, differs slightly in terms of available functions.

  • Amiga 500, 600, 1000 and 1200: These are first-generation Amiga models, featuring the older ECS chipset.
  • Amiga 3000: This is a second-generation Amiga model, featuring a more powerful processor and the AGA chipset.
  • Amiga 1200 and 4000: These are third-generation Amiga models, primarily differentiated by graphics and screen resolution improvements.
