When I see A1200s for sale, they are easily sold for well over $100, and
last I looked, they tended to be more like $200.  Remeber, they were
never as common here as they were there.  PSU issues would be easy to
over come.  I'm not quite as sure about PAL issues, but a scan doubler
and VGA adapter should be an easy workaround.
