These would be PAL units with 240v power supplies and UK plugs. They really
are not worth the effort of shipping them to the USA and then making them
work. They are probably not even worth shipping around the country, because
stock A1200s really are still as common as paving slabs, and about as
interesting because you really need an expanded one to do anything much
beyond playing games on it.
I suspect NTSC units with 110v supplies are worth the effort for you, but I
don't know a cheap source of them. The usual USA based company suggested on
the newsgroups is Software Hut (www.softhut.com) which suitably annoys us in
the UK :) I don't see them listing A1200s, but you never know...
