Amiga 3000 For Auction (sealed-bid)

For auction is an Amiga 3000 in excellent condition, both functionally and physically. Other than the very slight yellowing of the front face and one barely visible scrape, it is almost perfect.

It is extremely clean inside as well. The on-board battery has not yet been removed but it should be soon as it has begun to outgas and affect the surrounding components. I cleaned up the minimal oxidation it had caused on some of the various components local to it. The capacitors have no visible age-related issues.

The system boots up into Amiga WorkBench 3.1 and has numerous applications and drivers installed. Video output is from the GVP EGS (works with SVGA monitor) board, which plugs into the on-board video port (via external connector cable).
