A1200 Power Tower

Power Tower

At the beginning of 1998, Power Computing released a range of A1200 Tower systems. These were up-specced Amiga 1200`s in specially designed cases. The systems mentioned above were removed from sale, with the exception of the Amiga Bundle One. All Power Towers contain the following items:

  • 200 watt PSU
