Retro find: Amiga 2000

My latest retro find is this Amiga 2000 (rev 6). It has 2 disk drives and a CD drive installed (however the CD drive is no longer connected). Still has the original battery, which is not leaking yet! but i won't be waiting too long to replace it before it can do damage.
The A2000 case is in good condition, however a '0' dropped of, so now it says 'Amiga 200' :) and there is a sticker on the side from 'The Simpsons', which is kind of cool and i'll probably leave it on there.
Not too many scratches or yellowing. There is no keyboard anymore, but that is not a big problem.


Included is also a 'BSC Tandem IDE controller', although it isn't really any good. It's main purpose is to control CD drives. Clearly first generation because it has two connectors; one for ATAPI drives and one for Mitsumi drives (remember those?). It is also possible to attach hard drives, but it does not support autobooting, luckily i still have a spare 'Buddha flash' available (which supports autoboot and up to 8 ide devices), combined with a compact flash card this will work perfectly.


Also included is a genuine Commodore monitor, but i won't be using that.
