I picked up a Commodore 1084S monitor today that I intend to use with some consoles. Non HD signals look so much better on non HD CRT screens and the compact size of the 1084 is almost like having a portable arcade if combined with for example the Sega Saturn.

Anyway, for the price of the 1084 monitor I got an Atari STf 1040 thrown in the deal. I have actually been wanting to add an Atari ST to the collection for some time because there are quite a lot of really good ST tunes floating around the net.

I have covered some MacroSystem products here before, IIRC it was the Toccata which I presented. This time it is the VLab card that gets its spotlight today. No need to mention but MacroSystem was a company of higha qualiti which is still around in some way or another. Probably most famous for their high end cards and the Draco Amiga clone they where into video editing and such things that ordinary double floppy dudes with an A500 did not care about.

Last year I restored a broken Amiga 3000. Some chips on the motherboard where broken and I was lucky to find someone on the net who sold replacement chips. After that Amiga was repaired I sold it off and it felt great to be able to blow some life into a system that could have ended up on the scrap heap.

I got an offer to buy this A3000 today which I could not refuse.
