I have gotten the major itch to build an Amiga 1209 and I am aware of the various projects out there that have been attempting to produce various components. I would love to discuss this with other folks who have the same itch.
Unless there is a shortage of A1200 systems, a recapped A1200 should give you years of life. I have a spare keyboard for mine and a spare keyboard membrane to have replacement options for mechanical parts that could wear out and I keep a stock of internal and external drives. I do the same for my recapped A600. That said a fresh new motherboard with fixes is a thing of beauty. I was considering a reproduction A500+ at one point but uncharacteristically I resisted.
