Eh, looking at the pictures the battery damage is very little. It is a
decent candidate for saving. Action needs to be taken quickly but it's in
way better condition than ones I've attempted to work on.
I do see some flaking north in the copper traces of the battery.
I still wonder if osmeone will reproduce Amiga 3000 motherboards where you
can either move over the customs but also has some modern add ons.
As well as a replacement board for the Amiga 600 :-)
At $800 though... not AGA.
