Perhaps we should start a thread...

I ordered several stuff years ago and it was always superb and fast.
Only thing: for small parts the P&P costs are pretty high, but you can overcome by ordering more ;)

There is also a small chain of stores in the USA called Computer City I think (LOL).


;-) Upon reflection, I recall that there are many chains here.  One is called "Comp City, USA," and that may be the one that I was thinking of.  

I know one large chain carried the Amiga branded memory stick game packs a while back, and that memory may have colored my thinking.

A bit of necromancing here, but, did Computer City stop? Can't find any article considering this...

Well, I had some good deals with 'em, but the last one, already a year ago, went wrong (thankfully, not a big deal). And the site's not updated for a long time...

I think that Ron, just like a lot of other companies, has more or less had enough about the Amiga scene.

We have arrived at a stage that 1 shop per country isn't possible anymore. It's now a few shops per continent.

Only a few things can help Amiga shops now. Amiga OS 4 and new hardware. Not going to see that happen.

New accelerators for the classics with 68060 processors mounted on them and some other classic hardware. Don't think that will happen either.

We're going downhill again.

Oh, I can understand that. But, why no announcement? Why not just be clear to the former customers? Why not fulfilling the duties towards the customers (either paying back or delivering the order)?
They still owe me 30 euros  :angry:
