Amiga 4000D & 4000T - What sort of prices?
« on: February 01, 2022, 05:42:29 AM »
Hi. I'm posting here because I'm not quite ready to sell yet. I was wanting to get some opinions of what prices I should expect for these Amigas. (I'm based in Australia)

Amiga 4000D
  2MB
  16MB RAM
  030 model
  Commodore version
  4GB CF HD
  Gotek floppy emu
  CD-RM drive
  Keyboard

It's in full working condition but certainly looks its age. Battery removed. It had leaked but components around the leak have been replaced. It has been recapped.

---

Amiga 4000T
  16MB
  SCSI HD x2 - 140MB all up.
  A3640 CPU board
  Amiga Inc version
  CD-ROM
  Floppy drive
  Keyboard

Immaculate condition. Seriously, the motherboard is pristine. Full working condition.

When Im in the market to add to my collection they are not worth very much at all  :D

4000Ts can fetch a hefty price. If you have one of the very rare commodore ones as opposed to an Escom one they carry a premium.

I saw an ebay listing not long ago for a 4000T (see pic). Its a high end machine with PPC.

I'm located in WA (that's West Australia for the non Australian's reading), and I paid $2000 for an A4000/040 desktop about 2 years ago. Specs same as yours but with 040. For the 030 model you'd probably still get close to $1700 at a guess?

The tower.... name your price, anyone who wants one WILL pay top dollar for it. Fact.

it's a sellers market at the moment.
i'm seeing about $500+ for "untested / sold as seen" Amiga 2000's
about $150+ just for an A2000 keyboard - seems to be a trend. machines getting parted out and sold as bits. saw an A2000 PWR+HDD light cluster on fleabay for $55.
cleaned and kitted out A2000's are going for $1000+ but i have no idea who the heck is buying these machines at these prices. 

A1200's are moving for about $300+ much more if loaded up with an accelerator of some kind.

even some A500's are ticking over at the $300 price range

A4000/030's i've not seen for less than $1000 in recent memory. i saw an A4000 cardboard box for about $170... not even sure it had the original packaging in it.

fully OG A4000 tower you can absolutely name your price. $2000+.
i'd love to get an A4kT back, i'd recognise my old beast in an instant. no way i could ever afford one beyond an accidental unit turning up at a recycling place or a fleamarket these days.

hope the wife never figures out we could clear our mortgage by selling off all my amiga stuff these days ;)

A500 Vampire2/minimegachip/lazarus/indyECS, (+GVP A530,SupraTurbo28,GVP HD8)
A600 Vampire2/604n/subway/IndyECS, (+ACA630)
A1200 Vampire2/subway/IndyAGA, (+Bliz030+scsi)
A1200 Icedrake/indyAGA
A1200 BlizPPCscsi/Bvision/subway
A3k C=040/CV64-3D/Xsurf100+RRoadUSB/Zoram256/acard scsi-ide-CF/IndyECS,

So what's cheaper then? A private Island in the Bahamas or a Amiga 4000T?

Prices do seem to have risen steeply recently. Maybe related to Covid lockdowns? I know my amiga interest picked up last year - I got my 3000T up and running again after c9 years of gathering dust and I got my 3000D and 2000 both working after years of being out of action. Both work fine now and Ive decked the 3000T out with a SCSI2SD and a BigRam Plus, while I installed a SCSI2SD in the 3000D and a gotek in the 2000. The Amiga scene appears more alive than has been in a while with the new re-amiga boards, terrible fire accelerators, vampires etc maybe that's boosting prices?

Thanks for the feedback guys. I've been told by my wife that I'm not allowed to sell my Amiga collection. She knows me well and that I'd probably try to buy them all again in a few years when I'm feeling nostalgic. Too bad too. I really wanted that new Les Paul custom. ;D

 Xamiche,
I have had fleeting moments of selling my A4000T, money would be a good profit, and a vampire may do ok with the A2000 but love of it is strong. It's loaded. Economics now....

Your wife is probably right (as usual?). If I had just one A4000 I'd be torn if I needed to sell it for any reason and would try to buy it back in the future.
A1200 in DIY Tower. 3.2 ROMs, 3.5" HD, CD RW and IDE to SD adapter running off the internal IDE port (using the A4000 4-port IDE adapter from Amigakit), Blizzard 1230-IV, with 32MB 60ns RAM and 50MHz 68882 FPU. 3COM PCMCIA Network card running with Miami DX. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PrGdL6XjmE

Irving Gould had the same dilemma! Was he to save the Amiga and properly launch the A4000T or pay himself larger and larger salaries and hire cronies to play along to feather his nest in the Bahamas.  ::)
