Well, I didn't quite expect this discussion to prop up in this thread.

I didn't realise anyone could feel my post was rude.  Oh well, I'm not bothered.

@Jimeh, if you haven't bought any Amiga gear recently, then you may not be aware that it can still fetch a price out of proportion to its vintage, simply because there are enough people who still like to use it.  It's a market, albeit a small one.  If the gear were currently manufactured, then your argument would certainly make a lot of sense to me.  Having said that, I'm not trying to get the highest possible price for my gear.

I'm in no hurry to sell my gear, and I'm also not looking to make a profit.  However, I don't have much time to conduct a sale either, so would really like it if there is someone in Perth who is interested, and can come and pick it up from my house.

I was thinking around $AU100.00 for the lot would be good.  If it's worth that much to someone in Perth, great.  But hey, all offers are considered.  If someone really wants me to post a component elsewhere, I would consider it, but nothing that's going to take me a lot of time.

Thanks for reading, and I hope someone is interested.

Currently writing this on a XP3400 mate. Sure, not the latest but I'm not stupid enough to buy a new PC every three months.

Apparently you don't understand the fact that we use Amigas for the FUN that it gives us. Not because we think they are way better than modern x86 machines. Using an Amiga is just like owning a classic car. It's not as fast as a new car, not as safe as a new car, spare parts are expensive, it breaks down more often sometimes and you need to have quite some knowledge to keep it running, but it's far more FUN than just driving a brand new boring Toyota Corolla..

So when you come in, laughing at the Amiga and thinking you can have one for free, we shove you back to your little pc corner to think again.

@ jimeh

So we're proof that owning an Amiga doesn't make one cool? I never said I was cool but you being all OLSCHOOL makes you sure sound very cool!

You're obviously easily offended. That was never my intention. Like I said I'm just curious. You're here because you just want to play one game and brag about your PC? That precious PC that can't play TotalChaos to you liking so that you may need to buy the real thing? Then it all boils down to one thing; if the Amiga is LOVE to you, how much are you prepared to pay?

Oh and saying all Amiga users are going nowhere; that's really oldschool 90's BS. Where did you get the impression the only computer I have is an Amiga?

The best part though in your post is about us being too cheap to upgrade. You just offered peanuts for an Amiga (LOVE remember?) and we are cheap? HAHAHAHA LOL :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I can go to work now with a smile, thanks!

Do you have any idea how a market economy works?

I still don't quite know how my post came accross as rude.  Maybe the subject line made the impression that I was giving my gear away?  Probably a bad choice of words on my part.

Anyway, the buyer seems happy with the price, and I'm happy, so I guess that's all that counts in the end.  I'll give him a chance for a demo prior to buying the gear, and we'll take it from there.

As for the whole Amiga market thing, the only way these machines would be worth peanuts, is if no one wanted them.  In that case, sites like this probably wouldn't exist, and machines would be thrown away.  Really, the inflated market is a sign of the main positive aspect to the Amiga: it still has a following.  So, always a tradeoff somewhere.

Most likely I'll still be visiting this forum, even when I'm Amigaless.  I still like the machines, and I like the community here too.

Cheers guys.

No, sorry Oliver, you misunderstand.

I mean MY post was rude offering you next to nothing for your extensive and well loved collection of Amiga hardware. Still, no harm in offering the kit a new, loving home, i say! =)

What did you end up getting for it, just to give me a better picture of the 'market', if you don't mind me asking?

Take it easy man.

@rest of ya

I am easily offended by flamers. No one needed to reply to my query but oliver. I offered an option better than the bin.

Why even bother posting in here if you're not making a bid/offer?

My guess was that you're bored and in need of entertainment - thats why I replied at all, against better judgment, as i said. And I'm happily proven right by that smile on your face heading to work.
