Congratulations:-D Unfortunately I'm broke at the moment, so I'm still fishing a cheap 2nd hand Blizzard to run OS4.

That's a nice collection you have there.

I hope I can add the A1-XE to my collection soon too.

A REAL collector would have an A500+,  A1500, stock A3000 and a nice A4000 tower...  :-D

Did you get a system or just a board?

Well the board, 512 MB RAM, and
This SUNTEK tower (http://www.kdh-amiga-shop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=33_156&products_id=639)

And of course the New Amiga Keyboard. (See link above for more info)

Last week I got a 15" TFT screen for 250 Euro.
During May I will get a Baracuda 80 GIG HD and soem ATI GFX board. Undecided yet.

Well no I just do have these Amiga, another A3000 I had, was exchanged for the A4000.

I never wanted the A500 or A1200 not expandable enough.
I need a big box Amiga: all my desktop/tower Amigas are filled up with cards.

As for the CDTV too expensive and now not available anymore.

So I would like to have 5 1/4 " board with a full featured AGA AMIGA from this Italian dealer.

That's no Commodore Amiga

See this page for more infos.
Side car A1060 (http://www.total.net/~hrothgar/museum/A1060/)

The Sidecar A1060 was the first hardware PC card with 8080 to connect to the Zorro I port of the Amiga 1000.
This box has expansion slots for plane PC cards.

Later the sidecar became the A2286 and A2386 cards for the Zorro II slots (A2000/A3000/A4000).
My A4000 has the A2386 card installed.

The sidecar runs plain MS DOS as OS. Well it's mainly to show people what was possible 1985. :-)

Well I never was happy with the A500(+).
The A1500 never appeared in Europe at least not in the shops I visited.
I had 2 A3000: one became the A3000UX when I got my A3000T (which is in daily use since 1992) and the other A3000 was exchanged for my A4000.

As for the A4000T it was too expensive but I would like to have one, but the original one with SCSI-2 and IDE bus. :-D

I just looked at the board and it looks professionally produced.

I can't try it yet as I still have to buy a HD and GFX Card.
As for the HD I would like to have a Seagate Baracuda 80 GIG or 120 GIG.
But for the GFX card I'm still checking the emails in the A1 developers mailing list.
I want to have an ATI card that's for sure but which brand and chip I'm uncertain.

Yes I know but that would be a nice Amiga inside my A3000T or even inside the A1 :-)

I really don't need the draco I have the VLAB SVHS card in my A3000T and iMovie on my IMAC :-) that replaces the DRACO :-)

Mick Tinker yes I remember. Wasn't that Pleasance time during Commodore bankruptcy?
