According to my wife i own way too many Amigas  :-)
But im still collecting more, im still searching for an A4000. I use my A3000 daily.

My tip for searching for an A4000 is get one off ebay that's "non-working" or "untested".. Usually the problem with them is that they just need the chip ram or chips reseating.. That's how I originally got mine :) Unfortunately since I got mine it got damp and corroded.. so now I'm A4000 motherboard hunting :)

I own a working A4000 which I paid money for) and a non-working A2000 which I got for free, but was never able to get working.

I was not an Amiga user in its heyday, but my grandfather was. I don't really use the Amiga for much. I played some games and demos on it and I might port my current project to Amiga OS using it, but it largely sits idle.

Well...according to my mother i have "a lot of crap taking place in your (mine) apartment!"

According to my (ex) girfriend, i had "a lot of useless trash, taking a lot of money which could be invested in, for example, more clothes to me (her)"

You can imagine her face when we started dating (about 4 years ago). I would tell her "I have to be with an Amiga (Amiga = female friend in spanish). She would be so so jealous...you cant imagine how funny it was each and every time

Things got a little different when she moved with me.
Every time the Postal Office man would ring my bell, an argument would begin with sayings like "if one machines comes inside this flat, one machine has to go" etc etc etc

It was a "fight", like the Roses film, but at the end, i won!!!


Oh, BTW, forgot to add to my collection all my Power Flyers, 4-Eide adapters and stuff like that, and the Chelsea/Bayern Munchen/ Paris Saint Germain shirts...

Have a lot of funny stories to tell...maybe ni next posts

Time to go to watch 24 now

I have a few..and have sold a few..
Sold a A1000 to a gent in Switzerland... :-)..
Sold 2 A2000HDs to a high school..

but I still have a CD32
and two A4000Ts..
and a A1000 motherboard...
Had an A4000 040 MINT even the battery was MINT..but sold that one :-(
still have pictures of her though :-)

and Im hot on the trail of 50 A1200...will know more this week..
Oh and I had a A1000 in its orig. box and an A500+

this not to mention all the Commodore stuff I have..lol :-)..

I will be honest when I say that NOTHING (electronic) has gotten me more excited than when the AMIGA was released and when I finally got one.
That is 100% the truth..ok the Toaster for Amiga was good2..lol
And I bet that is true for MANY people ..even those who have left the Amiga for obvious reasons..and would die to come to get that same feeling that the creative possiblities were endless.

Well one product has given me a bit of that same creative outlet..and thats my SIgma SD10 and Sd14 digital SLR cameras..That Foveon approach to digital photos..gets me going..hehe..

Sorry for rambling on and on..

Lets not forget ....Andy Warhol was an AMIGA fan!!!..
Oh and you can see the pics I have posted here..

Add another to my list (damn, I couldn't resist), a brand new, never used, absolute mint A1000, boxed with all original packaging materials and paperwork.  Well, I am a collector after all (that is the only excuse I can use to justify the madness).

Also picked up a ............SX32 Pro!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the one item that I had given up on came to me from a new friend that wrote and said he needed a few bucks (thank you very much again).  That will go very nicely with my brand new, never used CD32.

So much for not buying any more hardware.

Oh well, the sickness continues.  Don't bother sending any get well cards.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

Killer !! they can be cured and saved some others !!

Removed all chips (which appeared not to be damaged) + expansion cards (and kept them).  Trust me, the condition they came to me in, they were already dead.  And I payed for them at that.

And, who said I enjoyed doing it?

Since half an hour, I'm left with 1 Amiga, an A4000.

And within a few days, there will be more than 1 again. I bought 2 A500s and a CD32 for practically nothing. Plus some fun expansions.

I've been expanding my other collection somewhat more lately: my consoles. Currently I have a Gameboy, 2 Nintendo 64s, a PSone and a Sega Megadrive.

I forgot to mention my Atari Lynx II and my Super Nintendo. And a Colecovision is on the way :-)

sadly i have seen people throw out high specced Amiga's aswell as other rare/hard to find stuff.

I recall the airport nearby threw out their complete toaster/vlab etc range with the actual Monitors/machines too,sadly not everything was salvaged but most was thanks to someone spotting them throwing it out into the containers.

My brother works in an electro store where they also have a electro press, this squeeze the stuff into square items (1by1 M or so), his house is full of "junk" which works fine and always have but the old owners toss the "junk" out as soon as they see something better in the shop.

the value of a laptop is indeed questionable but i would never say nothanks to a IBM thinkpad laptop with 1gb ram and 80gb hdd aswell as a dvd burner and a 1+ghz cpu.

Or a chipped ps2 with network adapter and harddrive, it even was in the orginal packaging....

I myself threw out a defunkt cd32 some years ago, i regret it but it went by a mistake...but lol there was nothing inside of any value anyways since i repaird my cubo aswell as an cd32 with parts from the broken one.

Whats up with all the hate!

Blimey - my list will be miniscule compared to some on these pages - some of you could open up shops!  Or museums if you don't want to sell your kit :-)

Well, here goes...

Amiga 1200 (Computer Combat pack).
Amiga 1200 Amiga Magic pack (Brand New never opened - still has Power Computers sealing tape on the box).
Amiga 1200 in Eyetech EZ Tower (again brand new as supplied by Eyetech with Amiga Magic pack and PC type keyboard).
Apollo 040 for above.
Amiga 4000 030 unmodified
Amiga 4000 030 with PPC (040) and Picasso IV.
Various add-ons and bits and lots of s/w titles - too many to mention.

I also have a couple of C64's both with 1541's and one of the best games of the time on 5.25" floppy - Loco by Alligator Software (it has a Jean Michelle Jarre tune on it showing SID off very well).  Both my 64's are the original wedge shape - some people call them bull nose.

I used to have a CD32 with SX1 expansion but sold that for some daft reason.

Apart from my other computers, I own a heavily expanded A1200, an only slightly less expanded A2000, and a to be expanded A3000.

All of them in full working order and regularly used. I use my A1200 most, but chances are this will change to the A2000, depending on when my Blizzard 2040 and CV64-3D arrive.

For some reason, I am not able to own any type of computer without adding extra hardware to it... :-)
Life sucks. Then you die. Then they throw mud in your face. Then you get eaten by worms. Be happy it happens in that order... My Amiga 1200

I only have 3, as you can see by my sig, but I have an A1200 in the UK owned and used by my son, but I will talk him into giving it to me one day!

 Also my brother in law has an unused A500 that I keep dropping hints about, one day it will be mine!!! :madashell:

And I have a ZX81 somewhere (boxed with thermal printer), must look for it one day.
