@ InTheSand,

You are forgetting the A3000T, A4000T, CDTV and CD32 to complete your collection.  I am almost there with the following:

1 - A1000 (my original w/Spirit Insider 1.5mb RAM & AdIDE)
1 - A1000 (dead gift to be converted to WinUAE PC machine)
1 - A500 w/GVP A530/40mHz 030 & 6882
1 - A500 w/Supra SCSI and 14mHz AdSpeed
1 - A2000 project waiting to be resurrected w/recent 060 card
2 - A3000D's w/WarpEngine 040/40mHz & SCSI-2
1 - A3000D dead eBay (purchased for cards installed) project
1 - A4000D dead eBay (purchased for cards installed) project
1 - A4000D converted to Power Tower w/060 50mHz & PPC 233mHz
1 - A4000D converted to Toaster Oven
1 - A4000T main Toaster machine
1 - A1200 060 w/SCSI-2 64mb RAM
1 - A1200HD Magic Pack Brand New in box turned on once
1 - CDTV
1 - CD32 w/SX-1 purchased from Jim Drew (Emplant/Mac emulator programmer)
1 - CD32 Brand New in box never opened
Amiga Forever/WinUAE installed on every PC and Mac in the house.

I am missing the A3000T and an A600HD.  Once I fix up some of these project machines, maybe I can find someone to trade with so I can complete my collection.  Jeeze, I must be one sick puppy to still have all these old antiques taking up all this space!

P.S. My sister and brother-in-law live in New Zealand and I was just there, all over the North Island in February.  Beautiful place.  We could make a deal and I'll pack an Amiga or two with me on my next visit.   :-D

Greetings, welcome to Amiga.org!

I just traded an A500, I still have an old (but complete) A1000 system here.

@ SamOS39,

No, not rich in any sense of the word (monetarily anyway, currently off work due to injury with no other income coming in and my life savings is disappearing month by month), but I have been steadily collecting since 1987 and have never sold any of my Amigas (yet), so that explains why so many.  I had several of them setup a few years back and taught some local neighbor kids how computers work just for fun for a while.  My intention in keeping several right now is to network them and create a Video Toaster/Flyer render farm with at least 5 nodes of 040 and 060 A2000, A3000s & A4000s.  I have a wireless NIC to setup for the A1200/060 so maybe it will join in the rendering fun too.  If you think my hardware collection is huge, you should see the software collection that goes with it.  I really need to start thinning this collection down to what I want to keep and put the rest on eBay, but for fanatics like me, it is hard to let these items go as most are reminders of many fond memories.

@Amigadave

Ain't that the truth, it's tough to let go of an Amiga.  I have so many now they're flowing out of the closet.  An to think after the Gateway/Amiga/Amino debacles (around '98 of so) I sold a bunch and pared down to just one A4000/060, A3000/060/PPC and an A2000/030. For a long time I hardly used them, checking email every now and then. But about a year ago I got the urge to start using them again and have bought a whole mess of others, fixed a few and treated myself to models I never owned, like the A1200.....even bought a ppc card for it!
