Wow, talk about professional, the amiga 3000T must be professional, as well as many other models of amiga.  I recently acquired an A3000T amiga.  I did so because of a lady that came to the computer store that I worked at and she sold it to me as is for $50 (long story).  Our store used to deal Amigas back in the late 80s-early 90s.  In fact my boss told me he was one of the distributors that got sent a letter asking him if he would like to place a bid for Commodore in 1994 when it went bankrupt.  Anyway, his wife/my other boss, worked at a nuclear power plant near this area for a while and she told me, when she saw the machine, that those were the computers that ran the programs for the actual nuclear reactors.  now talk about professional.  I was thinking about this and then it occured to me, who would want M$ software to run a nuclear reactor?  They wanted a machine that wouldn't crash or generally f*ck up to run these dangerous machines and I for one feel quite proud that they chose Amiga.  Whether it was A3000s or A500s, that says a lot about our beloved Amiga.

ummmmmmmmmmmmm, no you're wrong.

M$ only make software for low-end users like us...
Now they manage to sell it so cheaply because it has millions upon millions of errors and bugs. Now we all know this, becuase the computer crashes... For comanies like banks, or airports or nuclear reactors, "proffesional software companies" come in. IBM is the second largest software retailer after M$. So although i agree yes that Amiga was and is a fantastic and stable machine, part of the stability was up to the software person...

Like for euphanesia machines (did i spell that right?) you're not going to trust your life in a M$ program, that will crash half-way while it's injecting the toxin, you're going to get the proffesionals in. (actualy that's a little different, cause other companies make programs for hardware specific things...)

well, that cleared up a few things... now i want to sell some half-eaten chocolate...

Well why not change the name of the forum to 'Amiga for sale sightings' rather than having ebay in the title because then there's no bias? :-D

Hoya!

@Redrumloa

Too bad! :-( You were one of the GREATEST Amiga sellers on the planet!
Yes, I know, I have never bought something from you but I DO think it anyway.

Be funky

I agree on the eBay thing, its not ebay, or linked really as such, so another name would be a good idea
Religion is for people who believe in hell.
Spirituality is for people who have been there.

Wow, old thread brought back to life. I thought Red
was back for a second there.

Wish I was closer to Australia.
But I'm not, I'm sure someone will
be happy to pick them up soon though.
