WinUAE is free and the cheapest way to experience Amiga.

Cheapest way to get a real one is to watch the classifieds such as gumtree here in the UK. I got an A500 for £20 and an A1200 for £100...

My gut feeling is probably about £300 for the TF360 and that'll be the cheapest of the bunch by a long way. I do stress thats...

According to sysinfo I'm only at about 0.55 the speed of a 25mhz 040 so I'd need to hit 100mhz on the 030 to get full speed of a 25mhz 040 making it 4 times faster per clock cycle.
