For the most part, Ive always thought we dabbled with all kinds of Amigas for the fun/intrest of it, regardless of the "sanity" of it.
Lately Ive wasted 2-300 euros on parts for my A1200, not to mention the long hours messing about getting to know WorkBench again.
Most people I know in reallife would think I was completely bonkers if they knew.
Ill tell you what, I can practically guarantee you that after 5-6 years...any A4000 (or other high end Amiga) is worth more (ie has better resell value) than any high end Wintel PC you can buy. So "wasting money" is a relative term.. Unless you earn something back by using it, you're "wasting money" right?
