I take it you acquired your first Amiga in 1986 like I did... I now own about 30 complete systems, including 4 A4000's and never owned anything else. I spent an incredible amount of money in the early days and in recent years had a field day picking up stuff for bugger all *heh* about time ,)
I will buy the top of the line A1 system and probably a Pegasos II system too... and I cd've give one toss about the future of the hardware and software... even as things stand today it'll do more than enough to justify the lousy low price...
Remember the days when one freaking Amiga board cost more than the entire A1 system...
The Amiga isn't a cpu as much as it is a lifestyle...
I got my A1000 on the 1st October, 1985, one of the first batch to arrive in the U.K.
atm I have 3 amiga's, A1, A4k and an A1200 somewhere. I remember paying £220 for an external floppy drive, £400+ for a 1081, and a vast amount for the 256k ram pack for my A1000. Even in the 90's it was £500 for a 105Mb scsi harddrive and IVS Trumpcard for the 2000 I had then, £800 for an 040/28 accelerator, £350 for P-IV + paloma, around £500 for my 060
Long live the Amiga lifestyle
