1991 A1500 + GVP HC8+ 52MB + 4MB = 699, 1st Computing (1091.98)
1991 Kickstart Switcher = 35
1991 Action Replay 3 Zorro = (Whatever the stock price was), Silica

2008 NedoPC 8MB A600 RAM = 45, Amiga.org
2008 5 * (IDE->CF + 1GB) = 15 Deal Extreme.com
2009 Deneb = Free : Some Oxsemi USB chips, E3B

Total = 2377.26 (Most of which was spent early on)

Look at how much things cost when converted via RPI to todays prices. I decided not to calculate the adjusted total as it would just upset me.

You'll notice what is absent is hard drives which are all "hand me down", mainly stock 10GB Seagate drives from X-box 1's.

My best "buy" was my A3000 which cost only 80 from Argonaut, and that was for the PicassoIV!

Although my A4000 for free was good too. Swapped for 2*128MB DIMMS which were being thrown away because they had no SPD chips was also good.

My MiniMig and Deneb were also good "buys" too
