It's very understandable that people throw away Amigas and other systems, they just don't have any interest and need for it anymore. And who would thought that Amiga was worth a lot? The first that comes to mind is: useless, no performance etc etc...
I wouldn't (but I know though, because I checked the Internet - and here I am).
Agree wholeheartedly - if it's not of interest anymore, it must sometimes be just thrown on the scrap heap. I'm not really a technology collector, but in this day and age it should be at least worth a try to get a buck for it on some auction site and make someone happy. Whether it's a VHS machine, perfectly good radio, yesterday's 300 GB harddisk, it feels like a shame to not let someone have a chance at it. But I know some people who think wrapping a parcel and dump it at the post office is an onerous chore.
