Awesome read and great to hear the A500 purchase.
My story was similar to yours only i saved up little of the money and borrowed a huge chunk off my dad (which i paid pack with most of first monthly wage off my first job).

I ended up having an A500 with 512k expansion and an A1200 with HD fitted, and tonnes of accessories for both.

I too have now took the plunge back into the Amiga and am the proud owner of an A500, A1200 & CD32.

A500 has 512k expansion, Gotek fitted with the external sitcky out floppy disk extra (looks cool and requires no case modding), Optical USB mouse connected to a Jerry (joystick in other port on Jerry), 2x Zipsticks.

A1200 has 128Mb Blizzard 1230IV, 32Gb CF card partitioned, Indivision board, Optical USB mouse connected to a Jerry (joystick in other port on Jerry), 2x Zipsticks.

CD32 has USB keyboard via converter, Optical USB mouse connected to a Jerry (standard gamepad in other port on Jerry), Competition Pro Gamepad.

All 3 machines are hooked up via HDMI to monitors and also to my PC surround soound setup (5.1).

Everything runs like a dream and i love it!.
