The author is that knowlegable guy who was on gameswipe, i'll definately be looking for more of his stuff.

Nice read! Some informative stuff on there like Sony PVM suggestion which I was unaware of! Also pleased to learn I have some of these consoles in the loft... although fitzsteve most likely has all of.the things mentioned!

"I'd go for the Amiga 500+," says journalist and vintage games collector Will Freeman. "...with an easily available, super simple to use bit of software – I use ‘Relokick’ – you can trick your Amiga 500+ into booting up as an Amiga 500, thus letting you play all the additional games."
Surely the 1200 would be a better suggestion with WHDLoad these days?

I've bought "working perfectly" stuff and it basically doesn't - either requiring fixing or a refund or both. At the very least, your investment should look tidy on the outside and be stated as functional, how about asking the seller questions like, do all the ports work, has the battery leaked etc.

Its no surprise that so many of us are / have become handy with soldering irons etc just make our hobby viable.
