Amigans! REAL HARDWARE or EMULATION?

Which do you mostly use? I'm trying to get an idea of how you use Amiga from day to day. Please answer simply and concisely.

Real Hardware. A1200 with a 1260@50 and Radeon 9250 in a Tower is my main source of Amiga use. Only really use Emulation to take advantage of DamienD's amazing collection

I have Real Hardware that I have not used for 20 years: two A500, two A600 (one HD), A1200/HD/030, A4000/060 (it does not start), two CD32 (one SX32).

At the moment i use only WinUAE where i have all the Amiga model with a Click without having englobed in my room and without having to worry about hardware repairs.

Real hardware (A1200) up to Jan 2015 when it failed badly. Emulation since.

Emulation, no hardware. I don't see the point now, and don't have the room.

Real hardware only, i have expanded A3000 and A4000 setups.

Honestly, the only reason why is because i already have had it for years.

If i didn't already have the hardware i would just use WinUAE instead.

Emulation these days has excellent compatibility (thanks Toni).

Having said that, I'm never satisfied until I see something running on the real thing too.

Cheers,

Real hardware. WinUAE is for stuff that won't run on the hardware and utilities that are more useful being external to my amiga

Real 1200 for games (using a PSX pad) and emulation for programming or quick testing of adfs.

Emulation and FPGA. Don't have the money, time and soldering skills to maintain real hardware.
