2 x Amiga 500 and LOTS of disks and collection of boxed games.

Hello all

As per the title. Unfortunately due to problems with storage I must let these items go to a good home. Both Amigas run perfectly well and have additional 0.5Mb upgrades (in trap door slot).

Both come with power supply and the modulator to connect to TV.

I'm not sure on what to price these at so will be guided by the lovely people in EAB!

I prefer to sell as 2 separate sales for each Amiga but with a collection of games in each.

Please find attached pics for more info. Unfortunately I didn't take the other Amiga out as it was underneath the one displayed.

Kind regards,
Lesta

Ideally want to sell as a whole unit.

One of these had red light instead of green if I recall and this is due to older revision of board? The A500 itself ran without problems.

i had one years ago,thats all really

its only special to me.

i wanted it for a project to build that very same machine based around that motherboard including addons i had all those years ago,it means something to me,like the c64 and 1541.
i had an older one years before but this one ment something more to me because of what i put in it and i had more memorys of that revision than the 5.basicly it was the first amiga i started upgrading.
the revision 5 before that was more or less bog standard with just the added 512kb card in the trapdoor.

Fat Agnus 8372A (instead of 8370 for NTSC or 8371 for PAL) supports 1 MB Chip RAM; - Agnus is rotated 90° counter clockwise (For system speed increase with addressing wait states) ; 512 kB Chip RAM on motherboard as 4 chips instead of 16 ( Higher density chips for better speed addressing & less system resources to manage); Empty places for other 4 chips giving 1 MB RAM on the motherboard.

Basically the best of the 1.3 Based A500's. Nuff said.

That would be a shame. Maybe leave it run a few weeks into November before the eBay jump.
