Yeah, for me, the three big things with a new retro computer (Amiga or otherwise) are:

1) Hook it up to a modern monitor
2) Ability to move files onto and off of it easily (network, usually)
3) Replace spinning media with something a little less likely to fail (i.e. replace phyiscal hard drives with compact flash or sd media)

A lot of it *really* depends on what you want to do with the computer, though.

I’m definitely keeping the internal floppy drive, even though I’ll have some sort of internal storage. The disks and the loading noises are a big part of the nostalgia for me.

Oh, yeah, I mostly was talking about the hard drives (though, on a C64, there's something to be said for finding an alternative to the 1541 if you value your time! lol).
