You won't actually use the Vampire for anything besides data storage. Just use your Amiga for whatever you do with it.

Replace all icons on Workbench and position them pixel-perfect.

Then start over.

1) Install it
2) Play with it for 10 minutes
3) Put it all away back on the shelf.
4) Wait for some other new hardware or firmware revision
5) Goto 1

Whatever you did with your Amiga before but faster Run games/sw you were not able to run before, like lantus360 mentioned, there are some nice ports out there. ScummVM will give you some nice games too if you like that genre. The best usage of course would be to use it to program some new sw for Amiga.

How would the Vampire 500 behave with a Video Toaster in an Amiga 2000?

It might not be useful because the Vampire has no FPU at this point.

throw all your other computers away and start using your Amiga for all your computing needs.

Netsurf for the internet is all you need. What could impress your peers more than turning up to important meetings with an Amiga 500 in tow, using Scala MM300 to perfectly illustrate your new marketing strategies to your area manager. "This guy thinks outside of the box" they will say, and that big promotion you've been hoping for could be closer than you think.

That's an old cell phone with an antenna sticking out the top. Remember, that's an IT hipster...

Gloat in all Amiga forums about how fantastic your benchmark is and your Amiga is the ultimate computer of all times.

Secretly cry while you realize nothing new or interesting is possible with so much power, as you try Doom at a decent framerate and think you have reached the apex of computing.
