Do you have your original receipt/docket/invoice??

I found mine amongst all the Amiga stuff.

My mother spent an absolute fortune on this, at the time she was a single parent too and I managed to convince her I wanted to "do computer stuff". All these years later I actually work in IT so I reckon even though it was a con from me it actually paid off all these years later.

Oh receipts!

Here's mine, this is from 1991. Really puts the price in perspective. To give you an idea, I have included the price of an All in One HP machine today at a large Australian retailer.

I still have the receipt for my A3000T from when I bought it new, along with all the manuals, and shipping cartons I understand !

Huge thanks to your mom for starting your I.T. career!

Looks like the price of the Amiga itself was close to the £399 UK price give or take.

Dont forget the printer, but of course printers these days are pretty much free. It's the ink that costs a fortune

heh, back them the ink was still killer - the Star NX1000 had those 4 color ribbons so you had to replace the whole thing, also nearly impossible to refill.

Probably - I have all receipts what I have bought for my hobbies. The most "valuable" is perhaps the Phase 5 Cyberstorm NG system that never existed. Luckily it was just a pre-order... Well, an A500 tower with Blizzard 2060 + 128 MB and HDD did cost a leg and arm...

HOLY SHIT! It was a COLOUR dot matrix?

FK I didn't get one of those till....well heck I remember getting one but I'm thinking it was during my PC era

We had nice clunky black and white Dot matrix with the Amiga from memory, and continued to use the same one when my Brother purchased an Amstrad Notepad (look that one up which I eventually somehow took ownership of, and my first 386 DX PC too lol.

COLOUR!

Man, Australia. The land of plenty :P

Here's mine. A bit hard to read, contrast is not great between the paper and old ink.
