Its sitting at the bottom of the bed totally out of use at the moment, 2 19" 8ms Samsung TFTs have taken its place with the main PC (19" TFT same size screen as 21" CRT!") and the Amiga is much better off running through my big ass Trinitron TV!

I just dunno what to do with it

HELLO ALL!

at first.

I got my 1200 these days for 75 Euros.

But for that money I got a blizzard 1230, a dce flickerfixer and OS3.5 too.

And a relatively large HD was also installed.

Nice toy for that money

C.I.A.O.

Since the dawn of my Amiga days in '89, I've probably spent around 30000 norwegian kroner (about 3700 euros, not accounting for inflation here). It's not a whole lot over the course of 17 years, but I was quite poor in my younger days, so upgrades were few and far in between.

Well... when I ran a BBS on my Amiga the costs would dwarf ALL these.

A2000 £750 (good price at time)
GVP SCSI and 40Mb Quantum £750 (ouch)
GVP 28mhz 030 & 8Mb Ram £500 2nd hand (bargain!!)
5x USR HST 16.8 modems at £400 each £2000
2Gb of SCSI Hard Disk - FREE from co-sysop's workplace
A1200 for Games with GVP 030 £300+£200 = £500

Well theres £4500 without starting.. then there was the A500 before it all...

hmmh....with the first A500 for 1000 DM in early 80's I guess I have spent until today more than 30000 Euros on my AMIGA collection (thinking of the 3000 original games I have)...

huge amount now that I think of it...

and perhaps I have spent the same amount on my 3 old MERCEDES oldtimers (W108 280SE '75)

Can't really remember the exact price tag during my Amiga life but I was one of the few that shelled out £550 GBP for the PPC 060/50 card + £200 for the BVision gfx card. Roughly gives you an idea of what I spent on the rest of the system. Eeeek!

I hope I never again have to endure the overwhelming stress that I felt trying to 'prize' £550 worth of acclerator card into a BUSY tower system with a screwdriver!
