While I voted A4000, I currently have the following:


All are in working order with varying degrees of expansion. The A4K is still used regularly, and is happily housing my CSPPC and CV cards.

! currently have a 2000, 3000, and 3 4000's ( 1 is a 4000T, the other 2 are 4000D converted over to towers which I use as toaster machines). I do have an amiga 1000, but I am not sure if it works. then other machines do work quite well. the A2000 I have had since 88, the 3000 since 93, the 4000T since 97, and the 2 4000D conversions I picked up at an amiga show in ottawa in 01.

Do you know, Im not sure what Amigas I have now

I have an A500 with a A590 HD attached in small bedroom and ive an accellorated A1200 (not sure to what speed, 040, maybe 050) on the bottom shelf of my coffee table the lounge (needs packing away really). And then theres i think an accelerated A1200 with a huge HD under my bed ina box and there might be another A500 there but im not sure...

Why any of us need multiple old computers lying about Ive no idea, but I notice it seems to be common theme in this thread!!!

Add to this old Atari 2600 machines (various of due to buying games on e-bay that were bundled with yet another console), a couple of MSX 64k and sinclair +2 ... might be time for a clear out

Well, currently I think I have about 30 Amiga-500s lying around here ( some not working, though ). Ofcourse I will not keep them all, but I will keep quite a number (all different ones and a few more) simply for reserve to be sure to have at least one working machine left also in many years !
Now is the time you can get them cheap, but what will be in 10 years ?

I think it may have been thrown away by now (or stuffed in a cupboard somwhere) but I had a A500 with externall drive, 1mb upgrade and all sorts of other add ons. Please a CD32 but the CD drive died

I think I stopped using them when the first versions of Fellow were good enough to run all my old games smoothly.

I did as requested, but I didn't think there was that much harm in leaving them. Anyway, the links were gathered awhile back, so they probably changed since I compiled that list.

Cool Not what Amiga you have... HOW MANY do you have..

Surely that poll should be (how many amiga's do you own LOL ), I have three, all initially A12's but Tower'ed or better...

*sorry i couldn`t help it....

primary amiga is a Base A12 with the following

a Z3 Buss board
Prelude 16 bit snd card (clock port version)
!0Mbit Network Card
CV64-3D Graphics
Flicker Fixer
A1260 CPU (was 50Mhz Clocked to 66 *NICE )
64MB FastPage (72Pin EDO 40Ns Memory)
IDE Interface

4GB SeaGate HDD
2GB WesterDigital HDD
CDRW 4x4x16
TruVison 24Bit Scanner
Citizen Swift ABC Printer (Still Works LOL)
17"SVGA Monitor
15 CBM1048 MultiSync
A4000 Keyboard
Original Mouse

And its all wraped up in a very special box....
where i used to work (about 10 years ago) they had an old (pre 1990)
Cat3000 Server..... it was old.... and some what beaten... but these beasties are BIG!!!!!

well lets just say out with the old and in with the new...after a bit of Dremel action.. out goes the Dual 486 SX 25's and gudgins and in with the more important and *USEFULL* components MY AMIGA.....

the other two amiga's i aquired along the way as friends sold them on for PC's or Consoles.... and i ninja'd right on upto 2001 with my Amiga before turning to the dark side and finally building my own PC... (it was unreal torneament that did it...)

(second thing i installed on that PC was an amiga emulator btw LOL)

Funny how life takes you....

I now have a network in the my house of 5 Windoz Pc's 1 Laptop, 1 linux box..... damn i hate PC's... to simple..... lol

anyways..... interesting how the polling showes most had A12's .... mind you..... it was a damn fine computer..... even before upgrading...

anyways.... Got WinUAE .... runnig on this blistering PC i built... its almost as good as my Amiga... (its off line and in the shed... had to dismantle PSU problems... and not enought time.... *3 years ago.....* sad huh.... ) well anyways i have been looking for a decent Amiga Forum from the UK.... so here i am ... Hello fellow Amiganaughts.... look forward to reading your posts soon

- A1200
- blizzard060/50+scsi-kit+32 mo fast.
- MEDIATOR+voodoo3+ethernet100+tv card+spiderII


- A1200+blizzard030/50+scsi-kit.
- action replay for 1200.
- hypercom 3Z for A4000.
- others parts but without importance.

searching after 64 of 128 mo for blizzard060.

I'm using amiga since first A500 1.2 (1986-1987), selling for A500+ in 1992 and buying a micronik A1500 in 1996 (with ZIII). ZIII bus died 2001 and baught a mediator (great product).

without the mediator in 2001, no more amigas, thanks for elbox for that.

Sorry for not participate more in eab but not great english level here for understand and answering often but really great pleasure to read and discover new things about amiga here often.

great. no javascript execution forever with eab 3.5 when answering post and ibrowse 2.3 but big pages are slow for scrolling vertically now with eab3.5 (little comment for informations).

great happy birthday for me this day

Well, yesterday was a big day for me... I finally trashed my trusty old A500+ with harddisk, straight in the bin.... I felt all awkward, as if I threw away a piece of my youth in some way. However, I now have all shiny and empty space available to fill up with new computers

I am however still converting my datadisks with disk2dfi to .adf format.

Trash a Amiga... you out of your mind?

No matter if it does not work, it always can be used to bring life to other Amiga's

hehehe Believe me, this one not... Ever seen the intestins of an A500+ when a cat has puked all over it, monhs before that? You wouldn't want a single part from that machine hehehehe But nevertheless, trashing it did hurt, but oh well... The memories are all still there.

btw, there are still tons of A500's for sale here in the Netherlands for ridiculous low prices through auction sites... I couldn't get rid of the A500 even if I gave money away with it overhere....

Anyway, the pain I felt was just because it was the machine I used for years back then... Like a pair of old shoes that you grow attached to
