I chose "humm I don`t Know" because i probably would swap my pc for a nice clean fully pimped out miggy...

Loaded amiga's are harder to come by than a pc and i would just build another pc anyway

err this thread is about whether you would Sell/Swap Your PC for an Amiga I think I should have been more specific and said swap ALL your PC`s/Macs for an amiga, but hey

@leytond

think about makeing another thread for you pc<->amiga, this thread is a poll and not a swap meet

EDIT:

might have to do a diffrent poll could you surive with just an Amiga and no PC/mac ?
Amazing what happens after you start thinking about something

All the PCs/ Macs in the house?

It would have to be one hell of an Amiga!

The kind that cooks me breakfast in the morning and was woven from the hair of angels for a start.

Depends what for.

Games - I'd give up ANY PC/X-Plop/PS Shite/whatever, no matter how powerful.

Apps (Internet/playing movies) - I'd rather do these two things on a PC)

However, the Amiga is a far more special machine to me than any PC will ever be.
