A1000
A2000
A3000
CDTV

I haven't seen live any of them actually.

The others were models that I own/owned, so pretty much used and abused.

I never play much with my 1000, not had it on in months. It's a quirky antique which I hold dear. It's like a military computer with the ceramic chips and over the top case... oh and those signatures... timeless.... If it were a woman I'd feed it grapes every minute of the day

What were sales figures for non-A500 & A1200?

I always wondered how many actually owned the other Amigas (apart from A500 and A1200) - their price put them out of reach of most of us.

Good Q, MF.

I own everything except a 1200, but that's through buying bargains at the right time... Most I've spent on an Amiga was 600 quid for a second hand 3000 in 1994: the cheque for the Tabby graphics tablet driver paid for that

I've only met an A500 - the one I own

when I get rich, I'll probably start hardware collecting because I'm insane like that. Plus, I wanna try 3.9 sometime

You can find retro stuff really cheap at flea market and sometimes you got something for free if someone need to make some space in his house/garage.

There can be only one... A500.

In fact, I wasn't even aware there was something else besides 500, 1000 and 2000 before I picked up my old habbit some months ago..

First time I really played games on the Amiga was a friend's 1000. Bought a 500, and 1200. Friends had a 2000 and 3000. Toyed with a CDTV a few times at a local store (always thought that was a piece of crap, though..).

AND I'm from the US so neener.

Wow - where abouts?

I'm in the northeast - even mention the word Amiga around here... to older tech guys even, and you get blank stares. This is from my boss too - who had a school computer lab full of TRS-80s.

maybe I'm just in the wrong region for this stuff :P

It would be interesting to find sales figures of each model in each country just to see what the proportions of each model were.

Obviously the A500 was the most manufactured Amiga in its various forms. I would then guess it is the A2000, followed by the A1200 and then possibly the A600. I can't imagine the A1000 or A3000 were made in huge quantities compared to the rest. Not sure about the A4000.

As for buying them new. I only purchased an A600, A1200, and CD32 brand new. The rest I got given for free or purchased second-hand. Best buy was my A4000 for 250 in 1996.
