I ended up selling it to buy an A500 as it was cheaper to get the memory up to 1MB on the 500 than on the 1000...
Very true I still remember the painful experience of writing out a cheque for my A1000 1mb memory expansion but woooooo 1.5mb at the time.....I was living the dream baby

c'mon ... this story is as real as any mythical creature ...

Just look at the facts:
- he wrote this letter in the end of 1996 when the Amiga era was already over
- he was using an A500 for 2 years, so he became a proud A500 owner even after Commodore went bust
- he is a reader of an Amiga magazine, but is pretending to have no Amiga knowledge at all (what has he done with his A500 in those 2 years?)
- he got an A1000 (probably 10yo USA NTSC model!) at his local second hand shop in UK and the seller didn't care about rated voltage or function of this device but the seller was interested in an A500
- and finally he made ridiculous "speeling" mistakes even the most retarded dyslexic wouldn't make
- and his handwriting doesn't indicate any mental disorder or even the lack of education

So is this story real?
Of course! ... And pigs can fly!

In german magazines u can read similar stuff every year on 1st of April.

btw .. i haven't seen a message like "Please Run Kick Start" on my A1000 models. And i got 5 of them.

Ciao, Rick ...
