Do you want a price advice? Seems like it's not that special to own an A500 with serial no 1, so it depends on the 'mintness' of it how much you can expect. Not that an A500 is really worth that much anyway

I will check sticker of my A500 at home. My first A500 have green power light but second one orange (and louder floppy drive). Which one is older and what are the differences?

Selling an Amiga...I did that and I still regret it, you can never have too many Amigas. Do yourself a favor and keep it

Yep not rare. Although this was sold for pretty much http://www.tradera.com/Amiga-500-EXT...tion_108210197 but the condition was good. But i still don't think it justifies that price.

~105 for an A500 is indeed quite Even for one in a *EXTREMELY GOOD CONDITION*

The seller was hinting in the auction that it is a collectors item because of the serial # so that is probably why it was sold for that much... and most people on Tradera is muppets

It looks more to me that they went away from the silver labels to the bar coded labels that are attached next to them; I think the true serial number is the one with the bar code.

The '1' probably signified that it was German built, as other factories may have had a different starting number for the stickers.
