1 x A500 (working)

Did have 9 at one point but only used the one and needed the space sadly. Had fun cleaning them up though

I have all models except CDTV, A3000D/T and A1000. :-)

But I only use three Amigas:
My a2000 (with 68060/Cybervision) for ECS and OS3.0 programs
My CD32 for AGA games
My A4000T PPC with Os4.1 for surf the web with OWB MUI.

My little big treasure: An unused A500 in its original box. :-P

Got A600 in Feb 2010, and an A500+ in March this year, unfortunately my A600's RCA video port failed last month, so i use a A520 Modulator to run it through my TV now, and my A500+ has a broken floppy drive, other than that they both work ok.

2* A1200 towered (1 micronik and 1 Power tower)
1* A600 Towered
3* A600 Desktop
4* A1200 Desktop
1*A500 my baby! First Amiga I got.

Al working perfectly except the A500 whose parallel port and Enter button do not work.

For many years my Micronik towered amiga has been my pride and joy, witht he Picasso4 and blizzard 1260 in it, and it really was a workhorse back in the day. Imagine and Vista Pro 3 would work all night and all day rendering my animations.

I decided to get desktop machines so I could mod them in different ways. I always liked the size of the A600 and when Jens produced the accelorator cards I got the 30Mhz version with 64mb ram, it flew.

One of my modded A1200s now has a cdrom, 2 flash cards, Indivision AGA and a Blizzard 1260. I love it.

I'd have to say it's probably so when they die, they've still get spares. There may come a time when these things start to run two or three hundred quid and maybe just stocking up for the future.

But yeah, I'm with you-- Share the love!

Exactly what I mean, mate. We need to make Amigas affordable for more people to get into this never-ending money spending tunnel!

What i don't understand:

eBay US: 3 x A500
eBay UK: 45 x A500
eBay Germany: 43 x A500

Why so less machines on eBay US - the motherland of the Amiga?

The Amiga was more popular in Europe, and Americans used big box Amiga's for more serious stuff, rather than the A500 etc.

The ST and Amiga were more popular in Europe, just like old Macs were more popular here in the US.

People seemed to jump from the Atari 800 or C64 (mostly the C64) to DOS gaming on a x86 PC (or consoles like the NES, SEGA) then going to the 16 bit ST and Amigas in the US.

And yes, I think the 2000 was most popular here for real work then a 500/1200. By the time the 3000/4000 came around few people wanted one (except for toaster users). People who wanted to do graphics and AV tended to use Macs, which were much more expensive in Europe then the US.

It's really strange because in the US are living more than 300 million people (Germany only 80M, UK 60M).

But i see also not many demo/cracking groupes from the US...
