I have have been using an Amiga for approx. 25 years now. My first was an A2000 with a XT bridgeboard. That Computer served me well through the remainder of my high school years as well as through my university career. In my final year of university I did get an A4000T. Since then I have number of Amigas some working some needing repair, but they get used almost daily.

Old timer? Cheeky git!

First computer was an ICL 2903 Mini Mac, and if you youngsters think cassette loading was slow, try punched tape and a 110baud acoustic coupler. First home computer was a PET. First I owned was a Video Genie around 1981, a C64 in 1984. Saw the A1000 review in PCW magazine (still have the mag) and was blown away.

Bought an A500 in late 1987, traded it in for a B2000 in 1989, adding boards galore until I got an A4000 in 1996. Ended up with two A4Ks, two A1200s, all expanded. Sold the B2000 around 2005, and the others in 2007.

Old timer my backside, why I remember whence had to ask the operator for an outside line, and used rotary telephone and .. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Was an Amstrad CPC user for years 1990 - 94, loved it was the first person to hand in a word processed as opposed to hand written essay at uni done on a CPC and a Mannesman Tally printer, and it was met with suspicion!

Then my Dad brought home an A1200 from work and it blew me away, used it for word processing and Pascal assignments at uni, but got a copy of UFO Enemy Unknown and oh dear had to stay in the Lab at uni using Macs or no work got done at home.

Have just recently got another A1200 after a 20 year gap, to be continued....

Nice deal mate. They're going for much more here in Australia. Lucky you
