Most people I know have 030/50, but apparently ACA cards are popular too.. they go under 50MHz..

Speaking for myself I booted up my A500 for the first time in 4-5 years last year only to notice that the floppy drive no longer worked. Researching what could be done brought me to buying a HXC floppy emulator and a SCART cable. That was the ultimate A500 for me.

After then lurking this forum for a while I realised that I had wondered what an A1200 would be like for 20 years. I also realised that I'm a grown man with a steady income and a house of my own. I ordered one from UK and less than a year later I've upgraded it with a CF IDE, CF PCMCIA, MicroMys, 64JPX, ACA1232 and finally an Indivision MK2 hooked up to a Benq 5:4 monitor and proper speakers. My next upgrade will be to replace the PSU with a PicoPSU.

The A500 has gone back into storage and I've ended up with a surprisingly expensive hobby that's impossible to explain to anyone in my surrounding

My dear friend, your experience is very similar to mine regarding amigas, the only small difference is that A1200 (i prefer indi mk1 for better visual gaming scrolling experience) is on my house and A500 is on my beach house... yes know one understants my amiga thing :-)
