RAY rules bigtime, but it also eats our economy I have a few friends that gamble all their money to these cursed machines.

I have been quite fortunat with them, wann last week 200 euros = 220$ from a RAY pokergame.

Come to Finland and start to gamble


it usually takes 10 times more money in than it gives out, double or nothing is quite nice, thats the only way to in a lot !

Don't panic Cody! I think I know who the culprit is... Study the picture more closely and you may see something quite disturbing...

It was Drakes idea to stop off here. He wanted to take a look, I did try to stop him.

This is for my Finnish friends. I was in Finland during january for the Alternative Party in Helsinki. Finland is a bit expensive for me I have to say. Everything was a lot more expensive comparing to Greece. Petrol's price is scandalous (it's less that 80 cents here for the unleaded). Alcohol is too expensive either. However, most modern computers are similarly priced...

Great thread indeed

Amigas here are expensive, most people think they are rare stuff or something and ask some absurd prices for it.

To be quite honest, is rare to find one being sold here really, and when you find it, isn't uncommon to see absurd prices, like US$150 for a bog-standard A500.

If anyone wants to throw away an amiga, please throw it in my garbage. Thank You.

From my understanding Europe used alot more Amiga/Atari ST computers then in the US. Just like the US probably has more mac users (and apple II's I would imagine) then europe does.

The amiga never really caught on in the USA hence you dont see alot of amiga equipment for sale here (except the 1million 2000-3000's with toaster setups that are always on auction on ebay for crazy prices that never sell.

I do remember one shop that sold amiga's (2000 model i think for real work) but nobody I new had one and they were expensive at the time. Generally people used IBM type pc's for gaming starting in the late 80's early 90's. Most of my friends went from c64/128 to PC's (one was an atari 800 user instead of C64 and suffered acordingly from lack of games in the late 80's)

funny thread this one, Cody I think your vicious beast was caught out napping ..

In Australia amiga 500 would go for about $10 (US) to $40. 1200 cost from $70 to $100. These prices are for pretty much stock machines. Wow, things can be really expensive in Greece.. ouch and I thought I had it bad here...

There is curb side garbage collection in my home town, basically people dump old or broken stuff out the front of their homes and council trucks eventually pick it all up. This occurs twice a year and if you are keen and early you can find some great hardware when driving around the streets.

In the last month I've found 5 commodore monitors, 3 c64s (all working), an amiga 2000 (repairable I hope), 3 amiga 500s (2 working), 8 c64 disk drives (all working), 2 amiga disk drives (both working), a shit load of disks cables carts and powersupplies. If this goes on any longer my wife may leave me.

There is so much free stuff about. Its amazing how much money people are willing to spend on ebay.

Just like we will never understand why they need 100 pairs of shoes. I guarantee you loose those computers so she has more room for shoes in the house.

In Sweden basic A1200 seems to be worth 50-100$ nowdays. Basic A500 goes for 25-50$ or cheaper.

I have bought and sold lots of Amiga stuff since 1997, and the prices have been dropping a lot. Sometimes oldschool amigafanboys sell out their huge 060 A1200 setup for like
200-250 dollars. Once I saw a A4000/030 with cybervision643d for 100 dollars, but someone beat me to it :-/

Bought a P5 1230IV for 35 $ recently, for my vanilla A1200 I payed 20 $ for.
