Ntsc cbm a4000t

How many known owners of a C= label A4000T sold in North or South America are there today? It seems like an uncertain 100~250 units were made, with less than a dozen surviving this long.

Interesting data like the prices they've sold for, places they've been found, anything is okay too. I don't follow the scene to be up to date on systems dug out of old attics or wherever.

bitman has been trying to track these over at the Big Book of Amiga Hardware forum. As you can see, only the whereabouts of a small number are definitively known. But I suspect there are a handful of others in active use in the community whose owners haven't submitted them to that list.

I worked for a dealer in Atlanta and I know we sold at least half a dozen. I think they were mostly quickpak though. At least a few were probably Commodore, but it's been many years and I have no documentation.

They were all sold as Video Toaster systems.

No such thing as a South American market, so you can stop looking there.
The very few Amigas that were down there were imported by individuals or small computer stores.
(Also a lot of South America uses PAL, not NTSC).

Amiga was a luxury item reserved for few, usually professional environments, which soon changed to or directly embraced the much cheaper PC alternatives.

Oh thanks for the heads up. I try not to remember the ever-so-slow feeling dark times as PCs swallowed everyone. Capped off by how rough a transition Windows 95 was for us who found Windows 3X elegant.
