Hey... being a big fanatic of the Amiga line of computers, I wasn't sure if anyone else had such an awesome machine. What model do you have? Mine is an Amiga A1200 with 1MB of fastmem.

Yeah... the Amiga demoscene is still thriving to this day. I am actually surprised with all the amazing tricks one can pull on the Amiga hardware. Heck, I will honestly say that the graphics capabilities of an Amiga surpass that of a Sony PSX. Click here for an awesome example of an Amiga demo.

Currently I have none, but I used to have quite a few.

From memory:

    Amiga 500 with an A540 (RF Modulator) and a few more that were stock;
    Amiga 600 with 1.2gb HD;
    Amiga 1200 stock;
    Amiga 2000 that never worked :(


Quite a beast, too bad I never liked the OS, just used them for the games.

I sold my last Amiga 600 to a friend which modded it. Here's the thread with the process: Link

I got every released model of the Commodore Amiga except for the 600 models. They never sold in any useful quanities here, so I am still looking for that one. My personal favorites are the A1200 and A4000. I'll trade a A4000 for any A600+A500 model =P.

I also no longer have any Amigas but have owned several (in chronological order AFAIR)...

A500+ with GVP Impact II HDD (+512KB RAM) and what I suspect was a Commodore 1084S-D1 monitor
A500 (stock)
A600HD (stock)
A1200 (stock)

Loved 'em all, great machines, kinda wish I still had them. Oh well, there's always WinUAE. :)
