I recently found a mint Amiga 500+ and an Amiga 500 .. these are the ones with the rectangular case badges (same style as the A600 and A1200). Also found the second generation.

I am on the prowl for the first generation..but not a tanned or damaged one..

So the one with the original embedded :Commodore: logo on the outside and the :Commodore: key instead of the left Amiga key

So please let me know if you can sort me out here :thumbsup:

I have a mint A500 in storage. It's the first Amiga that I ever owned, purchased back in 1988. I think it may be what you need, but I'll have to check tomorrow.

If none of you find something which fits to nemo's needs, I could probably help out :)

Not sure what gen this is. 2 maybe? But it looks in good condition and has nice gold badge on it :)
Rev 5 board.
Hopefully soon to have a kick 3.1 and a 1mb a gnus for it. Will give the old a gnus and 1.3 with it also.

Case is pretty good, just one row of keys is yellowed, which is bizarre. 4th pic shows the odd row of keys.

Not sure if it's what you're after but thought I'd post it anyway :)

Cool badge ;-) .. but would take it off if i were to get this but there would be some color difference (i'd say).. also the keyboard would be replaced.. which would mean it would become too expensive :unsure:

Looking for a mint or near mint one.. so original grey tone with no yellowing or damages :roll:

No probs, will ask my mate if he still has his A500. Was boxed and put in the attic in 1992, hasn't been used since, so may well be mint. I'm sure he'd sell it if he still has it.

Bad news, just been on MSN with him, most of his amiga stuff is still there, but he can't find his A500 or A3000. May have been lost in the move he did a few years ago.

Slightly better news for me though, he's offered to give me his A4000T and the rest of his kit the next time I make a trip to visit him. Which I'll most likely share most it in the recycle bin with amibay. (Lot's of big box games, zorro cards etc) :grouphug:

lol, i'll be keeping the tower me thinks, but from what I can gather there are other amiga's lurking in his attic along with decent expansions. He used to do a lot of video editing from weddings, music vids etc so should be some good kit. They aren't going to cost me a penny so it's fair to give others help with kit they need.

it would be selfish to jump the gun so I will be on the prowl for your post and hope to be the :ninja: of the day :D
