Hello everyone, my name is Alexei and I'm from Chisinau, Moldova (you can google it if you are curious :)).
When I was a university student during mid-90s, I used to hear rumors from guys praising some mysterious, rare (where I live) computer, called "Amiga".
They usually compared it to PCs of the day (practically the only decent machines I was familiar with), dissing PCs and calling them names.

Well, here I am, hoping to finally experience that mystical magical machine firsthand (I'm looking for an Amiga to get) and hopefully teach my son some programming in the process!

-------------------------

Also, I'm not sure where to post it but could please someone help me identify Amiga 2000?
I've read there are several versions of 2000 - with different memory configurations, OCS/ECS(?), etc.
I have these pictures of the unit:

Welcome to Amibay. :)
The only reliable way to identify what you have is to open up the case and have a look. While you're there you'll want some snips to help remove the battery, if the original is in place. These frequently leak and the contents will destroy the board inside.
To identify what board you have, look in the front left hand corner, it will tell you which board revision you have.
You'll also need to have a look at the chips on the motherboard, the Agnus is the video chip, that will tell you if it is ECS or OCS, plus you can check out what Kickstart you have installed. If you intend to expand your 2000, and it is very expandable, that will dictate what you can do with it.
