Hi !

Greetings from The Netherlands. I

When i was still innocent, back in 1991, i bought my first amiga with some help from my parents.
An A500 plus with a KCS PowerPC board, A590 with 100mb harddisk and the 1084s monitor.
Later i even bought the a570 cdrom.
Mostly used it for playing games, BBS stuff and some Wordperfect stuff under DOS. Until i bought a Pentium90 around 1995/1996.
Still played sensible soccer with friends until late 90's.

Unfortunately i seem to have lost my power supplies during a move to a new house and with no market for amiga around 2001 i just threw everything away.
Over the years i did dabble with some emulators... until a friend told me about his a1200 and a2000. So the search for an amiga started again..

My first amiga in 2023 was an a1200 and 1084s monitor and put a pistorm32 in with Pi4.
After that purchase I seem to have fallen into the rabbit hole... especially because i got some great deals on some other systems
:check: A500 OG chicken lips
:check: A500-plus with kcs powerpc board+, A590
:check: A2000 rev 6.3 with GVP G-Force 030/16MB with Bluescsi2, ZorroLAN+IDE
:check: A600 rev 1.1 with PiggyBackNotv3 and a gotek with external display.
:check: A1200 with Microbotics 1230XA/128MB.
:check: A600 rev 1.5

I found the A500-plus in an AT-tower, very poorly done.. ducttape everywhere to prevent electrical shorts. :cry:
So i've ordered a new black case from a1200.net for it.. hoping to finish that build. Already have the keycaps new in box.
The only ones really done are the A500 rev3, an a600, a1200 w/1230xa
The rest are projects requiring some goteks, rgb2hdmi, etc... and hoping


Unfortunately 3000s/4000s are way to expensive and pretty rare around here
