Looking for any RAM or hard drive for my A1000 or A500 that are reasonably priced. I mainly want to use these for audio/music lo-fi stuff and games. Would especially love to get Zorro expansions for my A1000 as it's in better shape than the 500 but would also like to get my 500 past it's current 1MB RAM and possibly HD for storing stuff. A Starboard or similar for the A1000 or any side expansion for the 500. I'm in the US, Texas to be exact. Please help me out. I have loved Amigas since my childhood in the 80s and bought these 2 in the late 90s but barely used them as upgrades were always too expensive. I am a vintage computer lover in general and have some vintage Macs also.

I was looking at this for sure. I wonder if a version for A1000 could be made? I would be interested in them for both of my machines. I am going to keep watching this and maybe message him soon about it. I wonder how hard it will be getting them to work. I think my 500 has both 1.3 and 3.1 ROMs.

@AmiG: There's no reason why that adapter won't work on your A1000! It only plugs vice-versa, meaning front goes aft! :)

Oh, that's right. I forgot about them being backwards and this one would fit fine without a case on it I suppose.

Hi! I'm selling a SupraRAM expansion for the Amiga 500 in this thread. It has 2MB installed right now, but can be filled out with a full 8MB of fast RAM if you dig up the appropriate chips.

I would've posted here earlier but I had to check with the former interested buyer and make sure he was okay with my offering it to you.

I have an Amiga 1000 Ram expansion that I might be prepared to part with.

Could still use upgrades for the 1000 and maybe HD for both but I'm in no hurry. Need things to keep me and my Migs busy ya know.
