I had an Amiga A500 which I bought in 1989 and used it through to 1996 and then stupidly gave it all away along with a ton of games.
As I'm turning 50 next year, I am experiencing a touch of nostalgia and have spent hours watching youtube clips of Monkey Island, Stunt Car racer, Lemmings, Shadow of the Beast and Kick Off. I am originally from the UK arriving here in 2006 and I am returning home for a visit in December. I have bought an A500 on Ebay over there and will bring it home with me.
My intention is to start from scratch and build up a good working knowledge on the A500 and build greater capacity into the machine, although it seems a bit daunting. I am a also on the look out for a GVP A500 hard drive, if anyone out there knows where to source one.I also had an impulse purchase of a
Commodore-Amiga 500 Compact-Flash-CF-Special-4-GB-Hard-Drive, which requires much more hardware than is in my Amiga which has Kickstart 1.3. so may pass this on when it arrives.
Anyway thanks me, the complete novice.
