Just got my A1000 delivered today. Woohoo!

Price wasn't bad at all on eBay, just the shipping to Canada is a killer. Bought this one without a keyboard, but already had one lying around.

Boots up, everything is original (minus a couple of case screws) and the drive reads everything I've thrown at it so far. Without a doubt, the A1000 is my favourite machine of all. Got my first one in about October of 1984 - before the official release date - lots of "dealer" demos came with it then. I wish all the new machines (FPGA based or PPC, AROS, whatever) would play the A1000's startup tune as a tribute.

There is also a really sweet A3000 on eBay right now too:

Here's an A1000 with a Microbotics 2Mb sidecar for 99.99. The keyboard is missing two key caps, but all in all it's not a bad deal. The seller has a 100% feedback record too. This is only one of several on ebay right now.
The link to this one is:

Actually, all I can seem to find are A1000s, at least on my local Craigslist. There are almost always more than two listings for NTSC A1000s in my area, and nothing else. Also, every person I know with an old Amiga has an A1000. It's almost like it was the most popular Amiga in my town.

I'd like to get my hands on an A500, but I can't find anybody local with one.

Interestingly enough, after months of not a single Amiga listed, there's now two A1000's listed on my local craigslist. People cleaning house to make room for all the new junk they got over the holidays, perhaps?

Default Re: No Amiga 1000s?

I've been casually collecting Amiga gear for I guess a couple of years now and I've found the key at least in my local market seems to be lots of patience. I've only ever bought stuff off my local craigslist, the good thing here is stuff seems to be about 1/4 the price it would go for on ebay. The bad thing is an Amiga probably only pops up about once every 3 months. Though lucky for me it seems like I am pretty much the only local buyer within a populous of 2,000,000 so it hasn't been hard to snag anything I wanted yet.

Now I just gotta learn to resist buying stuff I don't really need dammit ... my basement is getting crowded with Amiga stuff. I thought I had almost everything I wanted but I couldn't stop helping myself to a nice A3000T with Picasso 4, Concierto, ethernet and an 040 that I picked up a few of days ago. I think I'll still look for a nice clean A3000D though. It's gonna be hard to resist more gear though if it comes up for rock bottom prices. I guess I'll hope for an 060 for less than $100 but chances of that are probably about 1% in my lifetime.
