I must be dreaming things.

Did someone plant a large bar of gold in there? $500 asking price and it already got 3 bidders?

To the original poster...didn't you just sold one brand new unopened Amiga 500 at amibay?

How many of those do you have?

If its never been opened how do we know for sure there is an amiga inside.could be carefully opened , filled with bricks and re-sealed. Pics of the machine would be needed. Oh I see there is pics. Its just a repackaged amiga id say.

I keep hearing those words "Unused" Amiga. Who the hell in their right mind can have an unused Amiga in their house and not use it? It's like having a case of cold "Becks Beer" in your refrigerator and not drinking it. I'm a little weary about paying big money in instances like that.

I bet the damn thing is used. That old "cover it in plastic" routine is the oldest trick in the book. It's a presentation gimmick that throws out the "I'm brand new" illusion.

@Hellraiser: I had two of them. The other one was sold on Amibay to a user in the U.S.
@TheBilgeRat: That remind me... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeQ-wjDH4F4 :-)

Buddies, I am the first owner of them and I have never used these two A500s. No tricks, no fraud, no joke. But yeah, feel free to believe whatever you wish.

Regards.

I aint spending 500 bucks on A500 even if it is made of gold casing and signed by the "father" of Commodore himself and sealed and never opened with it's warranty paper.

Personally, with that money it can go somewhere else better
