Commodore Amiga 500 NiB

The Commodore Amiga 500 is much more than the ultimate 16-bit gaming machine: it's usually cheap to grab and collect for. Apparently though it can also turn out to be a pretty pricey investment (yeah, right) too, as this fantastic Amiga 500 auction should emphatically prove. It is after all the original Amiga 500; unopened, unused, practically new in its complete box. Everything seems to be in brilliant condition and the seller ships only within the US.

  2. So fucking tempted. WinUAE is so dialed-in now it is hard for me to justify running real hardware anymore.

  4. @ Daniel: Still the physical reality of the real hardware cannot be beaten. Sad, but true.

    @ Bob: Exactly. Well, the wages have gone down and social security is crumbling, but, well, uhm...
