Commodore Amiga 500 & Deluxe Paint II

The Commodore Amiga 500 was the best computer to ever hit the home micro scene. It was sleek, powerful, immensely popular and the platform of choice for the most talented game developers of the late 80s and early 90s. Classic games that appeared on the Amiga include: Shadow of the Beast, Kick Off II, Populous, First Samurai, Sensible Soccer, Agony, Speedball 2, Lemmings and Another World.

Deluxe Paint, on the other hand, was a bitmap graphics editor developed by Electronic Arts and one of the rare non-gaming killer-apps ever. Want to know why? Check Wikipedia.

Want to get your hands on an Amiga 500 with 1MB RAM, an extra drive and Deluxe Paint 2? Check this Amiga ebay.com auction. Seller ships to US/Canada and paying more than 100$ probably wouldn't be worth it.
