|In reply to Comment 10 (Lando):|
Someone with a low-paying job would get the UK equivalent of an eMachines box, costing a couple hundred pounds for the entire working system (incl monitor, OS and cheapo office suite). A non-Wintel system would be completely out of the question (unless it's something like an ancient candy iMac they got second hand). Face it, an Amiga is just like a Mac - you buy one not because you want a computer, but because you want *that* computer (except that, in a twisted way, getting a Mac or Amiga means that you get *less* computer for your money, if you measure the computer by the choice of software you have for it).
So my advice to geeks living in the lower income brackets - get a cheap Wintel box and run WinUAE. You'll get 90% of the experience and pay 10% of the price.
