LOL. If they were only £50 then I'd probably buy you one as a gift to make up for some of the nasty things I've said to you ;-)

I'm not going to argue with you there. The first computer I used was an old PET, then I bought (well, my parents did) a VIC-20, then a C-64, a C-128 and then onto the Amigas (2000, 1500, 1200 (x2), CD32, 3000)...

As some people point out, it has The Name and it has OS4 which is a direct upgrade from the classic OS.

What does these days? We see things like Firewire come along which can go on any machine, USB 1.1 to USB 2.0, Graphics cards improving (again, for any machine). What sort of "innovation" are you lookin for? Short of throwing away the whole desktop computer design and replacing it with a chip-in-the-brain machine, we're not going to see any real breathtaking innovations anytime soon for any platform.

> over competition.
LOL. That's true for any computer platform. I hate to think how much I spend in any given 12 months on computer hardware and software.
The fact is, that even though my classic Amigas and WinUAE are good enough to satisfy my "nostalgic cravings", I want to see a modern Amiga OS running on some decent hardware and I'm prepared to support a company that's trying to do this. We should all have a charity to support. Mine is Amiga Inc ;-)
