    That just goes to show how the Amiga just continues to be enjoyed. Yes you could buy quite a good PC for that money, but it wouldn't be the same, and in another 16 years (A1200 was released in 1992) I bet some A1200's will still be used, whereas I can't imagine that many 16 year old PCs are still in use today.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Nothing wrong with that. I believe some people spend the same on modern PCs which probably won't be used to the same extent as the Amiga.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with spending cash on a hobby. People in general do that all the time. The Amiga is a great hobby that can be fun, creative, challenging and rewarding. While others might enjoy collecting old records or comics, fixing up cars from decades ago, or fill the shelves with porcelain, we get a kick out of modding an Amiga 600, playing old games, programming and so on.
