    I bought my first amiga while I was Stationed At Baumholder, Germany with the US Army. I bought it from the Post electronics store, it took me about 4 months to save enough to put it on layaway and about 3 more months to pay it off and bring it home.

    Did it have a German or US/UK keyboard? Germany definitely was one of the most popular countries for the Amiga.

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

    It was sort of half and half. I'd managed to save about 80 pounds (Irish) myself over the course of a year, and as school started, we'd organized a class trip to London. Cost for the trip was 100, which my dad didn't think was worth it. After much complaining and whining, we took my 80 into Maddens TV and Video in Cork, put that down as a deposit on an A500 Batman Pack which my dad bought on HP.

    Wow. That was 22 years ago, I think.

    Considering the times I went to London afterwards and hated it (!!) I think I got the better end of that deal!

    Back in 1987, I had a Triumph Acclaim for sale. The young lad (18) who came to look at it was driving a Vauxhall Marina at the time and he tried getting 500 off my asking price. We never did a deal on the Triumph & I ended up buying an A500 off him with loads of games for 400 less than a week after he came to look at the car. We are still very good friends today and all for the love of Amiga.

    I bought my first Amiga, an A500 on 2005. I had a buy add on a local Usenet group. Paid 20 € for it and got an external floppy drive, two joysticks, RGB cable and box of games with it.

    Bought mine in the end of 1989, as a personal Christmas gift. Had to sell my pc (lol) but in the end I have A500 plus external drive. Paid around US$1000 for this setup!
