Thanks for this thread - happy memories! HAM mode to get all the colours onscreen at once etc.
I started with an A500, then later bought an A1200 with an 80MB
(!) Hard disk. I then upgraded it with a 4MB Blizzard (I think) expansion that also had a faster CPU..
I got it down from the loft last year, and it still managed to get from being switched on to Workbench fully loaded and ready to go in ~10 seconds. How long do our PCs take to boot these days?
I also found some info on networking Amigas - and with a standard laptop PCMCIA card managed to get it hooked up onto my LAN, and then transfer the contents of the hard disk onto my PC (so that I can now have "my" amiga working in WinUAE
All good fun..
