Amiga 600

September 24, 2008

I have long been wanting to indulge in my retro computing fetish.  This isn’t something I have had the chance to immerse myself in before now.  It all stems from my first every computer, the Sinclair Spectrum +2, which I was given for Christmas at the ripe old age of about 8.

I imagine that this bastion of retro computing was what set me on the road to my much too geeky present self.

Anyway, like I say, I have been wanting to indulge myself again recently with a passion.  (It was either that or Hornby model trains…).  So I spent the last couple of days trawling the depths of eBay for a suitable bargain when I came across a rather cheap, working, and decently attired with extras Amiga 600,  (The not so popular Amiga as I have read).  A Buy It Now push of a button later last night and I am eagerly awaiting delivery.  Now all I need is a soldering iron and I can really get ready to indulge in some serious retro modding.
