    I have an ST propped up against a bookcase in my computer room at home. Does that count (sort of)? Apart from not being an Amiga that is!

    Re: Who still owns an Amiga?

    I have an Amiga 1200 - haven't a clue where it is though! Probably in parents attic! My ZX Spectrum 48K+ went to some undeserving relation I think, but my Amiga was my pride and joy.

    No wait... my Atari 2600 went to the undeserving relation - my Spectrum ended up in the bin

    This school still has, and up-until January were still using Acorns! So if anyone needs 30 BBC 'B's, you know where to come!

    Got a BBC B+ which I occasionally dig out and play Elite on. Got a ZX81 in its original box with all the extras that's worth a lot of money as a collectors item.

    Re: Who still owns an Amiga?

    I missed the whole Amiga part.

    I started with the ZX81 with the wobbly 16K Ram Pack.
    Then the rubber keyed Speccy 48k, then the Speccy 128K +2 ( the one with the tape built in) and then I got a Speccy +3 with the 3" Floppy Drive (Double sided discs, and I've just found a box of them in the stores here!!).

    I then went to the Atari ST 512K and upgraded that to 1MB. I loved the computer.

    After that it was a 486 SX25, and on from there.

    Strangely enough the 486 I had came in for repair at the place I was working at. I took it home with me. It still had my mum's address on the box!!
