Fair warning: high geekery field here!
I am so tempted by those old, cheap Amigas on sale on eBay. I could grab one for a relatively small price, and then get a blast from the past, spend many hours redescovering those games I liked and digging out the programs I wrote, and feel nice and cheerful. The problem is, what’s the point? There are emulators, and after all in my small flat I don’t have so much space.
On the other side, a man’s gotta have his toys, right? Right? And I don’t have a jillion pairs of shoes or a squillion clothes that I won’t wear anymore like Mrs Aruns (sorry love!), so my space usage is irrelevant, relatively speaking. And an Amiga 1200 or a good ole 4000 might still be useful for something, with the right accessories. But all in all it would still be a useless purchase.
Did you ever have this kind of urge for retrocomputing? For buying that old, beloved computer that is connected to many happy memories? If you did it, how did you feel afterwards?
