So did I, christmas 2004 I bought my µA1 with AmigaOS 4.0 Developer Prerelease. Still got it today and it's working fine with a new Noctua CPU fan and 1GB Ram. I wish there was a hacky kinda way to replace gfx ram chips for 128MB or 256MB chips.
But it's still a very nice machine, most stable of the SE, XE, µA1 family.
EDIT: To all of you that has an A1XE with original thermalpad, aluminium heatsink and fan thats louder than Slayer! Change it now! I did that with my XE and went from a CPU temp of 75º celsius to 35º celsius. Copper heatsink with real thermal grease and a Noctua fan will give a silent and much cooler CPU ---> Rock Steady AmigaOS.

I guess only few of us guessed nearly 20 years ago that those NG systems of that days would still be in use today. I mean when I got my Pegasos in 2003 I retired my then 18 years old Frankenamiga 1200PPC/BVIsion/InfinityZII - I felt that such on old machine was just not reliable... My Pegasos is now 19 years old - and still running (albeit a G5 has taken over the everyday job).
The years somehow rushed through in a breeze...
Glad to hear you stil enjoy. Keep us updated!
