For Sale: AmigaOne X5000 System (pickup only California USA) - X5K

Decided it is time for me to sell my last remaining Amiga-based product and therefore I am putting my AmigaOne X5000 up for sale.

Checked with various dealer's websites and no one seems to be selling them anymore so figure someone may want to buy a good used one.

Could not get the classified here to work so posting here in the forums if that is OK.

Here is a video I made in 2019 and most of what I have remains the same with small changes that can be shown in a new video for the buyer or can be seen at pickup time.

Sorry folks, local pick up only so the nearer you are to Northern California, the better. Not interested in shipping as shippers are way to harsh on big expensive computers these days. I know that will limit the buyers, if there are any, but such is life. And no, will not sell board only unless you want to pay the same full price as I will not sell at discount. Prefer to sell as a complete working system.

If you are interested, send me a PM and we can go from there. The video will tell you a bit but I can cover more via a good old fashion phone call too.

$2250 mostly as you see in the video. Even have the original Thermaltake box still so you will get that. Mouse and keyboard and all that you use your own. This will be for the computer itself with a power cord and software that came with my X5K as purchased from Amiga on the Lake.

Video that shows the AmigaOne X5K that I am selling.

Just time for me to leave the Amiga platform as I have other interests that bring me more pleasure.

Nice video showing off your X5000. The Amiga scene does get a little soap opera sometimes and it can affect how people feel about it.

You sure its not about the investment which may take massive depreciation if a court verdict does the wrong way?

Look at my comment above. Speaks for itself.

No pleasure.. best it find a new home where it can be enjoyed.

I have other hobbies that I find pleasure with and prefer at this time to have more time enjoying those.

What are your other cool hobbies if you want to share them? HAM Radio or something like that?

Aircooled VWs. Own a 67 Bus that I enjoy wrenching on.
Tenkara. This is a form of Japanese fly fishing. I fish as often as I can.
Retro Computers.. 8bit.. especially Sinclair but also enjoy many 8bit scenes.

More but the above 3 take most of my time.

@amigasociety

You should try converting your VW cars/buses to pure electric. Now that's a fun hobby!

A4000T in the Classified Listings

This guy managed to list his A4000T in the classifieds! Maybe you could get back into the Amiga Classic side of things with this purchase? Other than that you could ask him how to list on the AmigaWorld Classified Sales Pages

@amigasociety

Ok, assuming the sale is successful I guess you're out of here? Thanks for cataloguing your Amiga purchases and use over the years. It was interesting seeing your reactions to a machine and OS that you came to without prior experience. I'm sorry that this journey of discovery has come to an end. I view the Amiga as a platform that naturally encourages creativity and if that is no longer the case for you and its limitations are an annoyance then I completely understand your decision. God bless.

amigasociety will probably join the Amiga emulation crowd or get a Vampire V4.

Sad to see you leave the Amiga platform. Have been following your YouTube-channel for a while and noticed that it is the Speccy (and other old platforms) that gets you most excited these days. Congrats on the puppy btw!

@AmigaOldskooler

Thanks. Yeh, I have a blast exploring the older 8bits. Much more pleasurable for me these days. Thanks about the new pooch. Will be a nut house around here again soon.
