Just read the first issue of Amiga Magazine. Big fun, looking at the prices for the hardware back then . I mean, 1200 baud modems at a price of about 200 euro... and people were buying them.

200 for 1200 baud modem, yes a lot compared with todays standards, but Amigas in those days were cheaper than today

Site admins are people too..pooff!

Were the Amigas really that much cheaper back then? I recall the first Amiga setup entering our home at a price close to the 1200 euro mark. The setup contained an un-expanded A500 with kick and workbench 1.3, a Commodore 1084S monitor and a Star NX1000 rainbow printer. We got it at a bargain as it was a setup that had been on display for some time.

Now, when I go to the site of Amigakit then I'm handing them some 800 euro for a Sam440 with video, 1GB RAM and 500GB harddisk with OS4.1 pre-installed. With that comes the AmigaOne keyboard and Boingball Mouse. Then there is still need for a case, say 100 euro, a monitor, say 120 euro and a laser-printer, again 100 euro brings it to a total of just over 1100 euros. I know... compared to PC speeds the SAM doesn't match the MHz thing and yes I know a WinTel box can be had far more cheaper but I look at the entry level AmigaOne from now and compare it with the entry level Amiga from back then. I reckon that's a rather reasonable comparison.
