    We are about to launch a few Amiga products on retrorewind.ca. Currently we only sell stuf for Commodore's 8-bit line of computers.

    I wanted to get a feeling from Amiga users on the tyuypes of items you are looking for.

    I don't, nor have I ever owned an Amiga, but I've been looking into getting one. Looks like the userbase is split between people who keep their hardware close to original spec/with addons like wifi modems, seemingly like the one you
    sell for the C64/128, and users who "Turbo Nerd" their Amigas with Vampire Chips, the latest of which is a SBC/FPGA that emulates the system or some other
    similar such method.

    I'm not sure about any additional hardware some users may be especially seeking
    outside of new oldstock or new reproduction parts for the original hardware.

    The amiga is definately harder to develop hardware for. The 64 is a breeze compared to the good old Amiga.

    We will be carrying the basics like accelerators, diagnostic hardware, kickstart switchers, etc. What I really wanted to see if what people are craving.
