Friend of mine has an Amiga 1000 with video toaster. Odd thing is, all the designers signatures are inside the Amiga case. It is the coolest thing. Does any one know about this, or if it increases the value?

I still have mine.
Dunno that it's worth the copper inside, thought. :(

All A1000s had the designer's names molded inside the case (look for the pawprint of their mascot). If your friend's has actual signatures inside it, that's something special. Don't trash it in either case, there are plenty of enthusiasts that would give it a good home.

I didn't think the Toaster could be installed on a 1000? :confused:

Ah, the good old days... -MG :p

I still have my A1000. The Package was very nice.

You canīt use the Toaster with an A1000. But here in my city there are still Amiga Toaster and Flyer working.

That was the pawprint of Mitchy - Jay Miner's dog - according to Jay, Mitchy was as much a part of the original Amiga team as anyone. Sadly both Jay and Mitchy passed away several years ago.

A great piece of history to own and possibly the most elegantly designed personal computer ever.
