I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to answer my questions
about the Amiga.  I have learned a little, and definitely realize that at
this point in my financial situation, I don't think I want to get another
potentially expensive hobby. :-)

And it sounds like the primary use for this system would be video 
capture/editting, which I am not really into yet.

I'll stick to the Macs/x86/Suns for the moment.  Less likely to get 
burned, since I know them better.

I am always surprised at the depth of information all of you seem to 
have.  It's like having a wiki-on-demand. :-)
