IMO, big box Amigas are still overpriced, but I'm expecting a price crash on
them over the next few months. However, their main selling point of
expandability through the Zorro bus didn't really matter because most people
bought the small box Amigas and some amazing stuff was crufted onto them.

People are literally giving away the A500 and A1200 machines. I've been
offered quite a few rescues of fairly loaded systems, but alas my house is
getting rather full.

Of that specific system, sure. Of course, you could probably separately sell
the Toaster board on eBay for a tidy sum and keep the computer.
