1337 means LEET, or ELITE. :lol:
OOps! I must have left my brain some other place when I read that. Haven't had occasion to use or read that 1337 term in a long time and it slipped right past me.

Do you know what would classic Amiga 500 machines cost today ?
I really have no idea. Anything from 10-25K I guess, if it's in good condition. You might look in eBay-USA to get an idea.
