I spent $25 for my A2500 (no keyboard, mouse, or monitor), so I think
its a reasonable price. You can chuck any SCSI drive into it so that's
not a problem.

I found someone on the net who sold me an amiga keyboard for $30, but
$65 seems to be the going price. I have no idea on mice, I happened to
have one.
