They relisted it at EUR720 and now again for EUR695, so I assume that they
would accept at EUR650 offer. I had made a EUR500 offer last time, maybe I'll
offer EUR450 this time to make a point.

It's not like I don't already have several other Amigas to be getting on with
until realisation dawns on this seller.

The A3000 was extremely rare in the UK as most Amigas were bought for gaming so
it was mainly A500s and A1200s. I found sales figures for Germany where this
eBay seller is, and the A3000 was by far the least popular machine there with
just 8,300 sales, versus 1.1M for the A500 and 100k for the A1200.
