What Hardware Did You Yearn For?

Boing Boing has a bit on a 9 year old's fanatic drawings of the PSP he desires. Which reminds me distinctly of when I first wanted ... rather needed ... an Amiga 500 when I was younger. In the middle of boring PCs and academic Macs, the Amiga seemed like a multimedia funhouse for the home. The related blog entry at Hoopty drags up memories of 2600 yearning. While the 2600 and Intellivision were both seminal game machines for me, it was actually the adults in my life who decided to get them. With the Amiga, though, I can remember staying up late trying to explaing multi-tasking to my parents.
