I recently saved about 130 Amiga disks from the garbage and want a computer to use them with. What do you think I should look for ? 64, 500, 1200 ?

What great photos! I like your version of the usb drive as well. The plastic for mine came from a defunct Laserwriter II. I've got pictures of the donor system on my last blog post.
