Commodore Amiga 1000

The Commodore Amiga 1000, also known as the A1000 and originally simply as the Amiga, is the first personal computer released by Commodore International in the Amiga line. It combines the 16/32-bit Motorola 68000 CPU which was powerful by 1985 standards with one of the most advanced graphics and sound systems in its class, and runs a preemptive multitasking operating system that fits into 256 kB of read-only memory and shipped with 256 kB of DRAM. The primary memory can be expanded internally with a manufacturer supplied 256 kB module for a total of 512 kB of DRAM. Using the external slot the primary memory can be expanded up to 8.5 MB
