Amiga 2000

The Commodore Amiga 2000 is for me the most iconic computer I ever had. The power of the Amiga compared to it’s same era IBM PC’s and Apple Mac was amazing. It was the first time people were able to buy a workstation with multimedia capabilities.

Coming from the C64 this was a massive and powerful beast.

The expansion possibilities were amazing. Even now you can buy expansions for adding IDE or USB.
