Commodore produced arguably the finest 16-bit home
computers known as the Amiga range. Amongst that range of "big-box Amigas" and business machines were the the Commodore Amiga 500 - and the later
improved 32-bit Amiga 1200 featuring a new AGA
Unfortunately Commodore's attempts to muscle in on the games console
market failed, first with the Commodore 64 Games System
(C64GS) based around the ageing Commodore 64 computer and the CD32 which
was based on the Amiga 1200.
Despite Commodore going bankrupt and various other companies also struggling to take Commodore and Amiga hardware brands forward, all was not lost! There is now an active community of Amiga users and new ongoing development of retro Amiga hardware, software and accessories. As well as Next Generation Amigas being produced by A-EON and homebrew teams such as Apollo Accelerators/Vampire.
