Amiga Computers

Welcome to my Amiga collection.

This page is a repository for all of the Amiga systems, peripherals, and accessories in my collection – it’s currently a work-in-progress, and I’ll continue to add things as and when I have the time.

The Commodore Amiga 500+ is an upgraded version of the original Amiga 500 computer. It introduced new versions of Kickstart and Workbench, 1MB RAM, and minor chipset improvements. Although officially introduced in 1992, some A500+ units had already been sold (masquerading as A500 models) during late 1991. It was discontinued and replaced by the Amiga 600 in summer 1992, making it the shortest-lived Amiga model.

The Amiga 600, or A600, is a home computer introduced in March 1992. It is the final Amiga model based on the Motorola 68000 and the Amiga Enhanced Chip Set (ECS). A redesign of the Amiga 500+, it adds the option of an internal hard disk drive and a PCMCIA port. Like the A500, the A600 was aimed at the lower end of the market, and was intended it to revitalize sales before the introduction of the 32-bit Amiga 1200.

It was launched a few months after the Amiga 600, using a similar slimline design – whereas the A600 used the 16-bit Motorola 68000 of earlier Amigas, the A1200 was built around the faster and more powerful Motorola 68EC020.

The Cumana CAX-354 is an external 3.5″ FDD designed for use with the Commodore Amiga. As HDDs were very expensive in the 1980s, and disk management was difficult when using only one FDD, adding secondary drives to a setup was very common. It supports 3.5″ double-density (DD) 880 KB floppy disks, and connects to the Amiga range of home computers through the external drive port, via a DB-23 connector cable.
