Amiga 1000 Spec Sheet
AMIGA 1000 PERSONAL COMPUTER SYSTEM
If you haven't found the right computer yet, then you've never met Amiga(TM). No other personal computer, even the ones that cost a lot more, can catch Amiga feature for feature. It's light years ahead of the rest and that keeps you ahead of the competition.
There's never been a computer with this much power at this low price. Amiga's 256K RAM is just a start. Amiga allows you to expand up to 512K internally and 8 megabytes externally. The power goes deeper. In addition to the powerful microprocessor that's the heart of the Amiga, we've added three amazing custom chips that handle graphics, sound and routine operations. These custom chips free the central processor from normal "computer housekeeping" and allow direct memory access and multi-tasking.
There's never been a computer with this kind of speed and agility. Amiga combines speed and power into a truly remarkable machine. Amiga is faster than Macintosh(R) and IBM(R) PC. And many times more productive, because it's multi-tasking. Amiga can print your cover memo, search your data base, make a bar graph, all while using a spreadsheet. And there's probably enough power left over to receive a phone message or stock quote over a modem at the same time.
There's never been a computer with graphics like this. Amiga sees the world more like you din over 4,000 colors. With dimension, animation and almost photographic realism. You can even take an image from a video camera or VCR, transfer it to the Amiga and then add color, animation or special effects.
There's never been a computer that sounds this good. Amiga comes with four channels of sound and a bass response and octave range that exceed many stereo speakers. And Amiga talks in a male or female voice with an unlimited vocabulary.
There's never been a computer with this kind of versatility. Amiga can be expanded to run IBM PC software. You can add almost any printer, modem, or accessory you'd ever want. And there's room for the ones still being invented. Amiga's "open architecture" allows future expandability so it's the last computer you'll have to buy.
There's never been a computer that's easier to use. Amiga lets you choose to use symbols instead of complicated commands or strange codes. Just point the Amiga "mouse" at pictures of what you want to do. Or use the keyboard. Of course, if you already speak the language, you can talk to Amiga in BASIC, PASCAL, LOGO, C, LISP and Assembler. Amiga is friendlier sit gives you more choices.
There's never been a computer this useful. Amiga will be your number cruncher, filing system, audio-visual department, graphic designer, print shop and faithful workhorse. Amiga's business capabilities allow you to change a product's shape or color, alter its composition or improve its operation. While at the same time produce reports and charts for production costs, delivery dates and sales volume.
You are about to enter a new world of speed and power, a dazzling universe of color and dimension that is unmatched by other personal computers at any price. Let alone the price of an Amiga.
