Commodore Amiga 1000

The Amiga computers were a big step forwards for Commodore. The Amiga 1000 was the first in the series of Amiga's.
The Amiga 1000 is a computer system with a separate keyboard, internal power-supply, disk drive and a motherboard. On the motherboard you will find a 16-bit Motorola 68000 processor and three co-processors: Denise (video), Agnus (memory, blitter and copper) and Paula (audio and I/O). De A1000 has the OCS or the Original Chip Set.
By using different processors for specific tasks the Amigas are very efficient and quick.
