After seeing the Commodore Amiga on Micro Live and hankering after an A1000 after seeing the juggler demo in SilicaShop, the release of the A500 was every school nerd's dream, an affordable 16-bit multi-tasking computer! Blessed with being released in what was widely regarded as the first decent film bundle (the Batman pack) these flew off the shelves. After the 1/2 meg RAM pack was released to bring the spec up to 1/2Mb chip RAM and 1/2Mb fast RAM (needed to play games like Dungeon Master) a new model was released, the A500+. This was the same model with 1Mb of chip RAM. The older model could be converted but it needed a steady hand and a soldering iron, not to mention nerves of steel. Later came the 32-bit A1200 with enhanced chips and a cut down 16-bit model, the A600. Between these CBM also released the CDTV (which bombed) and the Amiga CD32, this was really a CD console using the Amiga 1200s hardware. My first Amiga was a Batman bundle, I can still remember excitedly carrying the box home on the bus and being in awe of its workbench OS.
