64 Bit Amiga 500?

Did anyone buy the 64 bit Amiga Commodore 64? This DJ apparently got one back in 1994 for 50 pounds.

Huh? This article is from a music journalist who mixed the Commdore Amiga and C64 because he doesn't know better. This has nothing to do with 64bit.

but the Amiga Commodore 64 – announced in 1989 with a screaming 7.16MHz CPU and 512KB of memory – was a revolutionary home computer.

Shame they upgraded bit's so much, yet we still cannot play AGA games.

Journalists should do simple fact checking. Even a Wikipedia search would have avoided this error.

Some journalists don't even bother doing the most basic research on anything that falls outside their immediate area of expertise.
