Magazine articles with earliest references to the Amiga

I was going through some old magazines and came across an early reference to the Amiga in the Australian Personal Computer - May 1984. The short article talks about Amiga the company and it's computer the Lorraine, making the decision to use the 68000 and that the computer will be it's major product in 1984 ! Maybe an AMR section on magazine articles covering the Amiga before it was launcned or other (often incorrect) pre-release information might be an interesting collection.
