Do you consider Amiga a console?

Obvious for some, stupid question for others, and a console for few... so, what do you think, and why?

I'd say *NOT*. Just because it has a keyboard, is "open" for outside solutions (than the mother-company) which makes it easly programmable and upgradable, has a floppy drive, has an operating system, and generally, can do almost everything you could want to do on a computer beside playing games.

This is like asking whether you consider a cucumber to be a type of meat. Worst poll ever (not including SensiFan's shit!)

The CD32 is a console. The rest are computers. The CDTV, well nobody knew what it was for, really.

LOL!

Anyone who dares to now vote "Console" or even "Maybe" will be thoroughly thrashed, lashed and whipped into the correct frame of mind by the EAB witch hunting mob!!!

Whose brave enough to try? Fred could, but he'd probably enjoy the beating...

By any definition, the Amiga is a Personal Computer, CD32 is a console.

As you pointed out, CD32 is both an Amiga and a console, so why would you vote "No, definitely"? Unless this is a joke, and then the joke's on me.

Nope.... the CD32 was a console, well, also a computer as it had WB and all that stuff aswell.....

But all the A500, 1200 etc are NOT consoles.

I feel that it is neither, but more a state of zen.
