The Amiga Dictionary

This is an idea shamelessly stolen from the Retro Gamer forums.

Each post goes through the alphabet (i.e. this post is A, the next one will be B, and so on) and will relate to the Amiga in some way (machines, games, magazines, whatever), and when we get to Z we'll start back at A again. Be interesting to see how far this goes...

A is for A1000.

The first Amiga, released in 1985. The one that started it all.
