I have many bookmarked hardware pages but for some reason they don't have dates in the specs along with each model. I'll include them for your info and perhaps you can find this info out from links that these pages have.

1985 is when the A1000 was released from there it snow balled

A3000: 1990
CDTV: 1991
A3000T: 1991
A4000/030 and /040: 1992

Thanks for the dates seems strange not to find a lot of this info on the hardware pages Perhaps just not enough time to update the pages I guess.

As for the pages, it's amazing what you start to find once you click on a links page or three........thousand :laugh

1991 seems a bit late for the CDTV, im sure it was more along the lines of 1989

Oops! Correction duly noted. @Andrew: Hope you weren't cramming for an exam on Amiga Chronology!

Interesting CDTV fact-ette: Project Manager was none other than Mr Nolan Bushnell. Here is a wildly optimistic quote from the man himself:

"CDTV will truly change the way people learn and are entertained. It's the real new media of the nineties."

No comment.

It was for my website that I'm working on. Was writing a page about the chronology of these machines but couldn't find anywhere on the net that said when they were introduced. Thanks, much appreciated

On the same note, my website, does anyone know how the Guru Meditiation got the name? I heard when they got an error they meditated, or something similiar. Thanks
