Especially on an Amiga site in the 'Amiga scene' section.

I like the controller wrapped round my neck while I'm sitting on the lid.

Can't say I think of anything man made as beautiful.

I suppose the word I'd use to describe the CD32 is "hilarious".

I think it's made out of Tic Tac boxes.

In order of preference;

1000
3000
500
CDTV


The CD32 is too cheap looking, 1200 is too compact for my liking and the angled DD is ghey, should've kept the the 500 casing style.

Best case design is the A1k IMHO. BTW you do know that Jay Miner described the ST as "A neat little computer" right?
A bit of googling for George Robbins* and Atari ST on google groups might throw up something interesting too.

*Rest his soul. He'll be missed

I owned an amiga for 5 years 1988-1993 and it never broke down once not even a slight fault no other computer in existance has been more reliable than the amiga.
On the other hand the atari st i owned broke down 6 times in 6 months due to the fact they put the power supply inside the computer how mad is that also they put a spectrum 128k sound chip in oh and it could not handle smooth scrolling wizball being a prime example.
The only good thing aout the atari was tnt & oids game.

That's a pity you had so much hassle with it Mine has been going strong since March 1990 with no issues. The sound chip was an odd decision but musicians are getting decent results out of it now.

Have a look at
http://moobunny.dreamhosters.com/cgi...rist/124.shtml

The STE and Falcon have hardware scrolling which was a major flaw in the ST. Well I say major flaw but the standard machine is capable of sync scrolling. Have a look at Enchanted lands. It's a nice trick. The ST doesn't deserve the abuse it gets from Amiga owners. If Jay Miner thought it was a neat computer and George Robbins owned one they couldn't be that bad
