Commodore Amiga A600HD

The Commodore Amiga 600, also known as the A600 (codenamed "June Bug" after a B-52s song), was a home computer introduced at the CeBIT show in March 1992. The A600 was the final model of the original A500-esque line based on the Motorola 68000 CPU and the ECS chipset. A notable aspect of the A600 was its small size. Lacking a numeric keypad, the A600 was 14" long by 9.5" deep by 3" high and weighed approximately 6 pounds. AmigaOS 2.0 was included which was generally considered more user-friendly than AmigaOS 1.3.

The Amiga A600 was introduced in 1992 with a Motorola 68000 7.14mhz CPU and a RAM of 1024 kilobytes
Expandable to 2 megabytes

The "A600HD" model was sold with an internal 2.5" ATA hard disk drive of either 20 or 40 MB. This model was marketed as a more "scholarly" version of a home computer hitherto best known for its extensive range of games and retailed at almost double the price of a standard A600. However, this hard disk support introduced some incompatibility with existing Amiga software because the memory used for hard disk control prevented some memory intensive titles from launching without adding additional RAM.
