The Amiga 1000 is the first in the line of Amiga computers, also known as the A1000. It has a few features that cannot be found on later Amiga models. Firstly it is the only model to have the tick logo on the case. It has a keyboard garage on the underside when not in use.
The inside of the case has the signatures of the 53 designers, along the lines of the Apple Macintosh, one of the designers was Jay Miner, who also had the paw print of his dog Michy.
At this early stage, the Amiga OS was carrying a few bugs, so was not included in ROM, instead there is a separate board with 256K of RAM, called the WCS or Writable Control Store. In to this is the Kickstart or bootable program is loaded, and once there does not need to be reloaded, it is called the WOM, or Write Once Memory, and is then write protected.
