Commodore's Amiga 500 was the low-end version of the Amiga 2000 and the main competitor of Atari's 520/1040 ST range.
Hardware wise, the A500 is very similar to the Amiga 1000, the main internal differences being an increase in memory fom 256 KB to 512 KB and the addition of another custom chip named "Gary" (the only Amiga chip with a male name).
The A500 was easier to upgrade than both the ST and big box Amigas, thanks to an expansion port located in the bottom of the case.

  Amiga - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first model, called the Amiga 1000, was released in 1985 as a successor to the Commodore 64 and a rival to the Atari ST.
Amiga's three-finger salute, (CTRL plus the two "Amiga" keys), which reboots the system (but doesn't erase or reload the kickstart software) is actually implemented in hardware, unlike the software-based forms in many OSs.
In 2006, the Amiga OS is uniquely poised to be ported to the Cell (microprocessor), the new CPU subsystem for the Sony Playstation 3, and IBM Blade Servers, which has been touted as the "New New CRAY" in supercomputing circles.

 AmigaOS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On the first Amiga model, the A1000, this was loaded from disk, although eventually the Kickstart was embedded in a ROM chip inside the computer.
Likewise, while the Amiga is well known for its ability to easily genlock with video, it had no built in video capture interface.
The Amiga 1000 Kickstart floppy diskette master for AmigaDOS 1.0 was not erased prior to duplication, and contains the remnants of various source code and header text files on the disk.

 Amiga Explorer - Home Page (amigaexplorer.com)
Amiga Explorer is available as a stand-alone package, or as part of Amiga Forever Plus Edition, where it can be installed from the CD.
Amiga explorer can access files on any type and size of Amiga partition, however the creation of virtual hardfiles uses 32-bit logic (as in the original Workbench up to version 3.1) which limits the maximum size of HDF disk images that can be created
Amiga Explorer is free to try, so you can make sure that your hardware and cabling work fine and that the software satisfies your needs before purchasing it.

 TweakGuides.com - Amiga Emulation Guide
The original Amiga (the Amiga 1000) arrived in 1985, and although I'd heard about it and seen it in computer stores, it wasn't until the Amiga 500 came out in 1987 that my parents considered buying one.
On top of all this, the Amiga inspired some phenomenal efforts from the "demoscene" which are still cool when viewed today.
The Amiga 500, much like the Commodore 64 before it, was the platform of choice for budding programmers and enthusiasts, and this Amiga Emulation guide is my homage to the mighty Amiga 500.

 Commodore Amiga 1000 computer
Introduced in July 1985, the Amiga 1000 was created in part by Jay Miner, who previously designed the Atari 400 and Atari 800.
The Amiga was originally designed to be a killer game machine, but it was so great that it grew into a real computer.
The Amiga 1000 was a quantum leap above any other system out at the time, as it included a 32bit pre-emptive multi-tasking GUI (Graphic User Interface), 4 channel stereo sound, 880k 3-1/2 inch floppy disks, and video modes which provided up to 4096 colors at once.

 Define Amiga - a definition from Whatis.com
Amiga is a personal computer designed especially for high-resolution, fast response graphics and multimedia applications, especially games.
Since Amiga was designed as a special-purpose system, AmigaOS, which is written in C and assembler language, is especially compact.
The Amiga has the ability to become a video monitor by locking into a video signal from an external source such as a video camera.

The software will run on any Amiga computer with Workbench 2.04 or greater, at least 3 Mb of memory, and a minimum of 11 Mb of hard drive space (17 Mb of disk space are required for a full installation).
Due to the calculation-intensive nature of this software, an accelerated Amiga and math chip (FPU) is strongly recommended, though not required.

 Wired News: Amiga Back From the Dead Again
On April 1, at Amiga 2000, a developer's show in St. Louis, Amiga's new owners will unveil a new developers' machine, according to company officials, who acquired the platform rights from Gateway last year.
Launched in 1982 by a trio of Florida dentists, the Amiga was ahead of its time with a fast, stable operating system that looked fantastic and was great for multimedia, especially video.
Over the years, the Amiga name and technology was passed from Commodore, which went bust, to Escom, which also went out of business, to Gateway, which late last year sold it to a cadre of Amiga fans headed up by former Gateway marketing executives Bill McEwen and Fleecy Moss.
