My first computer was an AMIGA 500
The Amiga 500 was the second Amiga machine produced, after the Amiga 1000. The 500 was an all-in-one design that needed only an external display to be useful.
I upgraded to an Amiga 2000 in 1990 this was the first computer which could used for Non Linear Editing (NLE ) .
