Commodore
Amiga 600HD

The Amiga 600HD is exactly the same as the standard A600 with the exception of a built-in 2.5" hard drive, hence the HD tag. A number of different packages were available with hard drive sizes ranging from 20 to 80 MB.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

I still own one of these, except now, I''ve replaced the Internal HDD, with a Compact Flash HDD, which runs a lot faster, and quieter. - For me, the Amiga brought some great games to the table, which for me are Cannon Fodder, KGB, Manic Miner (the Amiga version, not the Spectrum Version), Lemmings, Troddlers. - I won''t ever sell this system, I grew up with it practically, and still play the games when I can :)

Way back when I was in the lower grades of elementary school, I remember these being about. This was the computer we had upgraded to from the C64's. If I remember correctly, ours was shipped with Workbench 3, which allowed up to 256 colors to be used on the desktop. The harddrives we had were 20 MB, and the "techies" at our school installed children's games (Ready Robot Club comes to mind).
However, I was helping one of the techies dig through some old boxes, and we came upon an Amiga 600 HD/80, the highest size hard drive, if I recall correctly. Going through, I found that it had been used as sort of a pre-Video Toaster! It had software that took advantage of the 4096-color HAM mode and allowed for 3D rendering animation.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Atari never did that, did they? ;)

The Amiga 600 was a powerful machine indeed, even if it wasn't the MOST powerful. Its ability to multitask and its sound and video capabilities made it a VERY powerful computer. Kickstart wasn't particularly easy to upgrade; I believe you had to disassemble the Amiga to get to it.

Since Kickstart came in a ROM chip, it was actually quite simple; instead of installing an endless amount of drivers (as our modern-day computers require), no hard drive space would be wasted, leaving room for...Say...Workbench and a whole other list of programs.

The computer came with a PCMCIA slot on the side (though I don't quite know for what. Perhaps internet?)

Its RF output was color, as opposed to the mono on the Amiga 500's.
