Here you can get some clue about amiga models and freshen up your memories at once.
Those are general models (not all their various versions). In the 'ending era' there was of course many expansions to buy which could power-up your Amiga hell beyond it's previous concepts.

  • Amiga 500+

    Amiga 500+

    Second Generation

    Year: April 1991 (End production: 1992)
    CPU: MC68000@7.16MHz
    RAM: 1 MB Chip RAM
    Video: ECS (320x256@32c/320x512@32c/640x256@16c/640x512@16c/1280x256@4c/1280x512@4c) from 4096c pallette

    Sound: 4 channel 8 bit PCM, stereo output
    ROM/OS: Kickstart 2.04: 512 KB, Workbench 2.04



    After the huge success of the Amiga 500, Commodore launched a new version of the machine called the Amiga 500 Plus. Some small changes were made to reduce costs and a few hardware changes were also made. It featured 1 MB of memory, the new ECS chipset and a new version of AmigaOS which wasn't 100% compatible with software written for older versions. The A500+ has the shortest lifespan of any Amiga ever made, it was only on sale for around six months.

  • Amiga 600

    Amiga 600

    Second Generation

    Year: April 1992 (End production: 1993)
    CPU: MC68000@7.16MHz
    RAM: 1 MB Chip RAM, expandable to 2 MB Chip RAM (more via 3rd party add-ons)
    Video: ECS (320x256@32c/320x512@32c/640x256@16c/640x512@16c/1280x256@4c/1280x512@4c) from 4096c pallette
    64c in EHB, 4096c in HAM (320 res only)
    Sound: 4 channel 8 bit PCM, stereo output
    ROM/OS: Kickstart 2.05: 512 KB, Workbench 2.05
    I/O: PCMCIA/JEIDA card interface, IDE hard drive interface


    The smallest Amiga ever made, it is similar in size to a laptop and weighs just 6 lbs. Originally the A600 was to be sold alongside the A500+ as a budget model to be named the Amiga 300, but instead replaced the A500+ which required a name change.

    Very early models of the A600 have A300 printed on their motherboards, an indication of the confusion that was taking hold at Commodore after the surprise launch of the A500+. These early models also have a slightly different version of AmigaOS (although it is still version 2.05, it has the internal revision number 37.299) which doesn't have built-in support for the IDE or PCMCIA interfaces, the drivers for which must be loaded from a floppy disk. Later revisions of the AmigaOS (versions 37.300 & 37.350) have these drivers built-in.

  • Amiga 1200

    Amiga 1200

    Third Generation

    Year: October 1992 (End production: 1996)
    CPU: Motorola MC68EC020@14.3MHz + MC68881 FPU
    RAM: 2 MB Chip RAM, expandable to 10 MB max (2 MB Chip RAM + 8 MB Fast Ram)
    Video: AGA 320x256 to 1280x512 max, palette 16.7 million, 256 colors in normal modes
    262144 colors in HAM8
    Sound: 4 channel 8 bit PCM, stereo output
    ROM/OS: Kickstart 3.0/3.1: 512 KB, Workbench 3.0/3.1

    I/O: PCMCIA/JEIDA card interface, IDE hard drive interface, 150 pin local expansion port

    In October 1992 the Amiga 1200 was launched. This machine took the A500 approach to computing with the "distinct" Commodore case, but including the AGA chipset present in the A4000, 2 MB RAM, and the PCMCIA slot from the A600. At the price of Ł399 it sold like hot cakes and is seen as one of the best Amigas to date.
    After Escom bought the Amiga during 1995 it was relaunched to mass outrage.

  • Amiga cd32

    Amiga cd32

    Third Generation

    Year: September 1993 (End production: 1994)
    CPU: Motorola MC68EC020@14.3MHz + MC68881 FPU
    RAM: 2 MB Chip RAM + 1 KB flash

    ROM/OS: Kickstart 3.1: 512 KB + 512 KB extended ROM

    I/O: expansion interface, 2x Atari controller ports
    CD-ROM: 2x

    The CD32 is notable for being the first 32 bit CD-ROM based console ever released (the PlayStation wasn't released until the next year). It was based on the Amiga 1200 hardware which now had a new chip named Akiko that acted as a CD-ROM controller and I/O chip.

  • Amiga 4000

    Amiga 4000T

    Third Generation

    Year: October 1992
    CPU: Motorola MC68EC030@25 mHz (Eco version of the 68030) or MC68040@25 mHz
    RAM: 2Mb CHIP RAM + 2Mb or 4Mb Fast RAM (up to 16 Mb, and theorically to 4 Gb)
    Video: AGA 320x256 to 1280x512 max, palette 16.7 million, 256 colors in normal modes
    262144 colors in HAM8
    Sound: 4 channel 8 bit PCM, stereo output
    ROM/OS: Kickstart 3.0/3.1: 512 KB, Workbench 3.0/3.1

    I/O:Four 16/32-bit Zorro III expansion slots, Three PC AT slots, Video slot, internal AT IDE port

    The Amiga 4000 is one of the most powerful Amigas ever made.

    There were in fact two models of Amiga 4000 : - the A4000-040 released in September 92 with a Motorola 68040 Processor, 6 Mb RAM, internal 3.5" 1.76 Mb Floppy Drive and 120 Mb IDE Hard Drive, - and the A4000-030 released March 93, with Motorola 25MHz 68030EC processor, 4Mb RAM (2Mb Chip, 2Mb Fast), 3.5" FDD, 120Mb hard disk, etc. There was even a more powerful successor called Amiga 4000T ("T" stands for Tower). The A4000T is basically an A4000 in a full tower case with IDE & SCSI-2 Fast controllers integrated as well as 2 video slots and shipped with a 25MHz 68040 processor.
