Compute!’s Amiga Resource (Summer 1989)

in #retrocomputing12 days ago (edited)

Compute! was among the best multi-format computer magazines of the 1980s. Compute!'s Gazette was an equally great magazine dedicated to the Commodore 64. Compute! had a number of other machine specific spin-offs but none of them ever did as well or lasted particularly long though there was nothing really wrong with the quality. Compute!'s Amiga Resource is one of these spin-offs that happens to be dedicated to the Amiga. The Summer 1989 issue includes:


  • The Ultimate Amiga - Build the perfect system for any job.
  • Multitasking Miner - A conversation with the father of the Amiga.
