Shopping For A Home Computer? Check Out The Amiga

SHOPPING FOR A HOME COMPUTER? CHECK OUT THE AMIGA

I am writing in response to "Buying a computer for your kid is child's play--almost" (Personal Business, May 10). I am disappointed that the Amiga was omitted as a viable option as a home computer.

For $800, an Amiga 1200 system can be purchased that rivals a 386 or even a 486. Sixteen million colors (256 at one time) and four-channel stereo sound come standard with the machine (no need to keep buying cards to get those features). And it has a sleek, true multitasking operating system that is a joy to work with. It has a tremendous amount of software available. I feel an Amiga is the best choice for a home computer.
