Amiga,
a family of personal computers marketed by Commodore International from the mid 80s to the mid 90s. Amiga was based on 68000 series of microprocessors and a custom chipset with graphics and sound capabilities, and had a pre-emptive multitasking operating system called AmigaOS. While especially the Amiga 500 was quite successful in Europe, later models had a hard time to compete versus the upcoming Apple Macintosh and the IBM PC and its compatibles. In 2012, Commodore USA, LLC sell a new line of PCs using the classic Commodore and Amiga name brands of personal computers, having licensed the Commodore brand from Commodore Licensing BV on August 25, 2010 [1] and the Amiga brand from Amiga, Inc. on August 31, 2010 [2] [3].
