Looking for 1985 "Personal Computing" mag
« on: December 28, 2011, 11:11:58 PM »
Looking for the mid-late 1985 "Personal Computing" magazine that featured a cyan background on the cover with an Amiga 1000, etc. in the foreground. It was their big Amiga issue.

Anyone? Thanks.

Thought I had found it.
 
But I dug out a late 1985 Creative Computing that has 'A Hands-on Report on the Amiga'.
 
I will toss it towards the front of the pile to scan.

Hahahahaha! I've got a sneaking suspicion that this thread is going to turn into covers of ALL computing mags besides the one Blakespot is looking for.

That sooooo would be A.org that way.   :laughing:

BRING ON THE A1000 FRONT COVERS!   :lol:

You mean Personal Computer World (PCW) magazine from England which had an 8 page review of the A1000 by none other than Guy Kewney?

I scanned that about 3 years ago but no idea where it is right now, will have a trudge through 4TB of data and see if I can find it again. I did also up it onto a photobucket account but I stopped using it about 2 years ago so again no idea what the username is to locate it sorry.

Yes that's the issue I bought on ebay many years ago and scanned the cover and Amiga review section.

I thought I scanned the Amiga article, but can't seem to find it on the hard drive... amazing how easy it is to lose things on a terrabyte. ;-)

YES!

THAT IS IT!! I need to get hold of this magazine in some form. THIS is the manner in which I first learned of the Amiga and my lusting began. I wore it out, the one I had, actually. Literally.

Is this scanned somewhere?! Thanks!
