    Amiga Resource was a spinoff of Compute! that covered the Amiga exclusively. It didn’t really last very long, possibly because there were already other well established Amiga magazine by the time it came along or because it was not published monthly, at least at first. The February 1990 issue includes:

    Because I had a Commodore 64 and wanted an Amiga, I always loved this official Commodore publication. The July 1988 issue includes:

    Features

    • Science and the Amiga – From Astronomy to Zoology, scientific research is no longer limited to the laboratory. Anyone with an Amiga and the right software can explore his own personal frontiers.
