Commodore Amiga 500 Teardown

Published 11 November 2017


This is a teardown of the classic Amiga 500. Starting at the expansion card, EEVblog unscrewed this delight and bringing it back to life again at the end. There are closeups of Fat Agnus, Paula, Denise and Gary. And here is my biggest confession yet.... We did not know that Commodore's internal name for the A500 was the Rock Lobster.
