Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

The Amiga was the first computer to introduce custom chips for graphics and sound. All the other computers followed.

Uh... no? It had custom chips, yes, but it was far from the first. Gobs of home computers had custom chips for sound and video. Ataris, Commodore VIC and 64, MSX boxes, Tandys, etc etc.
