Tuesday, July 23, 1985 – Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer at Lincoln Center in New York. Andy Warhol created a portrait of Debbie Harry during the demonstration. Amiga made waves in the press with its high-resolution color graphics and stereo sound.
The Commodore Amiga was one of the last great computers of the 1980's. With its custom graphics and sound chips, it had far more impressive capabilities than the PC's or Macs of the time, while costing less. Sadly Commodore went bankrupt in 1994, and the PC and Mac went on to become the dominant computing platforms of today.
