Prevue Amiga 1000 Keyboards

Post by AriX » Wed Nov 07, 2018 11:09 pm

Check out these keyboards that hit eBay! I'm so tempted to pick one up, but I don't have an A1000 so I'm not sure what I'd do with it.

I love how it's got an old-style Prevue logo and on the right-side it says "A United Video company, 1988".

Do we know what Prevue used A1000s for? 1988 was the year the Prevue Channel launched, I believe. Perhaps some of the first hardware they made was A1000-based rather than using A2000s?

Must admit my memory is getting poor on what we discovered/figured out 8 years ago or whatever :) but I'm pretty sure we decided some of the early EPG was on 1000s?

What did you do with the keyboard in the end, AriX? Is it sitting in a box somewhere or did you put it to good use? haha
