Notable Stuff:

  • Reviews? What reviews?
  • This issue really was more of an advert for the Amiga with very little detail in terms of software reviews etc because it was released before the Amiga went on general sale.
  • The magazine from memory was only available to Amiga User group members. It didn't go on general public sale until issue 3 or 4
